A cultivation assistant helps the cannabis grow team with the activities of cultivating cannabis in all areas of the grow operation. The cannabis cultivation program is a 20-hour introductory course conducted over three weeks as an online self-paced, instructor-led class, and includes four, one-hour Zoom sessions to allow students to interact with industry professionals and with each other.
This course considers agriculture as a multidisciplinary activity. Both indoor and outdoor growers need to have a knowledge of plants, pests (insect, animal, fungal, bacterial, and viral), the environment, economics, and marketing. Basic language and math skills are a foundation for all of this. Students will read and interpret information on growing great cannabis; review what it takes to become a successful grower; review plant biology, soils, hydroponics, plant health, nutrition, harvesting, trimming, inventory tracking and managing plant waste.
