Langstroth Training Program

It would be difficult to find in Ghana beekeeping training program circles, a format as well rounded and professional as can be found  at Extra Mile West Africa’s  beekeeper training facility . With (EMWA) you will learn modern beekeeping techniques  using the “Langstroth” beehive method of beekeeping. Under the directorship of Viyada Enterprise, a fully equipped Beekeeping School was constructed in 2008 in the small town of Nkwanta, Oti District. The original “beehive pilot” project was upgraded to a full-fledged training package in mid-2009.

The construction of a modern honey processing and beekeeping training center was completed in 2012. At this center practical demonstrations on Langstroth Beekeeping were conducted. The program became so successful that by 2017-2018 it was decided to construct a Beekeeping Training School adjacent to the processing center. Presently the school offers a certificate course in practical and theory Langstroth Beekeeping.
