IL Triton College rolls out new cannabis cultivation course

Triton College students will have the opportunity to learn how to grow, care and manage cannabis plants through a new course this fall. The course – aptly named cannabis cultivation – is folded into the college’s greenhouse grow operations certificate program where students can learn about the cultivation of cannabis plants, which can be used for recreational and medicinal purposes, as well as high-value crops and ornamental plants.

The certificate program, which can be completed in five classes or two semesters, allows students to understand the cannabis industry and production of urban food products or tropical and herbaceous plants, and what career paths are available.

In January, Leafly, a Seattle, Washington-based company, reported that legal cannabis was supported by 428,059 full-time jobs, which ranged from retail sales to legal affairs, construction and even public relations.
