  • North Carolina State University offers on-line, self-paced classes at various levels of mastery.  It is called Beekeeper Education and Engagement System (BEES).  There is a suggested donation of $25 per course.

  • Pennsylvania State University offers an on-line course called “Penn State Beekeeping 101.”  Course is $159.  The course is open to beekeepers of all levels of experience.  Enrollment gives the student access to the program and materials for a year.
