Berkshire students pursue a higher education

PITTSFIELD — As the cannabis industry continues to grow in the Berkshires, an educational institution has developed a curriculum to equip those interested in entering this sector of the state’s newest legalized workforce.

Beginning on Tuesday, Sept. 3, Berkshire Community College is launching a cannabis certificate program.

The robust training program is designed to provide a strong foundation for those interested in the cannabis industry, said Maya Richards, training and community outreach manager for Pittsfield-based Berkshire Roots.

Late last year, the vertically-integrated marijuana dispensary and the college met to collaborate on a potential curriculum.

In the discussions, officials from the college inquired what skills Berkshire Roots would be looking for its employees or workforce and mapped them out into a course of studies, said Christina L. Wynn, dean of enrollment management at Berkshire Community College.
