Representatives of the beekeeping community gladly supported the university’s initiative to resume training in the field of “Beekeeping” at the educational levels of higher education “Bachelor” and “Master” in the specialty 204 “Technology of production and processing of livestock products.”
It was developed a common position on the continuity of education in the field of beekeeping at various levels together with the management of the Hadiach Agrarian School of Poltava region, which is one of the leading professional institutions for the training of beekeepers.
Beekeepers-practitioners and breeders, manufacturers of equipment and inventory, overalls, veterinary drugs, and other products for bees actively responded to the proposal to create together at the university a modern laboratory-practical base for training highly qualified beekeepers.
The largest contribution to the acquisition of laboratory-practical module for keeping and breeding bees today is provided by such companies as “Beenuck”, “Vita”, LLC EM Ukraine, ACE “Melissa-93”, LLC “Dragon-Fly”, “Kennerbee Ukraine”, garment factory “ZhaloStop”, production and trading company “Honey Valley” and others.

An agreement was also reached with experts in the field of joint activities in the direction of training all interested in modern beekeeping technologies.
