The agreement will encompass educational, training, culinary and research opportunities, along with guest lecturers and internship opportunities in the cannabis field. The programs will commence during the Spring 2019 semester.
“As we move closer to legalization, ensuring our future leaders are well trained and educated on the business of cannabis will be critical,” said Scott Rudder, President the NJCBA. “Atlantic Cape Community College is taking a great step forward in that direction. Their unique ability to offer traditional classroom and online instruction as well as hands-on applications through their culinary program is especially exciting. We look forward to beginning this collaboration with them.”
“Atlantic Cape is uniquely positioned to provide training and educational opportunities in this emerging field,” Atlantic Cape President Dr. Barbara Gaba said. “As job opportunities expand, this agreement with NJCBA will allow us to support those seeking employment in a variety of positions within this industry.”
