The club will be running two training courses, followed by the specified exam for members and other beekeepers as follows:
- 23rd September, at 1:00 pm, in Johnsonville Community Centre.
- 28th October, at 8:30 am, in Pinehaven School, Silverstream.
The second of these courses will be held in the Upper Hutt area to pick up the beekeepers from there or the southern Wairarapa. The cost will be $45 for each training course (including the exam fee). Refreshments provided. Contact Mary-Ann (478 3367) to register.
There are still 400 untrained beekeepers in Wellington. As many as possible will be phoned & invited to attend a training session.
The club's objective is to have as many of the beekeepers in the Wellington region (especially club members) pass the competency exam as possible. To achieve this, we will run regular training courses and exam opportunities. New members will be assisted to complete the requirements for having an approved DECA and to pass the competency exam.
