“We are excited to partner with Green Flower because they provide high-quality training for an in-demand field,” said Kate White, director of Professional and Continuing Education at Cal State East Bay. “California is the nation’s top cannabis market and top cannabis employer. Green Flower’s expertise in the field, innovative curriculum, and commitment to staying up-to-date with industry trends align perfectly with our goal of equipping our regional workforce with the skills and knowledge needed for success in a rapidly evolving job market.”
Starting this fall, Cal State East Bay will offer four certificates, including: The Business of Cannabis, Cannabis Medicine and Healthcare, Cannabis Compliance and Risk Management, and Cannabis Agriculture and Horticulture.
Each certificate program consists of three eight-week courses that can be completed within six months. All courses are fully online and asynchronous with no set meeting times, making it convenient for busy professionals. Throughout the courses, an instructor will guide students through weekly materials, assignments and interactions with their fellow students.
Upon completion, students will receive a digital badge credential from Cal State East Bay and the Green Flower Institute along with access to CareersInCannabis.com, the largest cannabis industry job site, and the Green Flower Institute Employer Network.
“We are very confident that the programs offered by Cal State East Bay will be a great success and extremely helpful,” said Daniel Kalef, chief growth officer at Green Flower. “ The business of cannabis, cannabis medicine and health care, compliance and agriculture are all areas in great need when it comes to training. We applaud and appreciate the commitment of the administration at the university to be a part of the solution and a pathway for opportunity in the cannabis industry in California and beyond.”
