Hey, we get it...cannabis growing isn't for everyone,
but education to prove credibility IS!

And that's why we're giving you a chance to earn your
Certificate of Completion in Cannabis Industry Overview
(with a 20% discount)!

As you know, there is a BIG future for cannabis…

Legal cannabis businesses are booming! The industry is estimated to be worth a whopping $44 BILLION by 2020 – that’s a 260% increase.

And the jobs are there for the taking.

Let’s look again at Colorado just to see those numbers in action. Since 2012…

  • 500 retail stores and
  • 500 medical marijuana dispensaries have opened across the state.
  • 720 cannabis cultivation facilities in operation.
  • 38,000 employees in the medical and recreational cannabis markets.

But…are you really ready?

Sure, the need for intelligent, invested, and trustworthy employees is high,
but do you have what you need to prove your value?

Get hired with education.

Trying to join an industry without any experience or education can be a quick dead end to a hopeful career. If you’ve been applying, or you’re in a hiring position, you know what that feels like.

Industry training, on-location experience or an industry-recognized course are necessary resume builders to have. Touting your years as a regular user, or having grown in the basement is NOT the professional experience businesses are looking for. Not to mention, everyone has those ad hoc experiences (and no one is impressed).

As we’ve said before, and you now know…

  • No industry training = No interview.
  • No interview = No job.

You’re missing your chance to get noticed!

Employers need cannabis professionals who are going to treat this plant with the respect it deserves. Of course other skills, like following instruction, managing people and providing top-notch customer service are also needed, but cannabis businesses are looking for employees with cannabis-specific knowledge.

  • Thorough understanding of the plant, its parts and how it’s grown.
  • Ingestion methods and effects including topicals, suppositories and a variety of smokable options.
  • State, local and federal laws per your location and type of cannabis business.

It’s a complicated industry and if you aren’t third-party educated, you may never reach your full potential.

Managers, owners and investors want educated employees so they can maximize hiring, training and financial resources. Training can be costly and time consuming, but if you come with a foundation of the industry, you’re already demonstrating your value.

The good news about that is, if you’re willing to invest in your education, commit to the industry, and have a genuine interest in helping people, there are jobs for you. Cannabis CAN be the career you love and live, but you need a head start.

Cannabis businesses need savvy, INFORMED and invested professionals who bring value to the organization and the people they serve.

Become a serious candidate with resume boosters that will get you noticed.

Hey Business Owners!
You probably already have this knowledge, but what about your employees?
Are you providing HIGH QUALITY service to customers and patients?

employees training online
Customer service

Customer service is crucial to your success as a business owner, manager, or investor in the cannabis industry. We know how hard it can be to train employees for uniform service in a such a varied and diverse industry.

As they say… “you’re only as good as your weakest employee“, so why not make sure you don’t have any weak links in the chain?

  • Streamline your onboarding process for all employees – cultivation, dispensary, MIP, and administrative – so that everyone is compliant and educated the ins and outs of what they’re providing, selling, making, and regulating.
  • Upskill employees with a Certificate of Completion so customers and patients know you value the education and professionalism they do.
  • Provide uniform training to end the spread of misinformation from uneducated employees to customers and patients.
  • Elevate your quality of customer service by ensuring all employees are trained to meet the unique needs of individual customers and patients.

People genuinely care where they get their cannabis, and they typically have a lot of options to choose from. If your business and employees aren’t providing the highest quality of service, you might not make it in this service-driven industry. But don’t worry…

We’re here to help YOU!

We want you, your business and your employees to succeed, so we’re extending special group-only packages to industry leaders who want to enroll more than one person.
