Oaksterdam University Certification Program
Oaksterdam University offers certification to students who pass their final exams with a 75% or higher. Certification is only a requirement for students who would like to use Oaksterdam University as a reference for employment. If you are not interested in employment with a dispensary or other cannabis related business, you are perfectly welcome to take our classes for your personal enrichment.
There are two levels of certification at Oaksterdam University:
1) Semester Certification (Highest level) and 2) Seminar Certification
Why is the semester certification a higher level of certification?
1) Semester students have demonstrated the dedication to come back to class for several consecutive weeks.
2) Semester students have a higher and verifiable rate of comprehension through homework assignments and mid-term examinations.
Oaksterdam University does recognize that not everyone has the time/money required for the semester class, nor is everyone able to meet in Oakland for several consecutive weeks. This is why we offer the weekend seminar certification.
What does receiving certification get me?
Whichever route you choose to follow, assuming you pass our final examination and meet our attendance requirements, you can begin listing Oaksterdam University in your "special skills or training" section of your resume. You can use our main phone number (510) 251-1544 and dispensaries you are applying to are free to call us and verify that you are a student in good standing.
