About our Cannabis Courses

Legal cannabis production is evolving and there is so much more to it than just growing and trimming plants. Licensed producers grow million dollar crops that are at risk of failure if production workers do not understand the plant and Health Canada protocols! The Cannabis Trimming & Production course covers not only the practical skills of cannabis production, but the knowledge you need to start a successful, fast growing career. Topics covered include: the history of prohibition, sanitation and security protocols, the science behind the plant, medicinal use of cannabis, and much more. The last module of the course includes career highlight interviews from a licensed producer to help learners understand just how big this opportunity is, and how many different people it applies to!

The digital learner manual that comes with the online course has tips and information on how to successfully apply for a job in the cannabis industry. Learners who complete the online course can apply to participate in on-site training at a local licensed cultivator. The on-site training allows learners to apply their skills and utilize real world processes while learning about different job roles and what it takes to be successful.
