FINDING A PROGRAM

A representative from a California Community College that offers courses in your specified industry will reach out.
GET PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Hemp has exploded into a multi-billion-dollar industry and is expected to experience continuous growth. However, as seen in many other industry sectors, cannabis producers and retailers face labor shortages. They also have complex needs, questions and concerns about attracting, training, developing and up-skilling their employees' skills. One of the key priorities for the Regional Directors, Employer Engagement for the Bay Region is the creation of a cross-sector initiative between three sectors: Agriculture, Water & Environmental Technologies, Entrepreneurship and Business, and Retail, Hospitality, and Tourism that is focusing on workforce development to support these industries.
Region specific tours are being planned to provide CA Community College Administrators and faculty members a professional development opportunity to learn more about the legal cannabis and industrial hemp industries. Guided tours will be offered to demystify the industry and will include industry visits to gain an understanding of the manufacturing, cultivation, retail, marketing and logistics side of the responsible cannabis and industrial hemp industries.
