The expanding cannabis industry is creating a demand for qualified workers with a broad range of skills. To address the critical need for workers in the industry, Syracuse University is partnering with Green Flower to offer non-credit certificates in cannabis education.
Each online program includes three, eight-week fully online courses. Programs will cover the Business of Cannabis, Agriculture and Horticulture, Law and Policy and Healthcare and Medicine. These certificates will complement existing credentials and advance the knowledge and practice of cannabis for professionals across multiple sectors.
"These new market-sensitive certificates represent Syracuse University's role in supporting growth-oriented economic initiatives in New York State," says Michael Frasciello, dean of University College. "Online alternative credentials such as these certificates are designed to meet the growing demand for skills-based careers in emerging fields and sustainability-based industries, particularly among adult learners."
Courses begin June 28 and enrollment is open.
