Connecting Education to Careers

Nick Ernst, a graduate from our Cannabis Professional Series program, describes his experience:

"The program was in depth and well organized. The instructors were knowledgeable and available throughout the program. Upon graduating I interviewed with several licensed producers, all lead to job offers. "

Peter Carscadden, Director of Business Development, Lift Cannabis Co., "I took Introduction to Access to Marijuana for Medical Purposes [now called Cannabis Professional Series] at KPU because I saw what cannabis is able to do for patients and the uphill battle that the industry faced and I was passionate about making a difference. KPU helped me dive head first into a constantly evolving industry. I now work for a cannabis communications company and advocate for patients in a way I never thought possible."
