Here’s what they’ve just punched out to the interweb on the topic..


This week saw two prominent community colleges in Oregon (Columbia Gorge Community College) and Illinois (Black Hawk College) launch cannabis certificate programs with Green Flower.

“Now that cannabis cultivation has become part of our region’s economy, we need to provide essential skills not only for new entrepreneurs but for consumers and anyone whose careers intersect with the cannabis industry,” said Dr. Marta Yera Cronin, CGCC president

In both instances, the schools are each offering 8-week, 100% online certificate programs for Advanced Manufacturing Agent, Dispensary Associate, and Cultivation Technician tracks.

“The cannabis industry is creating many career opportunities in Illinois. These programs will give students the knowledge needed to work in this rapidly expanding industry,” said Barb Courville, Associate Dean of Adult and Continuing Education at Black Hawk College.
