    Will you provide more background on this? I've never heard of "qualified level" exam. Who is doing the qualifying?

    Well, I took an Exam and have an Associates Degree. Does that count?

    Need a Like button on this thread. Especially for the BS degree!
    Stuck in Texas. Learning Permaculture in drought, guess I will teach permaculture in drought. The bees are still alive.

    Perhaps your state has an equivalent? - Mike

    Cornell has something like that. As does EAS. I don't know very many people who have the certificates, but I am sure they are out there.

    I don't imagine you are really asking me, but that never stopped me answering before.

    Were I to seek such a certificate it would be for the learning experience, the knowledge. Just likie my AAS, the certificate is of little value. It's the knowldge one had to gain to earn the certificate.

    Maine does not. We have EAS as our Master Beekeeper certifier, and that is the only level. Ann Harmon has written about the different Master Beekeeper programs in the last two Bee Culture magazines. I'm pretty sure I will take the tests (plural) next year (at my wife's urging) even though I am not sure what the benefits to my own operation will be.

    Mark you can gain the knowledge without the certificate or the degree. Are you telling me if I followed you around for two month I would not get knowledge? Do you hand out degrees? Knowledge has very little to do with certificates or degrees.

    Not telling you anything. There are different ways to gain knowledge and different reasons for doing so. Maybe someone wants to prove something to themselves.

    Please remember there is a big difference between Education and Knowledge.

    I would be willing to bet that both of you would "get knowledge", but it could result in a bad case of hives....

    I am certain we would both learn something. We both may learn that we did not wish to repeat the experience. Or we both may learn a better way to keep bees. I might even give you a certificate of completion. The knowledge you would have to gain on your own some how.
