Beekeeping and Queen Rearing Training

Hello there,
I have been bee-keeping with on average 10-15 hives for the last 5 years in Burkina Faso. We have been using Kenya Top bar hives. While in the U.S., i attended some general training about splitting hives and rearing queens (in Langstroth hives), but i have no practical experience, especially with top bar hives. Any one know of any higher level beekeeping training like this somewhere in West Africa?

EC’s Beekeeping Collection includes some top bar resources that might be useful

Thank you, i will certainly take a look.

I am interested in bee keeping. I am in Cameroon. Any training program around central or even west Africa. Please notify me.
