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 Institute To Conduct All Day Seminar in Boca Raton This Saturday To promote Jobs and Business Opportunities In The Growing Cannabis Industry

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.
