Back by demand, Mercer County Community College (MCCC) is offering the Cannabis Certification course developed by Valley Wellness CEO Sarah Trent. New Jersey Cannabis Certified will begin on May 3, 2021 and we are proud to announce that the New Jersey Cannabis Trade Association (“NJCTA”) will be providing six scholarships to individuals who meet demonstrated financial need and live within certain zip codes.
NJ Cannabis Certified is one of the premier cannabis education courses in the state that is designed to train individuals for entry level jobs in the industry.
According to Trent, who developed the course and leads the class, “we saw high enrollment in our 2020 class offerings, but we also saw that some people need financial assistance, so we started looking for sponsors to help create scholarships. The NJCTA was excited to get involved and help develop a plan to make sure those most in need of jobs, who live near existing cannabis operators in the state, had access to job training.”
