Since 2009, CCI has helped hundreds of people start businesses and find jobs growing, selling, manufacturing and servicing the marijuana industry. Medical marijuana dispensary managers, lawyers, doctors and other specialists will be presenting their knowledge and expertise and be available for interviews.

Cannabis is an industry that shows robust promise in the current job market.  It is estimated that job openings in the cannabis industry have grown over 3,000 percent since 2005. Cannabis-related business ownership has also shown massive growth over the last few years.

Eighteen states plus Washington D.C. have medical cannabis laws and two states have legalized the recreational use of cannabis.  Eight additional states have medical laws pending.  During a conference call with state governors on August 29th, Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the US Department of Justice would allow the marijuana legalization laws in Colorado and Washington to go into effect.    This has launched a nationwide conversation about dismantling cannabis prohibition as many marijuana-friendly municipalities, counties and states are now generating enormous amounts of revenue from taxes and business licensing fees.

Since 2009 CCI has specialized in the business of cannabis, 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.

Marijuana Business Training To be Held in Gainesville, Florida this Saturday with Cannabis Career Institute

posted in: | 0


Gainesville, FL (PRWEB) May 16, 2014

Students in Gainesville, Florida are invited to learn about the cannabis industry this Saturday from medical marijuana business training experts with the Cannabis Career Institute.

Students will learn about the industry from instructors who have been involved in the medical marijuana business sectors in California, Washington and Colorado. CCI has been actively teaching medical marijuana business training to entrepreneurs across the country since 2009.

With Florida laws changing rapidly, entrepreneurs are finding that understanding the industry is the first step needed in order to create a successful business. CCI classes provide students the proper knowledge required to get started ahead of potential passage of medical marijuana legalization in Florida.

Polls are showing that an overwhelming majority of Florida residents are in favor of Marijuana as Medicine. Should the state legalize medical marijuana, as expected, a wide variety of business opportunities will emerge and entrepreneurs will need to learn an extensive amount of knowledge to enter the industry. CCI classes provide business training information for the industry, in a very comfortable setting that allows students to learn, network and even request specialized one-on-one consulting from the instructors.

Robert F. Calkin, the founder of Cannabis Career Institute, is a Delivery Specialist who teaches Delivery 101 at Oaksterdam University. He is also the author of “Starting Your Own Medical Marijuana Delivery Service; The Caregivers Handbook”, actively worked with Jack Herer in the American Hemp Council and has been an outspoken activist for Marijuana Legalization across the United States for several decades. Calkin created Cannabis Career Institute in 2009 to help educate individuals on compliance regulations, business implementation, best practices and procedures for the cannabis industry. CCI classes provide information on opening up a medical marijuana dispensary, starting a grow operation for medical marijuana, learning how to set up an edibles operation and how to start a delivery service for medical marijuana patients. Students that attend the all day class are provided with detailed information that allows them to properly organize their business agenda and learn what it will take to make a proper infrastructure work.

The Cannabis Industry as a whole has been called a 600 billion dollar industry and has gathered a lot of interest for expanding cannabis education. With this new industry also comes the potential for new jobs, new business opportunities and a variety of new services. The cannabis industry is expected to come to Florida after November and entrepreneurs need to learn the best way to get involved.

Cannabis Career Institute is welcoming media to the class – outside of the classroom to speak with instructors. For more information on Media Contact Call (800) 753-2240.







Cannabis Career Training Comes to the Nations Capital June 27-28

posted in: | 0

WASHINGTON, DC (PRWEB) April 08, 2015

On June 27-28, 2015, Oaksterdam University – the nation’s only recognized cannabis college – will bring to Washington, DC, the city’s first certified career training program for candidates seeking to enter the legal cannabis industry. The two-day event, to be held at the Capital Hilton located at 1001 16th Street, NW, is sponsored by local cannabis entrepreneur Ben David Sheppard and his portfolio of cannabis companies, MD Canna-Care & Cultivation, House of Jane and Jane’s Brew Gourmet Coffees teas and other fine edibles.

The training will provide participants with the critical information they need to pursue a cannabis career, from opening a dispensary or delivery business, to structuring a legal cannabis entity, understanding their legal rights under the District’s and other states’ laws, bud tending, vending and more. The Washington, DC, certification program is a good testing ground for Oaksterdam as it eyes Washington, DC, as a potential headquarters for its planned East Coast campus.

When the District of Columbia approved Initiative 71 last November, it made possession of marijuana legal in the city. Officials estimate that the local marijuana economy could become $ 130 million annually. And, CannaInsider has estimated that states with legal cannabis laws will create over 200,000 new industry jobs in 2015 alone.

