September Core Curriculum – Holyoke Cannabis Education Center

September 4, 2021 - September 5, 2021


The Cannabis Core program is a 12-hour educational program that provides an overview of the cannabis industry in MA and is for people looking for general knowledge as they consider a cannabis career. During four, three-hour sessions, students will interact with cannabis experts and guest speakers in reviews of the plant, various cannabis products, the endocannabinoid system, laws and prohibition, growing and plant care, labeling, packaging, testing, employment considerations, and more.

This is a foundational course and is a prerequisite for the career track courses. It is also a perfect way to differentiate yourself as a candidate for a prospective job, or to prepare you for the next steps in your cannabis business ownership journey!

September 4-5, 2021 classes will be conducted over Zoom.

Students will receive a certificate of hours completed, and will then be eligible to register for a semester course in one of the following career tracks:

  • Cultivation Assistant
  • Extraction Technician
  • Patient Services Associate/Retail/Budtender
  • Culinary Assistant
