Raritan Valley Community College, in partnership with Sarah Trent, CEO of Valley Wellness, is offering an online New Jersey Medical Cannabis Dispensary Training course. Classes will be held Monday evenings, June 1-29, from 6-9 p.m., via RVCC’s online platforms: Zoom and Canvas. The program offers comprehensive education and training in multiple aspects of the emerging cannabis industry.
The program’s initial class—which moved to an online platform due to the COVID-19 pandemic—was highly successful and featured sold-out enrollment. The course does not require completion of any prerequisites, and participants do not have to be enrolled at the College to take the class.
According to attorney Sarah Trent, who developed the program and leads the class, “We present the information needed to effectively work in the highly regulated medical cannabis industry, and specifically in a dispensary. A20, the law that expanded the medical marijuana program in New Jersey, specifically describes the training that the legislature mandated for all Alternative Treatment Center workers, and this class endeavors to provide that training. We cover the topics that are listed in the law and more. And those topics are each covered by experts in their field.”
