What are the benefits of certification?
If you are applying for a job at a dispensary, our hope is that our certification program will give you the advantage in the selection process over someone who has NOT received certification.
Certification shows that you have taken all of our courses and have proved that you have met our standards of knowledge in the cannabis industry.
Once receiving certification from us, you are encouraged to list Oaksterdam University under “special training”. Dispensaries can then call and verify that you are a student in good standing.
