Cannabis skills are in demand

Cannabis skills are in demand. The cannabis industry is creating thousands of exciting career opportunities in Colorado, and nationally, yet a significant shortage of qualified professionals exists. The University of Denver now offers high-quality non-credit university certificates with focused instruction from top experts in the cannabis industry.

Take multiple certificates. Save time and money.

When you sign up for multiple cannabis certificate programs, you’ll save 33% on each additional program. All of our cannabis certificate programs begin with the cannabis 101 course. That means for each additional program, you’ll only need to complete two courses, rather than three which will allow you to complete the additional program in 16 weeks rather than 24 weeks.
