Master Beekeeper Program

This page is dedicated to SCBA members who are working on becoming a Master Beekeeper. “The N.C. Master Beekeeper Program’s (MBP) … “purpose is to provide an infrastructure whereby beekeepers can improve their beekeeping skills and knowledge on a continuous basis within a system that objectively and formally acknowledges those accomplishments. It also serves as a means of providing valuable information to beekeepers and the public through various outreach services.”  — Developed by Dr. John Ambrose; Resource: North Carolina State Beekeepers Association website.

The Master Beekeeper Program of the NCSBA consists of 4 levels: the Certified Beekeepers level, the Journeyman Beekeeper level, the Master Beekeeper level, and the Master Craftsman Beekeeper level. For details about these programs, select this link to go to the NCSBA site.

  1. We are attempting to update our record to make sure all Certified Beekeeper certificates due NCSBA members were issued. If any member of your chapter has taken the Certified test and practical but has not received a Certificate, please let us know.

    Forward information: Name, NCSBA number, address, phone, email, test score, and instructor.
