  • What sets Cannabis Training University apart from other cannabis schools?

    With so many online cannabis training programs to choose from, it’s hard to decide which one is right for you! Cannabis Training University sets itself apart in many ways:

    • We were the first. Opened in 2009, Cannabis Training University was the first online cannabis school in the world. That means that for more than a decade, we’ve been developing content and building relationships with the most solid, knowledgeable experts in the cannabis industry.
    • We care about academics. Lots of online marijuana schools exist only to sell certificates. At CTU, our focus is on teaching our students what they need to know to succeed in the cannabis industry instead. That means more content and harder tests, but also graduates with proven skills.
    • We’re the most affordable academic marijuana program. Most online cannabis schools charge the highest price they can get away with. Others are diploma mills, charging a low price for sub-standard content that will gain you a certification but no skills. At CTU, we believe that all students are entitled to affordable, high-quality cannabis education. Because of this, we offer cannabis classes with a wide range of prices, and also offer a payment plan. We do what it takes to make cannabis education affordable for all.
