Press Release: Community College of Rhode Island (CCRI) announces eight-week Cannabis Training Program through the Division of Workforce Partnerships.

The Community College of Rhode Island (CCRI) announced Wednesday that is launching its eight-week Cannabis Training Program through the Division of Workforce Partnerships.

Citing jobs in the cannabis industry “nearly doubling in Rhode Island between 2022 and 2023,” CCRI’s free 45-hour training program, funded by the Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training’s Real Jobs RI initiative, begins Tuesday, July 9 at CCRI’s Liston Campus in Providence.

Classes are conducted online and in person with curriculum taught by industry experts to provide students with a foundational knowledge of the entry-level jobs in the industry, the skills they need, and the applicable regulations. Participants can also visit local businesses and receive employment assistance.

The pilot cohort program will enroll fifteen students. Those interested can sign up for an interview by filling out the program inquiry form at ccri.edu/cannabisindustry.

“CCRI’s Division of Workforce Partnerships is always looking to be responsive to employer needs and we are proud and excited to create a training for this emerging industry,” said Division of Workforce Partnerships Vice President Jennie Johnson. “We look forward to having a hand in creating a robust cannabis workforce.”
