Medicinal Cannabis Cultivation Training Course – Australia, New Zealand and South Africa

Medicinal Cannabis Cultivation Training Course – Australian, New Zealand and South Africa

In Australia, New Zealand and Southern Africa, the cultivation and manufacture of Medicinal Cannabis is heavily regulated. This can be a challenge for companies even with considerable international cultivation and manufacturing experience, as the cultivation techniques and regulatory systems are very different to what they may be accustomed to in terms of cultivation processes, record-keeping requirements, quality assurance, 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 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.

This 1-day Medicinal Cannabis Cultivation Training Course provides attendees with a host of practical cannabis facility design and cultivation tips. It is a must-attend for anyone considering entering the medicinal cannabis sector. These courses are offered regularly in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
