I have found BOTH classes to be very educational. Not so much in the basic beekeeping, as BOTH gave a very good basic account of how to keep bees in an understandable manner. But the difference was in their individual styles and methods. Each recommending a few small things be done in a different manner. One likes something done this way, the other prefers to do the same thing in a different way.
I cannot recommend enough that everyone should attend ANY local classes you can. Presuming you can sit through the things you already know, you will gain a fantastic insight into the method the instructor likes to use. When you see a beekeeping course come up with an instructor you do not know, TAKE IT! Not only do you get to learn about this new instructors methods, you get to meet good people along the way. You will hear ideas you may not have thought of, and you may even find a tidbit of gold that will make keeping your bees easier.
The greatest difficulty I have in taking these classes is keeping my mouth SHUT. There were times I couldn't, and I hope I did not offend either instructor. Both classes covered the same material for beginning beekeepers, but I thoroughly enjoyed the classes, and I did learn things I did not know, and consider it well worth the time and travel.
Is it Spring yet?
