Loyalist launches Cannabis Career Launch micro-credential pilot program

February 10, 2021
Loyalist College has launched a Cannabis Career Launch micro-credential pilot program. Students in the program are prepared for entry-level careers in the cannabis sector through hands-on training and a paid two-week placement in the industry. The program, which is partially funded by the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development, is free for students. “[I]ndividuals will learn about quality control and cannabis legislations and regulations. They will quickly earn the skills for which local small and medium-sized enterprises are looking to bring cannabis 2.0 products to market,” said Loyalist President Dr Ann Marie Vaughan. “Together, we will position program participants for success as they pursue careers in cannabis, helping to address significant skills gaps in this burgeoning sector.” Loyalist (ON)
