An American institution concerned with providing state-specific education for newcomers to the cannabis industry has now launched a series of online courses it claims will cover all of the essentials.
On Wednesday, the Cannabis Community College (CCC) announced the debut of its Cannabis Essentials curriculum.
The organization says that its courses are designed to ensure students are equipped with the proper knowledge and technical skills to succeed in a variety of industry settings.

The CCC was founded in 2020 when the cannabis industry was continuing to expand despite the hardships of the pandemic and its impact on many other industries. Although the courses taught by the institution are currently specific to the U.S. the organization is currently in the process of translating its courses into multiple other languages and plans to eventually offer its digital education in over 30 countries.
“We are kicking off the updated platform by showcasing our 5 Course Bundle titled ‘Cannabis Essentials’ which was developed by some of the top names from several of the largest public and privately held, vertically integrated, multistate operators in the country,” said Christi McAdams, CCC Chairman.
“We did this specifically for two reasons: first, to provide leverage to job seekers applying in a highly competitive market where a single job post easily produces hundreds of applicants, and second, to offer employers a simple and streamlined way to train newly hired staff.”
The new five-part curriculum will contain a Compliance Essentials, Cultivation Essentials, Dispensary Essentials and Production Essentials section followed by a concluding “Cultivating a Cannabis Career” course.
The course bundle will cost US$270 with payment plans and scholarships available.
