DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cannabis Training University, the leading online cannabis training provider since 2009, reports a dramatic increase in course enrollments since the COVID pandemic began in March. April, May, and June saw year-over-year enrollments more than double. The trend is holding strong and suggests quickly changing attitudes around the cannabis industry and a willingness for people to invest in job training during economic uncertainty.
“We’ve seen a huge influx of new students wanting to learn how to become budtenders, open cannabis businesses, and make cannabis products for resale,” says Jeff Zorn, founder and CEO at Cannabis Training University. “One of the trickiest parts of looking for work or creating jobs in the cannabis industry is keeping up to date on the changing federal, state or province-specific legislation, especially in the U.S. We’re working very hard behind the scenes to meet the increased demand from students and update our course content as things change.”
Some of the topics CTU has seen increased interest in are:
- Cannabis cultivation and horticulture
- Working with edibles for chefs and infused product manufacturers
- How to open and run a dispensary
- How to become a budtender
“It’s inspiring to see people take control of their futures, pursue, or create careers they believe in, and educate themselves to better prepare for whatever comes next,” says Karen Getchell, director of course content development at Cannabis Training University. “We expect this trend to continue and we want to support everyone as much as possible.”
Cannabis Training University also covers topics related to personal and recreational use and subjects surrounding medical applications for students where laws allow. To learn more about Cannabis Training University, visit CannabisTrainingUniversity.com.
