Dalhousie University College of Continuing Education, in collaboration with Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU), is excited to announce this gateway into one of Canada's most rapidly evolving industries.

Course Details

The courses will cover Canada’s Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), and is intended for students who want to grow marijuana legally (through the ACMPR)  and be part of the evolving pharmaceutical and medical world that marijuana is currently entering.

The completion of these courses does not grant you a license to legally grow or sell marijuana. You are still required to apply for a license through ACMPR or work with licensed producers. The course prepares you for an introductory perspective to do either task. It will also help you prepare to better understand the application process, standard operating procedures and questions and answers involved. The steps involved to get a license can be a rigorous process and quite lengthy/costly which is another reason the course came about.

Once completing the courses you will receive a statement of completion which you can then use to help distinguish yourself in the marketplace amongst thousands of others wishing to work in the field. You’ll also gain knowledge in the areas mentioned on the course website to help you better understand the industry and how you might want to place yourself in it.

Students in the Cannabis Professional Series can expect competitive insight and additional career-resources.
