Pennsylvania Community College Adds Cannabis Programs to Meet Workforce Demands

To meet the continuing growth of the cannabis industry, HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, has added three new certificate programs that will provide job skills training for those interested in a cannabis career.

HACC is partnering with Green Flower, an on-demand training platform built for cannabis professionals, to provide the programs.

The eight-week, fully online programs include Advanced Dispensary Associate Skills Training, Cannabis Manufacturing Agent and Cultivation Technician. Graduates will receive certificates of completion from HACC and Green Flower. In addition, graduates will have access to Green Flower’s employer network.

“As demand continues to grow for an educated workforce in the cannabis industry in Pennsylvania and across the country, HACC is responding to the need by contracting with Green Flower to give our students opportunities to qualify for entry-level jobs,” said Vic Rodgers, MBA, HACC’s vice president of workforce development and continuing education.

“Green Flower is honored to be partnering with HACC to offer our three cannabis industry training courses. As Pennsylvania’s first community college and one of its largest, their history and commitment to help working adults find and build new careers is second to none,” said Daniel Kalef, Green Flower vice president of higher education.

Students can register for each self-directed cannabis program to fit their schedules. For more information about the programs, please visit cannabiseducation.hacc.edu.
