Hi, I’m David Burns and for over a decade I’ve taught beekeeping classes here at my training center in central Illinois. So many beekeepers from around the country have expressed their disappointment that they live too far away to take one of my classes. So I rolled up my sleeves to now make my classes available as online courses.
Certification of Achievement
Once you have completed the class simply complete the final worksheet and send it to us at 14556 N 1020 E, Fairmount IL 61841. We have teachers who will check it over, make notations and return. Once you complete the course you will receive a nice certificate of completion you can frame. You do not have to send in the final worksheet if you do not want the certificate.
