Organization takes steps to set standards in booming industry

Tampa, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/26/2019 -- The National Career Certification Board (NCCB), an organization that specializes in the creation of career examinations that institute national guidelines and establish high standards for employment in a range of fields, is pleased to announce that it is launching four new exams for the cannabis industry. The exams are scheduled to launch March 1, 2019.

A $9.2 billion industry in the United States in 2017, the cannabis industry is expected to grow considerably over the next decade, with some estimates placing it near $50 billion by 2027. Research suggests that approximately two thirds of the market will be dedicated to recreational cannabis, with medical uses accounting for the remaining third. With no existing national certification standards in place for the industry, the NCCB believes its efforts are poised to make a considerable impact in the field.

The national certification exams soon to launch through the NCCB include the following:

- Certified Cannabis Budtender (CCBT)
- Certified Cannabis Horticulture Specialist (CCHS)
- Certified Cannabis Dispensary Management (CCDM)
- Certified Cannabis Edibles Professional (CCEP)

"Given the recent boom in the cannabis industry and its anticipated long-term prospects for growth and sustainability, the lack of established industry standards for certification offers the NCCB an amazing opportunity to contribute to this exciting market," says Russ Dennis, registrar for the NCCB. "We're very eager to begin offering these four new cannabis industry certification exams to help job seekers demonstrate their knowledge and professionalism to employers in this growing field. We believe the possibilities being presented by this industry have the potential to have a considerable impact, and we're excited about having the chance to make a difference."

The certification exams offered by the NCCB allow job seekers to demonstrate background knowledge and achieve national certification in their chosen field before beginning the process of applying for jobs.

The organization's exams are well suited for recent graduates, as well as for those who are interested in a career change, and earning national certification increases job seekers' marketability and helps employers identify driven and committed applicants.
