The University of Arizona will soon begin to offer Cannabis Certification programs to educate those interested in working in the industry.

The U of A’s Craig Wilson told PBS’s “Arizona Horizon” about the programs, which include courses on the business, healthcare and legal aspects of marijuana.

“As folks are contemplating entering that space, we’re doing what we can to help them with professionalizing the practice, and also to provide professional development for those who might already be in the industry,” said Wilson.

Wilson says the classes will be non-credit, and he recommends that potential students have background knowledge of business, healthcare or law before taking the class.
