RENO, Nev. (News 4 & FOX 11) — Extended Studies at the University of Nevada, Reno has high hopes for its new cannabis education program.

The fully online courses will be offered as four separate certificates to help students land jobs in the budding marijuana industry.

"I think the one thing we've seen with COVID is that people have been displaced from jobs. People have realized they might want a completely new career," said Jozi Herzik, interim vice provost with UNR Extended Studies. "This is an opportunity. And they're also really well paying jobs."

According to the program's website, skilled labor salaries in the cannabis industry are 11% higher than the average median salary in the US.
