Cannabis is the fastest growing industry in the United States. With this increasingly competitive market and ever changing regulations, it has become essential for regulators, industry workers, and employers to stay up-to-date with the latest best practices.
In order to help you master industry’s best practices for Cultivation, Manufacturing and Distribution, Patient Focused Certification (PFC) will be hosting a PFC Verified Professional (PFCVP) training, October 17-21 in Sacramento, CA.
