Gain a nationally accredited qualification in beekeeping while you work in the Beekeeping Industry. Enrolment opens February 2018.
Beekeeping traineeships are open to paid employees of beekeepers. The traineeship leads to a nationally accredited Certificate III in Beekeeping AHC32016 qualification.
Currently Tocal College does not deliver the Certificate III in Beekeeping as a School Based Apprenticeship or Traineeship.
Training includes a blend of face to face and online courses, both including practical components with hands on exercises involving bee hives and various beekeeping equipment. The applicant must successfully complete five core units and five elective units, as shown in Course details, to attain a Certificate III in Beekeeping.
Complete course details can be found in the AHC32016 - Certificate III in Beekeeping.
Smart & Skill Course Fee: This course is considered a student contribution to the full cost of training, the difference being subsidised by the State Government. The fee payable depends upon eligibility and access to concessons or exemptions.
Currently trainees can expect to pay:
- $1,000 for NSW Smart and Skilled supported Traineeship*
*More information is available on the Smart & Skilled website.
Traineeships attract substantial subsidies for employers and allowances for employees (including for accommodation and travel). Contact an Australian Apprenticeship Centre or the Traineeship Coordinator at Tocal for more information.
