**In the context of COVID 19 we have made several changes to the structure of the course toward the goal of maintaining a quality educational experience that is enriching and interactive. Normally this course is offered in person at Miel Montreal's office but we will instead be offering this course online using ZOOM.
Over the last couple of years we have been building up a library of photos and videos that have been integrated into the online version of the course. This platform also allows us to maintain good interaction among the trainers and participants ! Perfect occasion to learn about the wonderful world of beekeeping while remaining at home !
