The Beginner Bee Venom Collection Training Course is intended to provide basic knowledge and hands on skills for bee venom collection. Participants will become familiar with the theoretical and practical aspects of venom collection as well safety for the collector and the environment. There will be an updating on marketing strategies of raw material and new trends for product development. At the end of the course participants will be able to answer the challenge and add extra value to their beekeeping or bee venom related activities.
Those acutely interested in bee venom collection will be most interested as well as those who have a basic knowledge of beekeeping who wish to expand their knowledge of this fascinating activity. Most likely participants would include: beekeepers, students and instructors of beekeeper training schools, beehive product developers, researchers, apitherapists, veterinarian students and instructors, homeopathic remedy manufacturers, general practitioners, naturopaths and other health care practitioners.
The number of participants is limited to the available space around our exhibition booth #F13 at the ApiExpo 2005 in Dublin, Ireland.
The FREE Bee Venom Collection Course will be held each day during the ApiExpo 2005 at 13:00h at our exhibition booth #F13 between August 22nd, 2005 to August 25th, 2005.
We will auction two of our bee venom collector devices just after the Bee Venom Collection Course; one on Tuesday and one on Thursday. You can win and take home a $350.00USD, or a $550.00USD collector device for as little as Eur 20.00, the cost of a ticket. Tickets can be purchased at booth #F13.

Participants will obtain the greatest benefit if they have an understanding of the basic terminology of beekeeping and some practical experience as a beekeeper. Participants with no previous beekeeping experience may attend the Course, but it is recommended they read up on primary beekeeping.
During the ApiExpo 2005 and the Course, participants will have the opportunity to see components that make up a collector device, operate a Bee Venom Collector Simulator that is based on the VC-6F semi-commercial collector device, measure and compare different output parameters and output load of a device displayed on a large LCD display that is connected to an oscilloscope, listen the sound of bees when exposed to electrical shock stimulation, view safety equipment and bee venom products.
All participants are encouraged and free to take notes, photos, digital pictures and videos during the ApiExpo 2005 and the Bee Venom Collection Course at our booth #F13.
