Did you know…

Growing cannabis industry

The legal cannabis industry is on pace to be a $44 BILLION business by 2020, according to the Marijuana Business Factbook?

That’s a 260% increase in just 4 short years!

During that same period, Forbes says there will be more cannabis industry jobs
300,000 – than manufacturing jobs in the U.S.

Consider Colorado as an example. Since voters legalized recreational cannabis in 2012…

  • More than 500 retail stores have opened across the state –
    in addition to more than 500 medical marijuana dispensaries.
  • More than 720 licensed cannabis cultivation facilities are in operation.
  • More than 38,000 employees make up the medical and recreational cannabis markets.
And Colorado is only 1 of 30 states that have legalized cannabis.
The industry is booming, and so are job and investment opportunities. Even if your
state is one of the 20 that hasn’t allowed cannabis sales yet, it’s clear the future is green.

Are you ready?

As more legal cannabis businesses open, there is an expanding need for educated,
committed, and passionate professionals.

However, breaking in when you don’t have any experience or educational credentials can be tricky. If you’ve tested the waters, you know.

Hiring managers are looking for industry experience or proof that you’ve completed industry training. Just saying you’ve grown for yourself and friends, or that you’re a long-time user doesn’t cut it.

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

All the while, jobs are going unfilled.

Employers need people who know and respect cannabis, and care about helping others get the benefits of this amazing plant. Sure, soft skills like organization, punctuality, customer service and the ability to multi-task are also necessary, but demonstrating a…

  • Complete understanding of the plant
  • The effects of different methods of ingestion
  • And a thorough knowledge of how retail dispensaries are operated
…is the foundation for a good employee.

After all, this is a complex industry and if you aren’t highly
educated, you won’t be successful in any role.

Bad interview

If you’re a manager, owner or investor already in the cannabis industry you’re probably nodding “yes” right now. You know how important educated employees are, and you also know how difficult it is to get new employees up to speed, not to mention continuing to develop the knowledge and skills of your existing staff.

So, if you’re interested, committed and passionate, there are jobs out there. Cannabis CAN be the career you’re looking for. But you need a place to start, and employers need high quality, educated employees.

Without educated, knowledgeable, and capable staff, how do you expect customers to choose YOUR business over one where they feel taken care of, respected, and valued?

Cannabis is a complex, customer-driven business.

  • Would you let a doctor with no medical degree operate on you?
  • How about a contractor with no license – would you let him build your home?
  • Would you buy a car or diamond from someone without any proven
    product knowledge?
  • Absolutely not.

There’s too much at risk NOT to consult an expert.

And in the cannabis industry, those risks are incredibly real.

Owners and investors pour hundreds of thousands of dollars into gaining licenses, renting space, purchasing equipment, setting up detailed grow rooms and procedures, building a customer base…and the list goes on and on.

The stakes are extremely high – higher than most other industries – and that’s exactly why a reputable, respected, and trusted third-party educational certificate is so important. Employers need proof, and you must provide it to them.

Get hired with education
Industry training, a good idea.

So ask yourself:

  • …How am I going to prove I’m the best candidate for a career in cannabis?
  • …What will impress a hiring manager about my resume above other resumes?
  • …What can I bring to the table that cannabis businesses desire?
  • …Are there steps I can take to stand out from the thousands of other cannabis industry hopefuls?

Thankfully, there is ONE industry-recognized certificate that tells cannabis
businesses that you’re the real deal.

A Certificate of Completion from the industry’s trusted training Institute is your opportunity to
demonstrate your knowledge and commitment to a career in cannabis.

It’s evidence that a third-party is backing you up. It tells people you aren’t just claiming to know, but that you have the credentials to PROVE you know.

What does a Certificate of Completion do for me?

Whether you want to join the cannabis industry, you’re already in cannabis and looking for a promotion, you want to
invest in cannabis, or you are looking to open a business…

A Certificate of Completion can help you:

  • Demonstrate to employers, investors or lenders that you’re serious about your future in cannabis – serious enough to invest to improve your knowledge and skills.
  • Avoid costly mistakes made because you thought you knew…but didn’t know enough.
  • Learn the uncommon vocabulary of the cannabis industry and unique language of retail dispensaries so you can speak with authority and accuracy.

  • Legitimize your experience with cannabis so people know you can do
    more than just “talk-the-talk”.
  • Confidently reinforce what you know, and fill the gaps in your understanding of this dynamic plant and complicated industry.
