Be a beekeeper
Apiculture is one of New Zealand’s fastest growing industries and there is such high demand for this skill that it is listed on Immigration NZ’s Immediate Skills Shortage List.
Our brand new certificate will enable you to work as an assistant beekeeper for commercial operators, as an independent beekeeper with a small number of beehives or to even develop your own business.
Location: Central Otago, Dunedin, Christchurch | Start: October | Delivery: Part-time
