    Question Internships/Apprenticeships - What are the terms?

    I have heard of people working with established beekeepers for a period of time in order to gain valuable knowledge, information and experience.

    Some of you are established beekeepers who offer these kind of apprenticeships; others of you have taken part as the apprentice or student.

    I'm wondering what kind of terms you have set up or experienced.

    What are the costs to the apprentice?
    What is offered by the Teacher?
    How long do these types of engagements usually last?
    If you are an established beekeeper who does this - what specifically do you offer and under what terms?

    Thanks,

    Adam

    I take on interns, but I pay them if my payroll isn't already maxed out. So, If you want a job...part time or full, let me know. One popular time is when we are making nucs. We catch queens every four days, ship some, and use the rest to make nucs for a couple days. Then catch more queens and do it again. This is about June 10-July 15.

    Local beekeepers come hang out for a day here and there. I try to have them help in each different management period...unwrapping, supering, reversing, queen catching, nuc making, requeening, harvest, winter preps.

    Anyone want a job? Part or full time? Basic beekeeping knowledge required. Common sense a must.

    Thanks Mike,

    I guess I was under the mistaken impression that it was more common for beekeepers to take on interns or helpers for the purpose of education. I haven't been to Vermont in a couple of years, but the next time I do, I'd love to visit you.
