Education points are earned by attending educational events such as Oregon Master Beekeeper classes, local bee schools, beekeeper conferences, and field days in which one learns through observation rather than through actually working colonies. Education points are assigned based on the number of hours dedicated to the activity.
Examples of bee-related activities that qualify for education points are as follows:
It is the responsibility of the student to record his/her time involved in activities that qualify for education points to meet this requirement of the program. We encourage students to take notes about the educational events in their log. An Education Point Worksheet is included in this packet.
The completed Education Point Worksheet must be submitted with other materials when applying for certification.
