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.”
Cannabis Career Institute specializes in teaching would-be entrepreneurs how to navigate the often-murky waters of getting into and/or 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 Los Angeles on Saturday, March 14, 2015.
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.
