Baker College has partnered with House of Dank (HOD), a well-known cannabis brand in Michigan, to offer cannabis-related internships in Metro Detroit. This collaboration aims to develop a skilled workforce for the cannabis industry while providing students with thorough education and training.

The private college in Oakland County is launching three specialized cannabis certificates to prepare students for careers in the marijuana industry. Each course, available fully online, takes nine weeks to complete.

"Partnering with House of Dank allows us to bridge the gap between education and employment," stated Kelley Suggs, public relations manager for Baker College. "Our goal is to ensure students not only gain valuable knowledge about the cannabis industry but also have the opportunity to apply these skills in real-world settings through internships and job opportunities."

Program Highlights

The cannabis certificate programs, developed in collaboration with Green Flower, a leader in cannabis education, cover three essential areas: Advanced Dispensary Associate Skills Training, Cannabis Manufacturing, and Cannabis Cultivation. These programs are designed to meet the growing demand for skilled workers in the expanding cannabis industry.

As part of this initiative, House of Dank will conduct open interviews and plans to hire interns from Baker College's programs, aiming to place them by Labor Day weekend, coinciding with the annual Soaring Eagle Arts, Beats & Eats festival in downtown Royal Oak, Michigan.

"House of Dank has always been about innovation and pushing our industry forward. In keeping with this tradition, we have partnered with Baker College and their new cannabis education program to create a new pipeline of careers for their students. Starting at this year's Arts, Beats & Eats festival, we will introduce the first class of their graduates and our paid interns. We're excited for all who will visit Dankland and/or Dankway this year," said Michael P. DiLaura, House of Dank chief of corporate operations.
