ACI weekend seminars feature two intensive days of learning and are offered only 2-3 times per calendar year. If you’re looking to be one of the first marijuana business license holders in Alaska… this is the course for you. Attendees will receive 12+ hours of live instruction from 10 different industry leaders coming from Washington, Colorado, Oregon, and Alaska. In addition to live access to industry leaders, each attendee will take home a 100+ page course packet which includes: slides from all presenters, copy of the state application, mock operating plan, business plan complete with example costs, checklists, and step-by-step guide on how to move forward.

The cannabis economy is a knowledge-based economy driven by skills, talent, experience and expertise of workers and professionals. The sudden demand for labor within the cannabis economy is creating a widening gap between the skills and experience workers have and job requirements. Even in Colorado and Washington, more than 71% of cannabis employers say they are having difficulty finding quality workers.

The cannabis industry needs a quality educated workforce. The Alaska Cannabis Institute will address this issue by providing cannabis certificates for students who are looking to earn a living within the cannabis economy. The Alaska Cannabis Institute accommodates working adults with busy life and work schedules.

Earning a certificate from the Alaska Cannabis Institute means you will be more competitive in the cannabis workplace.

The Alaska Cannabis Institute is a great place to start if you want to own a cultivation center, processing center, and retail shop; or you just want to learn how to grow for personal use.
