Burbank, California (PRWEB) February 06, 2015
Earlier this week, Cannabis Career Institute announced a partnership with the Global Hemp Group (GHG) that will significantly broaden the educational spectrum for CCI students. Specifically, GHG will provide its hemp industry-leading expertise in expanding the CCI curriculum to include coursework on hemp economics, business opportunities, building materials, food & nutrition, cultivation, genetics, processing, and bio-composites.
GHG staff will soon be scheduled to speak at CCI classes on the business of hemp and the entrepreneurial opportunities available in the hemp industry.
“CCI Seminar interest from cannabis-minded businessmen and women all over the country has been tremendous and with our new affiliation with the Global Hemp Group, it will only increase,” said Robert Calkin, CEO and Founder of Cannabis Career Institute. “As both the cannabis and hemp legalization movements continue to envelope the nation, more and more people are seeing the exciting and potentially lucrative business opportunities available. Helping people understand these vibrant, vanguard industries and preparing them to pursue their goals is what we do."
“There is no other industry on the planet right now that is growing as rapidly as the cannabis business,” added Gary Lane, CCI’s Sales and Marketing Director. “If someone is looking for a career in marijuana or wants to learn how the industry works, the one-day CCI workshop is an excellent primer. Not only does one receive valuable instruction and information but what also usually happens is a “class-bonding” dynamic.
More often than not, students of each of the classes form their own networking and support group that turns into a valuable and life-long resource.”
Cannabis Career Institute specializes in teaching would-be entrepreneurs how to navigate the often-murky waters of starting up a cannabis business.
CCI presents students with an objective expanse of options with step-by-step instruction on the process of starting a business. Delivery, Dispensary Management, Law, Compliance, Marketing and Advertising, Cultivation, Extracts and Cooking are all discussed in detail, providing students with many choices to fit their career goals and lifestyle.
Cost for the one day seminar, that also allows for students to attend any future class for free, is $349 and includes a seminar manual. CCI is scheduled to return to Boca Raton on Saturday, April 11.
As seen on CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, the Huffington Post, and more, Cannabis Career Institute was the first cannabis seminar training program ever offered and is the most successful of its kind.
