Cannabis Retail Specialist Program | $3990

Course Overview:

The cannabis industry is poised for explosive growth.  Start your career here! 

Our 26-week program is designed to provide participants with training for employment in the emerging cannabis industry and to prepare retail workers to effectively serve and educate their customers.

During this program you will study plant anatomy and physiology, the chemical components, strain characteristics, and potential medicinal applications of cannabis as well as regulatory requirements, preparation techniques and methods of administration, along with human physiology and nutrition.

A 40-hour practicum placement is a component of this program.  Placements can be arranged in the student's area of residence and, in most circumstances, will not require travel. While instructors assistance is available, please note that it is ultimately the student's responsibility to secure their practicum placement.


Photo identification confirming age of majority for your province of residence must be provided.

Cost notes:

Required textbooks TBD.
