CALGARY, May 1, 2018 /CNW/ - Terra Life Sciences Inc. (Terra Life Sciences) is pleased to announce its partnership with Olds College to support the College's new Cannabis Production program offering.
The company will work with the College to develop and deliver education and training for students to help prepare them for career opportunities in the burgeoning cannabis industry.
"We're extremely proud to be a founding partner with Olds College in the development of this program, as it will turn out graduates with valuable skills who know the ins and outs of not just the horticultural side of the industry but the regulatory side as well which, for our industry, is critical," said Dr. Anil Jain, President and Chief Executive Officer of Terra Life Sciences.
