Apprentice-Level Beekeeping Test-Out  

Experienced beekeepers may begin at the Journeyman level if they pass the Apprentice-Level final exams. To test into the Journeyman course, participants must achieve an average score of 80% or higher across both parts of the online exam, which have been designed to determine Apprentice-Level proficiency.

We suggest reading the Apprentice-Level book before attempting the exams: Storey’s Guide to Keeping Honey Bees, Malcom T. Sanford and Richard E. Bonney, Storey Publishing 2010, ISBN 978-1-60342-550-6 (pbl.: alk. Paper); ISBN 978-1-60342-551-3 (hardcover: alkpaper).

There are two parts of the exam. The comprehensive exam is 32 questions with a time limit of 90 minutes to complete. The video practicum is 30 questions with a time limit of 75 minutes to complete. You will have only one attempt to pass the exams. Exams will be graded within 10 business days, and participants will be notified of their score by email.

If you receive a passing score, you may register for the next available Journeyman-Level course by visiting the program website. If a Journeyman-Level course is not currently available, you will be notified of future offerings by email.
