What Our Students Say

Harold Funder, a Los Angeles resident, said, “I enrolled at Cannabis Training University to learn how to grow cannabis indoors and do cannabis extractions. My buddy got a job as a budtender with his CTU certificate, and I also hope to do the same. I love the online classes at CTU, and it is very affordable.”

Steven Price from San Diego said, “Getting CTU certified was well worth the money. I was able to get a job as a cannabis extraction technician and am grateful for my CTU education.”

There are over 300,000 jobs in the cannabis industry. CTU trained me for one of them!
