● not drawn from a qualification the RTO is registered to provide, and
● not drawn from the training package that hosts the qualification into which the unit is being drawn as an electivee.g. An RTO registered to deliver Certificate 111 in Food processing can now deliver some electives in Beekeeping from the Certificate 111 in Agriculture -Beekeeping.
Australian Beekeeping Traineeship Program
Do you want to become a beekeeper? Do you want to improve your skills and knowledge about bees and the Australian beekeeping industry? Do you want to improve your management skills? Specialised beekeeping traineeships are now available in:
These certificates are nationally recognised. They will provide an excellent grounding in beekeeping skills and knowledge, as well as the general skills needed to be a good all-round employee or manager of a beekeeping business.
There is also material that can be used to make existing farm chemical safety courses more relevant to beekeepers. You can design your own training program by selecting units of competency that are relevant to your interests and the work that you will be doing. Courses may be available by correspondence or workshops or a mix of both.
Government assistance may be available for commercial beekeepers who want to employ a trainee. Amateur beekeepers will also be able to undertake the training programs if they wish.
Bendigo TAFE (BRIT) is now providing the opportunity for full qualifications in Beekeeping primarily through traineeship programs. They currently have more than 10 people working toward either their Certificate III or IV in Agriculture (specialising in Beekeeping) from businesses based in Mildura to the Mornington Peninsula. They are keen to discuss training requirements; some examples have been to date, how to gain formal recognition for skills already developed or assisting in the training of new employees. Bendigo TAFE looks forward to hearing from more Beekeepers in the future.