“The District of Columbia has positioned itself as a leader in the legal marijuana movement, and we are proud to bring our deep bench of industry knowledge and experience to help DC’s and other East Coast cannabis industry pioneers grow their careers and emerging businesses,” said Dale Sky Jones, Executive Chancellor of Oaksterdam University. “Congress may throw roadblocks in DC’s way, but legal cannabis, marijuana jobs and opportunities are here to stay.”

“As a business owner who calls Washington home and an owner of House of Jane, a cannabis-infused beverage company geared towards patients, I know how important it is to create an industry that is responsible in its approach and in its commitment to patients and consumers,” said Sheppard. “We’re dedicated to training a workforce that is committed to product quality, health and safety – and that’s why we’ve built a relationship with Oaksterdam University. We want to give Washington, DC, and every state the confidence to support medical marijuana and cannabis legalization.”

To register for the two-day training, please visit http://www.Oaksterdam.com/dcseminar. Space is limited and early bird registration rates end May 31.

Marijuana Business and Education EXPO to Provide Entrepreneur Networking in Las Vegas, June 22nd and 23rd with Marijuana Industry Training by Cannabis Career Institute

posted in: | 0


Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) June 03, 2014

With the U.S. House of Representatives passing an amendment last week restricting the DEA from targeting and raiding medical marijuana operations in states where medical marijuana has been made legal (Steve Benen, Rachel Maddow Show, House votes to restrict DEA marijuana raids, June 30, 2014, MSNBC), entrepreneurs are starting to realize that the cannabis industry has finally started.

For the first time in history, Americans seem to be prepared to dive into this new industry with gusto. Gallup Polls showing 58% of the U.S. population surveyed were reported (Art Swift, Gallup Politics, For First Time, Americans Favor Legalizing Marijuana, October 22, 2013, Gallup.com) as supporting the actual legalization of marijuana in America. This seems to signify, on numbers alone, that the people across the nation are ready to embrace cannabis not only as a medicinal product, but also for recreational use. Business minded people are paving the way to make marijuana and cannabis products the newest and latest trending industry with creative and legal planning.

Entrepreneurs and politicians alike have been watching how Colorado’s state sales and tax revenues (Colorado The Official State Web Portal, Colorado Marijuana Tax Data, 2014-March, colorado.gov) have been playing out. As the Colorado government posts information monthly, with over 18 million dollars in reported revenue on their website, both politicians and entrepreneurs are choosing to expand their horizons by creating new ways to get into the marijuana business sector.

During the last few decades, only those who were considered drug dealers, were able to network or learn much about the industry. Those people were often jailed or ridiculed by society and placed within a stereotypical mold that consisted of tie-dyed “stoner” innuendos and even humorous movies like Cheech and Chong’s “Up In Smoke” (Movie, IMDB database, director Lou Adler, writers Tommy Chong and Cheech Marin, Released September 15, 1978, USA) or comedy skits. However, in today’s world, attorneys, brokers, insurance companies, product distribution companies, agriculture businesses, doctors and educational facilities are becoming the leaders who are making headway. Many of the business representatives in the cannabis industry often have college degrees, dress in business attire and make significant amounts of money by providing medical marijuana, cannabis products or hemp products in states where it has been legislated – or by some involvement in the cannabis business world that facilitates the industry as a whole.

This June, in Las Vegas, the International Cannabis Association will be putting on an Exposition that will not be like other conventional marijuana trade shows. The ICA was founded on the principle of helping interested people explore the idea of getting into the cannabis industry. The Mission goals are to establish a foundation network to help entrepreneurs actually get started by providing significant information, while helping to provide a framework for those people to grow and expand their own businesses by effectively learning, networking and communicating with other business professionals.

Cannabis Career Institute partnered up with the ICA for the educational portion of the EXPO and is expected to teach in-depth classes on topics that cover everything from the history of hemp, extraction processing, medical patient information, the endocannabinoid system – all the way to the legal systems currently in place and marijuana infrastructures for businesses within the United States.

Robert F. Calkin began the Cannabis Career Institute, in 2009, after teaching at Oaksterdam University and operating his own medical marijuana delivery service since 1988, in California. He is the author of a best selling cannabis industry handbook, “Starting Your Own Medical Marijuana Delivery Service: The Mobile Caregiver’s Handbook,” published in 2010 and was one of the original members of the American Hemp Council in 1988 with Jack Herer and Chris Conrad (Cannajobs, Meeting of the Minds PDF uploads, 2011, Seattle). Robert Calkin is one of the main speakers and instructors at the EXPO, where he will provide a wide variety of information to audience participants.

