Seneca meets budding demand for cannabis experts

May 7, 2019

Seneca College has launched a one-year graduate certificate in cannabis regulation and quality assurance. A release states that the program will focus on plant physiology, pharmacology, cultivation, manufacturing processes, and distribution. Students will also learn about financial metrics to work within budgets, develop technique to adapt business practices that meet the changing market and economic needs, and interpret chemical, environmental and physiological data to assess crop health and quality, adds Seneca. “The market is growing and industry professionals with specialized training in regulatory affairs are in high demand, especially now that people can legally purchase marijuana at retail stores,” said Paola Battiston, Chair of Seneca’s School of Biological Sciences and Applied Chemistry. Seneca (ON)
