Cannabis Community College launched its new online training platform, with courses taught by industry experts. Students can take courses and earn certification on their own terms with every course recording available on demand. The platform also enables market thought leaders from around the world to promote and sell their knowledge on a highly sophisticated and fully automated back-end system.
The Cannabis Community College was specifically developed for job seekers, employees, and cannabis industry enthusiasts. The platform teaches each legal state’s educational requirements to work in a licensed marijuana establishment, including state-specific compliance, standard operating procedures, and many essential courses developed to ensure students are properly trained with the knowledge and technical skills necessary to work in a variety of settings.
“We’re kicking off the updated platform by introducing our 5-course bundle titled ‘Cannabis Essentials’ which was developed by some of the biggest names from many of the nation’s largest public and private, vertically-integrated, multi-state operators. “, said Christi McAdamsChairman of the CCC.
“We did this specifically for two reasons: first, to give leverage to job seekers applying in a highly competitive market where a single job position easily produces hundreds of applicants, and second, to provide employers with a simple and streamlined way to train newly hired staff.”
The Cannabis Essentials 5 course bundle includes the following courses:
The state-specific Compliance Essentials course, taught by industry experts, Nova Cobblestone and Conor Gorman and advised by Pieter Hoolboom and Mark Kimble.
The Culture Essentials course taught by a master grower, Evan Marder
The Dispensary Essentials course taught by the dispensary owner, Brenda Gunsallus
The Production Essentials course taught by a lead extraction technician, Jordan Annalora of body and mind BMMJ
The Cultivating A Cannabis Career course delivered by the Human Resources Manager, Bryan Olson
In an effort to lower barriers to entry, Cannabis Community College is offering its Cannabis Essentials 5 set of courses to individuals for an introductory fee of $270, a fraction of the cost of traditional higher education. Payment plans and scholarships are available.
Cannabis Community College students and graduates also have access to their online community, various clubs such as the Global Cannabis Industry Networking Group, and live educational webinars. They can also participate in the Cannabis Intern Project, which helps place students in approved institutions across the country.
