Cannabis Training Canada Inc. (CTC), an e-learning provider for cannabis retailers, announced a partnership with the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation (NSLC) to provide an in-depth product knowledge education program to NSLC cannabis staff.

The company claims the program, named Advanced Product Knowledge Program, to be “the most comprehensive cannabis retail training program of its kind in Canada.” It will be used as “next level education” for employees who have completed NSLC’s Retail Certification Program and is primarily focused on Cannabis 2.0 and 3.0 products. The course is taken online and divided into 8 modules each with specific learning objectives and topics.

“We are thrilled to deliver a new level of cannabis education to the NSLC and are also excited about what it means for the industry,” said Zane Yassein, CTC co-founder. “It signifies a new level of market maturity in cannabis that is demanding a more educated workforce to effectively distribute products to a more informed consumer. As new products continue to hit the market and other scientific breakthroughs push the cannabis industry forward, these types of elevated education programs will become more important for retail staff. CTC is proud to be a part of this market maturity and to be expanding our expertise in cannabis education.”

The NSLC Retail Certification Program was custom-made by CTC and covers the basics of cannabis, cannabis-derived products, and responsible cannabis distribution. The Advanced Product Knowledge Program is meant to build on that foundation and teach staff to confidently discuss new and emerging product formats, how exactly they are manufactured, and the Canadian cannabis industry as a whole.
