Cleveland School of Cannabis Receives State Approval

The Cleveland School of Cannabis, formally known as Cleveland Cannabis College, has received approval from the Ohio Board of Career Colleges and Schools – making them the first school east of Colorado with state-approved career programs.

The board approved all four programs by the school – Cannabis Business, Cannabis Horticulture, Medical Applications of Cannabis, and Cannabis Executive –  contingent upon an occupancy permit from the city, which is expected this week. The certificates offered by the school are considered the same level as an accounting certificate, real estate certificate, paralegal certificate, among others.

“As an educational facility that is working to advance the study and understanding of cannabis in our country today, we are incredibly honored to be the second state approved institution in the country right now.” – Richard Pine, dean of recruitment and public relations, in a press release

Registration for classes at the school are ongoing with courses expected to begin next month. The state-approved certificate programs run from $6,500 to $12,500. Program hours range from 136 to 266.5. Single courses are also available, as well as state-required classes for physicians and dispensary owners and employees. Pine indicated that the state’s cannabis industry is expected to create more than 4,000 jobs.
