Our Microscopy exam, module 9, is open for registration now. This exam will be held on Saturday 9th of March 2024 in Strathbrock Community Centre, Broxburn, EH52 5LH. To register please click here. Deadline for registration is Saturday the 10th of February.

This examination lasts 3 hours and the candidate will need to provide suitable
microscopes and equipment necessary to complete the examination. 

The candidate’s knowledge and skill will be put to the test through a series of practical tasks along with an oral examination. Please study the Microscopy Syllabus (Issue April 2022) available here

A pass in the Microscopy Certificate gives the candidate exemption from the Adult Bee Diseases section of the Scottish Apiarian Examination.

Applicants must be members of the SBA and have passed their Basic Beekeeping or Junior Beekeeper exams. It is also advisable that you should have attended an SBA two-day microscopy workshop. We encourage as many as possible of those who attended the Microscopy workshop last year to apply for the exam. The exam fee is £55.
