WHAT IS THE REGISTRATION DEADLINE?
Students may register up to 7 days, after the start date. To register past that date, please contact us to see if we can accommodate your request.
ARE NORTHWEST’S CANNABIS CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS DESIGNED FOR STUDENTS TO WORK AT THEIR OWN PACE?

Each certificate consists of three eight-week courses. The certificate takes approximately six months in total to complete.

Students should expect to dedicate 8-15 hours per week to adequately interact and complete coursework in the certificate programs.
