Minor Core Credit Requirements– A Certified Level Beekeeper must complete 3 minor credits in order to
progress to the Journeyman Level. To achieve the Master Beekeeper certification, a Journeyman Beekeeper
must document completion of 5 additional minor credits outside their major before they can be considered for
advancement to the Master Beekeeper Level. Master Beekeepers must complete an additional 8 minor core
credits for a grand total of 16 minor core credits to qualify for the Master Craftsman Level. You may choose any of the following credits below not in your declared major to fulfill this requirement. In addition to this, you may choose credits from other majors (other than those that may also be listed in your declared major) APPENDIX C Major Core Credit Requirements to fulfill your minor core credits. (i.e.: some activities may be listed in multiple majors. If an activity is listed in your declared major, you may not use that activity to satisfy a core credit even though it may be listed under another major). Also, you may not use activities used previously for PSCs for Major/Minor Core Credits. Please contact the MBP Committee if clarification is needed. You may use the Major/Core Credit Form to assist in your documentation – see APPENDIX J PROGRAM FORMS. All credits are to be submitted PRIOR to testing.
Note: Other documentation may be considered but we recommend that you consult the MBP Director prior to
undertaking an event not on the above list.
