Testing for bee venom allergies before my honey wings it as a beekeeper

My significant other has decided to become a beekeeper. We're both buzzing with excitement--the hive arrives next week. He doesn't think he's ever been stung by a honey bee before, and he can't recall having any adverse reactions, but we've heard that allergies can change/worsen with age. I'd like to avoid discovering that one of us is severely allergic after the fact. What is the easiest/fastest/cheapest way to get tested? Are there direct-to-consumer tests that you'd recommend, or are we stuck making an appointment with an allergist?
