Our historic partnership with Raritan Valley Community College Workforce Training Center “RVCC ” started in March 2020 when the first class launched in person at the College but then quickly moved to Zoom due to Covid-19. Students and teachers adapted quickly! The class will continue to run on Zoom indefinitely.
The Workforce Training Center at RVCC is unique in that it works with employers to fill gaps in a particular industry’s training needs. Sarah Trent, the founder of Valley Wellness, a dispensary that hopes to open in Somerset County, turned to RVCC to help build a trained workforce from which the cannabis industry could hire from.
Valley Wellness is proud to offer free tuition to the first five veterans to sign up for each class offering. We are also working to provide tuition assistance in the form of an apprenticeship program with the United Food and Commercial Workers Union . . .so stay tuned and check back for Summer 2021 Scholarship info.
In our quest to connect the industry to higher education, we are proud to announce our new partnership with Mercer County Community College where NJ Cannabis Certified will provide the same great programming in the same format.
Thank you to Raritan Valley Community College, we would not be here without you!
Welcome Mercer County Community College!
