Cannabis agriculture is a complex but rewarding process. One that takes insightful understanding to achieve successful results. This program provides both novice and experienced growers with the accurate information needed to effectively engage in cannabis production, management, and cultivation.

In the past, cannabis horticulture has been stigmatized, with a lack of industry standards resulting in misinformation. Here, you’ll have access to accurate and informative learnings from expert growers, as you develop a portfolio of work and earn a credible cannabis qualification.

Employment opportunities in this industry are growing. Graduates will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to work as a cultivation technician, production technician, operations assistant, marketing assistant, and sanitation technician.

Students must be 19 years or older.

"The centennial cultivation and processing program was an amazing learning experience. After being in cannabis culture for decades, I still found great value in the content provided by the program. The program is structured well, introducing students to the historical, cultural and legal components of cannabis, before delving deep into cultivation and processing concepts for a comprehensive offering. The program delivers theory and practicality simultaneously, as students participate in internships at licensed commercial cannabis facilities while doing class work. Learning how legal cannabis facilities are operated and the connections developed within that environment were invaluable to me, and I found the instructors and facility staff to be great, friendly and open resources to lean upon. I would highly recommend the Centennial College Cannabis Cultivation and Processing program to anyone searching for greater knowledge about cannabis and the legal cannabis industry."

As Deputy Director of NORML Canada—the nation’s longest-standing cannabis reform advocacy non-profit—I believe it is of utmost importance that relevant, ethical, high standard resources are available in our communities order to create and maintain a healthy cannabis industry.

Employment Opportunities

The emergence of the cannabis industry in Canada is stimulating employment and business development in relation to new products and services. Centennial’s Cannabis Cultivation and Processing certificate program is effectively designed to equip students with the appropriate knowledge and skills to enter an industry in strong demand. This program requires that students work in a legal, ethical and socially responsible manner. Students will garner a theoretical and practical understanding of cannabis law and regulations, the key characteristics of cannabis anatomy and functionality, processing cannabis from seed to sale, creating product formulations, operating specialized cultivation materials and equipment as well as the critical role of quality control/quality assurance throughout the program. Students will be taking courses in a fully online format with practical experience at a licensed cannabis facility, Black Rose Organics. This program ensures students are job-ready for many entry-level positions currently available in one of the fastest emerging sectors in North America.
