Baker College Launches Cannabis Certificate Programs to Meet Demand for Educated Workforce

Baker College is expanding its educational offerings to address the growing cannabis industry in Michigan. The college has partnered with Green Flower, a leader in cannabis education, to offer three new cannabis certificate programs.

These non-credit programs are designed to provide individuals with the skills and knowledge needed for various cannabis careers, including cultivation, manufacturing, and retail sales. Michigan’s thriving cannabis market, with sales exceeding $3 billion in 2023, has created a significant demand for qualified workers.

“Baker College is committed to providing opportunities for success in emerging industries,” said Dr. Jacqui Spicer, President and CEO. “Our partnership with Green Flower ensures students receive high-quality education to excel in this fast-paced field.”

Each online certificate program takes nine weeks to complete. Registration is currently open, with a special discount available until June 17th. Graduates will gain access to Green Flower’s employer network upon completion.

“This collaboration highlights Baker College’s dedication to innovation and accessible education,” said Daniel Kalef, Green Flower Chief Growth Officer. “These programs address the critical need for skilled professionals in the Michigan cannabis industry.”

The curriculum will cover various areas, including cultivation techniques, product development, quality control, and patient care. By equipping graduates with this expertise, Baker College and Green Flower aim to ensure the sustainable growth of the cannabis industry and prepare a well-trained workforce for its future.