Cannabis Career Institute teaches full day classroom workshop seminars across the nation to students looking to get involved in the cannabis industry and has been noted by many news and media sources across the country. Many of CCI students have reportedly gone on to become successful business owners within the marijuana industry and some have even come back to CCI in order to share their experiences to help teach future students. The main focus of CCI is compliance and education in order to help individuals and businesses achieve the best practices and standards within the industry before government regulation begins.

The International Cannabis Association EXPO, in Las Vegas, Nevada, is expected to bring out thousands of interested people over the two day period.

Several highly anticipated Keynote speakers are on the roster, including: Steve Yastrow (Business advisor and author of “Brand Harmony”, “Ditch the Pitch” and “We: The Ideal Customer Relationship”), Barry Shamis (CEO of the management consulting firm; Selecting Winners and author of bestselling systems like “The Small Business Guide to Recruiting and Hiring Success”), Dan Riffle (Director of Federal Policies, MPP.org), Michale Julian (National Business Investigations, Inc. Security Solutions for the Cannabis Industry), Andy Joseph (Apeks Supercritical), Dean Guske (CPA), Kerry Blasdel (Coloradospringscannabiscenter.com), Dr. Gerry Bedore. PhD, MBA (Cannabis State University, author, Socrates Distance Learning Technology Group co-founder, Researcher, Educator and Horticulturist), Robert Calkin (Green Dot Delivery, Cannabis Consultant, Cannabis State University, Green Cures, Inc. and Cannabis Career Institute), Meki Cox (Marketing, Green Cures, Inc., Standards of Cannabis Business, Networking, Ydek.us, Event Facilitator and Instructor), Matthew Abel (Michigan NORML and Attorney of Cannabis Counsel), Casey Keith (Multiple Sclerosis Medical Marijuana Patient, Entrepreneur Activist and Cannabis Career Institute Instructor), Brian Pearson (Valuation Advisors, LLC), David Hargett (Innovative Extractions Owner and Cannabis Career Institute Instructor), Ryan Hurley (Rose Law Group), Lawrence Mishkin (Silver & Miskin Partner), Anthony Fiacchino (Transporting AeroStar Global Logistics, Inc.) and many more.

The International Cannabis Association EXPO will be focusing heavily on networking and business training, high level education and will include a casual cocktail opening where guests will be able to individually meet and greet with Industry Experts on Sunday evening. Dan Riffle of MPP.org as Director of Federal Policies will be available to speak with guests, NORML executives and speakers will be available to provide detailed information. Political Candidates and Representatives will be on hand to discuss their policies and opinions on the Cannabis Industry.

Monday will host a variety of Keynote Speakers in the Main Hall and also includes a large carefully selected group of cannabis business vendors situated in a very business oriented trade-show arena, where guests are invited to learn about these very successful business vendors in the industry and may ask questions of the vendors, purchase vendor products, discuss consulting projects and more. Vendors currently include such professional selections as THCBiz, MPS International, Green Cures, Inc., Intuitive Websites, Kaercher Insurance, Colorado Springs Cannabis Center, Gardening Unlimited, Innovative Extractions, Bulbulyan Consulting Group, CCI and many more.

For the educational portion guests will be able to choose their own classroom selections based on a first come, first served seating process. Cannabis Career Institute will have six individual rooms based on six different topics, and each class will last approximately one hour. These classroom sessions repeat every hour, so that guests can attend in any order they choose and can partake in each class, or repeat classes as desired. Topics include: The Cannabis Hemp Industry, Extractions, Cannabis – A Medicine, Starting a Cannabis/Hemp Business, Legal Environment and The History of Hemp – which cover a wide variety of information under each topic.

With new businesses entering into the cannabis industry daily, there are many companies that have not yet been seen in the public eye at any other convention or trade-show. The ICA would like to welcome Green Cures, Inc. who will be providing their first public display of products and more. Green Cures, Inc. provides botanical distribution of hemp products and expects to provide future CBD products online.

The ICA would also like to welcome the expected future giant of education, Cannabis State University. The people behind CSU are not new to the cannabis industry, however, this will be the first public viewing and the very first opportunity for the general public to discuss CSU with the founders. Cannabis State University is expected to be one of the first fully accredited college in this sector in the United States. Cannabis State University has a full board of educators (Dr. Gerry Bedore, Jr., Ph.D. MBA, “Online Student Success and Completion Rates”, publication Lambert Academic, 2010) who have detailed experience in quality educational facilities and student programs and CSU boasts plans to implement future degree programs for the medical industry, agriculture industry and business industries.

