Biosecurity for Beekeepers – provides advice on keeping honey bees healthy using industry best practice

NOTE: If you are a registered beekeeper you will need a token to do this course for free. If you don’t have a token you will need to pay $20 (or $40 if you are overseas). Once you are on the login page for the Biosecurity for Beekeepers course, there are a few simple steps to enrol, and then you will be able to access and complete the course. If you need more help, a step by step guide to get started is available in the Biosecurity for Beekeepers fact sheet.


Access to BOLT is free and available to anyone with an interest in biosecurity.
