A program designed to train people to fill jobs in the fast-growing cannabis industry is off to a solid start. Extended Studies at UNR partnered with Green Flower to offer four noncredit certificates in cannabis education.
“The Green Flower Higher Education Team is very excited about the interest and growth of the cannabis certificate programs with UNR,” said Daniel Kalef, executive vice president of Higher Education for Green Flower.
“Since our marketing outreach began, we’ve had more than 1,000 students inquire about the programs directly, and more than 30 enroll for either the November or January start dates. We expect to see that number increase through 2022 as more students realize how the programs can help train and guide them into a new career in the legal cannabis industry,” Kalef said.
According to Business Wire, cannabis is the fastest-growing industry in the United States. The 2021 Leafly Jobs Report states that last year, legal cannabis supported 321,000 full-time jobs and is growing faster than any other industry.
