i wouldn't dismiss the value of such a course.

a summary of methods that work, followed by a commentary on practical aspects plus email/phone support is probably what a lot of people need.

perhaps we could start up a dedicated section on the forum where practical matters are discussed/mirrored and then a consensus document is posted as a sticky thread???? perhaps a nominated poster could be "assigned" to each "project" to collate the comments or google docs could be used for shared compilation/editing???

eg the recent how to use an apidea mini-nuc thread.

i know it's a bit like the online course thingy but could become part of it.

You will learn something from it. His information may be excellent. Or it may not, in which case you will have a block of knowledge which can act as a foundation for further learning, and which will give you something to compare other sources with. Either way, enjoy it. :)

Why so negative, if someone has not done this before are you saying there is nothing in the DVD that would inform a new beek and at least allow him to ask intelligent questions so that could be answered in here?

Not everyone knows it all and some us would like to learn, not get put down.

I must be losing the plot here.

What DVD?

As for negative. I read about an "online queen rearing course"

This is a freebie. If I teach queen rearing I do it hands on.

Now there is a wee difference there.

"This is a freebie. If I teach queen rearing I do it hands on."

I thought that would be mis read...

try this version:

This is a freebie: if I teach queenrearing I do it hands on.

The word freebie has no connection to your present. None. Good luck with it.
