**** Installment Payment Option Also Available ****

Cannabis agriculture is a complex but rewarding process. One that takes insightful understanding to achieve successful results. This program provides both novice and experienced growers with the accurate information needed to effectively engage in medicinal cannabis production, management, and cultivation.

 

In the past, cannabis horticulture has been stigmatized, with a lack of industry standards resulting in misinformation. Florida’s cannabis growers need employees with skills earned through accurate and innovative learnings from expert growers.

 

In six months, you’ll learn how to care for cannabis plants, study botany and genetics, and explore plant growth techniques. As you gain experience, you’ll elect to specialize in the indoor or outdoor grow track with immersive and experiential learning opportunities to work hands-on with hemp or dioecious plants. All while you develop a portfolio of work and earn a credible qualification.
