Individuals can apply for the program from through July 7. The program is slated to start in the mid-August to September time period.
The 12-week program will cover multiple aspects of functioning in a retail environment, with participants receiving mentorship and training from experienced professionals in the cannabis industry. They will also have the opportunity to work alongside other apprentices, gaining valuable experience and building a network of contacts in the industry.
“A retail cannabis apprenticeship program is crucial in providing individuals with the necessary skills and experience to succeed in this rapidly growing industry. It not only benefits the apprentices, but also helps ensure a highly skilled and trained workforce for the future of the cannabis retail sector,” Freddy Herrera, cannabis apprentice coordinator, UFCW Local 360, said.
