Welcome to the Beekeeper Education & Engagement System!
The BEES network is a new online resource for beekeepers at all levels. The system is entirely internet-based and aims to foster an online learning community among beekeepers. The structure of the BEES network is broken into two ascending levels of complexity (Beginner and Advanced) and three general tracks of content (honey bee biology, honey bee management, and the honey bee industry).
No specialized equipment or prior experience necessary—just an internet connection, a standard web browser, and a desire to learn about bees!
Topic selection is a la carte, so you can pick and choose exactly which topics you wish to learn about.
You can go at your own pace; there is no mandate as to how quickly you progress through each course. Most people finish the ~1 hour of content in a given course within a week, well within the default 30-day sunset of each course.
All proceeds support the NC State Apiculture Program and our various research and extension endeavors.
The donation fee for each course is $35, and enrollment is a la carte.
You can pick and choose exactly what courses you want!
See the list of courses that are currently available above. There are no mandates or prerequisites for taking any BEES course so that you do not have to take one in order to take another. We are only able to accept online payments by credit card.
