Medicinal Cannabis Cultivation Training Courses

Courses: Medicinal Cannabis Cultivation Courses including Regulatory Requirements

Our medicinal cannabis cultivation training courses are designed for cultivators and manufacturers based in Australia, New Zealand or Southern Africa (South Africa, Lesotho, Zimbabwe and surrounds). These medicinal cannabis training sessions can assist companies to navigate regulatory compliance requirements and other complexities of cannabis cultivation operations.

The considerable regulatory burden in medicinal cannabis cultivation and production can be a challenge for companies, even organisations with considerable international cultivation and manufacturing experience. That’s because the cultivation techniques and regulatory systems are very different compared to those cultivation systems most operators are accustomed to, e.g. in terms of herbal medicine cultivation processes, GMP/PICS and record-keeping requirements, quality assurance, cannabis licencing and permit requirements.

As you design, build, validate and operate your Medicinal Cannabis facility, you will bump into a host of additional red tape and practical problems in addition to the choice of an economic production model.

Ideal cannabis facility design choices vary greatly with climatic choices, for example, consider two extremes, the poles vs the equator.

To solve challenges facing businesses entering the cannabis cultivation sector, the 1-day Medicinal Cannabis Cultivation Training Course helps solve these difficult design decisions.
