Cannabis skills are in demand

Cannabis skills are in demand. While the legalization of the cannabis industry is still in progress in Wisconsin, the CBD and hemp industries are continuing to grow. And, the cannabis industry is creating thousands of exciting career opportunities in nearby states and nationally, yet a significant shortage of qualified professionals exists. UW-Platteville now offers the highest quality non-credit university certificates with focused instruction from top experts in the cannabis industry.

Take multiple programs. Save time and money.

When you sign up for multiple cannabis certificate programs, you’ll save 33% on each additional program. All of our cannabis certificate programs begin with the cannabis 101 course. That means for each additional program, you’ll only need to complete two courses, rather than three which will allow you to complete the additional program in 16 weeks rather than 24 weeks.
