Our historic partnership with Raritan Valley Community College Workforce Training Center started in March 2020 when the medical program in New Jersey was quickly expanding and no other program of this kind existed in the State. Still today, NJ Cannabis Certified, makes unmatched industry expertise available to the public by partnering with local community colleges trying to meet the needs of the populations they serve.
The Workforce Training Center at RVCC is unique in that it works with employers to fill gaps in a particular industry’s training needs. Sarah Trent, the founder of Valley Wellness, a dispensary that hopes to open in Somerset County, turned to RVCC to help build a trained workforce from which the cannabis industry could hire from.
In our quest to connect individuals with job training that is specific to the New Jersey cannabis industry we are proud to announce partnerships with Mercer County Community College and Atlantic Cape Community College where NJ Cannabis Certified will provide the same great programming in the same format.
Valley Wellness is proud to offer free tuition to the first five veterans to sign up for each class offering. We are also working to provide tuition assistance in the form of an apprenticeship program with the United Food and Commercial Workers Union . . .so stay tuned and check back for Summer 2021 Scholarship info.
Thank you to Raritan Valley Community College, we would not be here without you!
