If you are a beekeeper who is interested in continuing to learn and perhaps even push yourself outside of your comfort zone in beekeeping. I would highly recommend going through the Texas Master Beekeeping Program.
For us, it was a way to hold ourselves accountable to continuing to learn more about honey bees in an academic fashion. We feel that understanding bees in this capacity has led us to think outside the box in our apiary, pay more attention to pests and diseases, and to reflect on what is happening on our colonies even more closely.
We are finishing up our year as Advanced Level candidates and will be testing for the Master level this fall.
You can find more information here, even if you just want to take advantage of the tremendous resources – this is a great way to continue to grow as a beekeeper.
