Training course beekeepers need to complete
BEEKEEPERS are invited to take part in workshops to assist with online training to help them access and complete the Biosecurity Online Training (BOLT) pest and disease course.
Completing the Plant Health Australia (PHA) BOLT course is a requirement under the Australian Honey Bee Biosecurity Code of Practice for all beekeepers with more than 50 hives.
Assistance with online training is available through a series of upcoming workshops for Victorian beekeepers, including one in Wangaratta on Tuesday, October 17.
The session time will be from 6pm to 9pm with the online course taking approximately 90 minutes to complete.
There is no charge for beekeepers with 50+ hives and a $20 fee for hobby beekeepers.
If you wish to attend contact Jessica Hartland from Agriculture Victoria to register your interest by Thursday, October 12.
