Sapir Academic College provides unique professional knowledge to train medical cannabis specialists, one of the fastest developing fields in Israel and internationally!
Towards the end of 2020, Sapir launched the new CannAcademy (Cannabis Academy) operated by the College's Professional Development Center together with important partners. These include: Israel's Ministry of Health Medical Cannabis Unit and Yeruham Local Authority's GreeNegev medical cannabis initiative.
Located in Yeruham in the Negev, CannAcademy will offer a variety of professional training courses for diverse jobs in the medical cannabis industry.

At the recent inauguration ceremony, Dudu Shlomo, director of Sapir's Professional Development Center, greeted the participants: "We are in Yeruham today based on Sapir's mission, to provide high-level accessible education, together with community engagement and broad impact on Negev employment".