If you are considering joining the cannabis industry or just need to learn more, the ICA EXPO is one trade-show convention that you will not want to miss. The cannabis industry is, indeed, coming to the United States, if you’re paying attention to the data which appears to be backed by Gallup Polls and opinion. While medical marijuana for those who need it may be the first reason most people choose to get involved, the mass potential for job creation and a fresh influx of financial streams are what will keep this new industry going. Don’t fall behind on this industry, gain the information you need, meet the contacts you’ll be required to have and learn as much as you possibly can by attending this unique EXPO hosted at the Hard Rock Hotel, in Las Vegas on June 22nd and 23rd.

Discount coupons were provided to CCI for members of the Press, CCI students, Family members and friends. Special Code: CCi2014 offers guests $ 300.00 off the general entrance fee and Vendor Discount Code: CCibooth offers businesses a 35% discount on Vendor Booths.

Members of the Press who would like to interview specific members for educational or business information are requested to contact meki(at)cannabiscareerinstitute(dot)com at least three days in advance.

Helping people understand these vibrant, vanguard industries and preparing them to pursue their goals is what we do.”

Researchers from The ArcView Group, a cannabis industry investment and research firm based in Oakland, California, found that the U.S. market for legal cannabis grew 74 percent in 2014 to $ 2.7 billion, up from $ 1.5 billion in 2013.

“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 New York 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.

Also scheduled to speak at the seminar – John Nicolazzo, Principal of Marijuana Doctors (https://www.marijuanadoctors.com/) and Will Kuss, Cannabis Patient and Grow Expert.

Marijauana School Cannabis Career Institute comes to Florida, California and Pennsylvania

posted in: , | 0

(PRWEB) December 07, 2014

The Cannabis Career Institute is teaching eager business entrepreneurs in Florida, Pennsylvania, and California. Classes will be held on December 14th in Orlando at the Sheraton Suites Orlando Airport, Philadelphia at the Clarian Hotel and Conference Center, and San Diego at the California Hampton Inn. Classes run one day from 9-7 with a one-time entry fee that grants access to all classes offered nationally.

In the 2014 fall elections Fox announced Florida missed the 60% needed to pass the medical marijuana program. This does not deter advocates from fighting for legalization nor companies using this time to become established. Pennsylvania is on the waiting list for the legislative vote for medical legalization, however a draft medical marijuana program has been created outlining the basic elements. As seen on NORML’s website California was the first state to legalize medical marijuana in 1996 and looks to legalize recreational use within the next two years.

Instructors cover what it takes to run certain cannabis companies such as dispensaries, growing operations, baking edibles and more. Each class adheres to the state in which it is being taught addressing the unique laws on hemp and cannabis. Following the East Coast Cannabis Expo in New York City CCI has gained more supporters such as Governor Diane Savino who sponsored the event and spoke on the many benefits medical marijuana would provide for the country.

The North Hollywood based Cannabis Career Institute has been teaching thousands of entrepreneurs skills needed to succeed in the marijuana industry. Facilitators with years of experience in the business will teach students the basic start up of a company including marketing, business models and relevant laws and regulations. CCI has spoken to NBC, CBS and Huffington Post among many others about how their classes have spread nationally offering the first seminars of their kind.

CCI continues to expand working with other advocacy groups offering information at classes, conventions, and online. To enroll into the institute there’s a one time all access fee of $ 299 with classes year around nationally.

Burbank, CA (PRWEB) February 12, 2015

This Saturday, February 14th, from 9 am to 7 pm, at the Universal City Hilton, 555 Universal Hollywood Drive, Universal City, CA, Cannabis Career Institute will be hosting a business seminar about the cannabis industry.

Cannabis Career Institute offers state-specific training courses that address a range of topics — from legal requirements and regulations to basic grow techniques. The class will be led by CEO Robert Calkin who will be joined by a variety of marijuana specialists, each of whom will be lecturing on areas of their own cannabis-related expertise.

Last week, an article in Forbes Magazine by Carol Tice suggested that by 2018, legal cannabis business will generate roughly $ 8 Billion in the USA. In the article, Ms. Tice refers to Factbook publisher Cannabusiness Media, that estimated in 2014 there was between $ 1.6 billion and $ 1.9 billion of legal cannabis sold for medical use in the U.S., and another $ 600 million to $ 700 million was sold for legal and recreational use.

“Cannabis revenue trends are only going in one direction and that, of course, is — sky’s-the-limit up,” 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.”
