Greenhouse Grower Certification

Become a certified greenhouse grower and start your journey as a master grower today. Planning a greenhouse is not the easiest task. There are many intertwined components and several sizes available. This certification introduces you to small-scale commercial greenhouse production and helps you develop the skills needed to design, supervise, and grow cannabis successfully in a greenhouse operation.

Whether you are a novice greenhouse grower or have been at it a while, our greenhouse grower training will give you the knowledge you need to achieve your greenhouse dreams. Our certification will provide you with comprehensive training to operate greenhouses and outdoor frames, so you can successfully cultivate cannabis using the power of sunlight (without expensive electricity).

Learn the design and use of enclosed structures to manipulate controlled environments, effects on growth as applied to cannabis, and the seasonal process of cultivating outdoors. Growers who utilize greenhouses often achieve unbelievable quality with their plants, because it is difficult to match the optimal energy of the sun indoors. With our greenhouse Grower training, you will learn the skills you need to harness that power and grow a thriving cannabis garden.

With the high cost of electricity to cultivate commercial gardens indoors, greenhouses provide the ability for higher production yields and the ability to lower costs using natural sunlight. This certification is intended for those going into or already working in the cannabis industry. Much of the time requires the study of greenhouse structures, nutrition, soil formulation, and pest management.

Micro-Learning Modules

Cannabis Life Cycle

Cannabis plants go through a series of stages as they grow and mature, and those different stages call for different amounts of light, nutrients, and water. It’s important to know these stages and how long each lasts to know what the plant needs and when. Knowing where your plants are in their life cycle will dictate when to prune, train, and trellis your plants, and when to harvest. It’ll be quicker if you start with a clone or an auto-flower seed, but the biggest variability in how long a cannabis plant takes to grow will happen during the vegetative stage.

Micro-Learning Modules

  • Calendar and Checklist
  • Cannabis Horticulture
Seeds and Seedlings

Cannabis seeds can be acquired from an array of sources and can vary in quality, but require three things to germinate: water, heat, and air. Germination is the process in which a new cannabis plant begins to grow from seed. Also referred to as “popping,” germination is the very first step in starting your cannabis garden. Cannabis seeds can be acquired from an array of sources and can vary in quality yet the seedling stage can be a looming challenge for novice growers, we will cover the simple steps so you can easily manage cannabis seedlings.

Micro-Learning Modules

  • Cannabis Seeds
  • Cannabis Strains
  • Germination and Seedlings
Clones, Cloning and Mothers

Learn how cannabis plants come from one of two sources: a seed or a clone. Mother plants are needed in the cloning process – they are highly valued plants that growers take cuttings off of to create clones. The clones are genetically identical cuttings that can then be planted to grow into a new plant. Other methods you’ll discover is how to take cuttings off a set of mother plants then start flowering the mothers. The next generation of clones is grown, and when they get big enough, cuttings will be taken before getting flipped to start flowering.

Micro-Learning Modules

  • Clones, Cloning and Mothers
  • Getting Ready to Clone
  • Step-by-Step Cloning
Vegetative Growth

The vegetative growth phase is a period of the growing cycle that takes place after seedlings are rooted and before flowering the plants. Learn how during vegetative growth cannabis plants go through a series of stages as they grow and mature. Each of those different stages the plants go through calls for different amounts of light, nutrients, and water, but it’s important to know these stages. Knowing exactly where your plants are in their life cycle will dictate what to do during the vegetative growth stage until you’re ready to start flowering.

Micro-Learning Modules

  • Transplanting Cannabis
  • Pruning and Bending
Harvesting Cannabis

Harvesting is usually the most exciting time when it comes to growing cannabis plants since all your efforts culminate at the moment when you cut down your crop. After months of waiting and working hard to carefully tending your cannabis plants, you’re finally ready to harvest a bountiful yield of frosty, fragrant cannabis buds. While you may be tempted to dry as quickly as possible, yet you’ll need to cure through a prolonged process of removing moisture from the flowers under controlled conditions which provide a much better product.

Micro-Learning Modules

  • Flowering Cannabis
  • Harvesting Cannabis
  • Manicuring, Drying, Curing and Storing
Water and Nutrients

Cannabis plants are sensitive to water and nutrients, and there’s a fine line between properly feeding your plants and burning them with chemicals. Find out everything you need to know about properly feeding cannabis plants and learn about the absorption of nutrition, and the included dissolved nutrient salts occurs via the roots of the plant. Learn how this process is done through osmosis which is a physical process in which substances move from one fluid and are separated by a semi-permeable wall (the plant cell) to another fluid within the plant.

Micro-Learning Modules

  • Water and Irrigation
  • Nutrients and Deficiencies
  • Fertilizers and Additives
Air and Environment

Growing cannabis in an indoor environment gives the grower much greater control over the vast number of variables that can affect a plant’s health. The movement of air through an indoor grow space is imperative to maintaining a healthy garden, and without proper ventilation, a grow space can face a number of problems, like carbon dioxide depletion and proliferation of mold and pests. Proper ventilation is a key aspect of running an efficient and clean grow room. In fact, most cannabis pests and plagues are caused by ventilation issues.

Micro-Learning Modules

  • Air and Cannabis Environment
  • Cannabis Odor Control
  • CO2 Enrichment
Pests, Fungi and Diseases

Unfortunately, bugs, fungi, and other garden pests can totally mess up your cannabis harvest! Just like any other crop cultivated, cannabis is subject to a wide range of pests and diseases that can distress your plants, even kill them if left untreated. Before you can make an informed decision about how best to solve a problem, it is necessary to be able to identify the cause of the plant stress or its symptoms. You will learn different types of bugs, pests, and mold that can affect your plants, along with tips for preventing and solving each problem.

Micro-Learning Modules

  • Pests and Predators
  • Outdoor Pests and Predators
  • Fungi and Diseases
Greenhouses and Outdoor Frames

Learn the beauty of using a greenhouse to grow your cannabis plants includes the removal of the tricky complexities of an indoor grow room setup. It is also considered by many to be superior to growing outdoors, as it is more secure yet also more consistent and predictable than growing cannabis plants outdoors. Find how takes the best parts of the natural elements and combines it with protection against the worst parts of the elements, making it the perfect situation especially when growing cannabis when you’re located in colder climates.

Micro-Learning Module

  • Greenhouses and Outdoor Frames
Electricity and Timers

You will discover that one of the most costly problems when growing cannabis plants you can mention is the high electric bill. Luckily, for most greenhouse operations, the electric bill is about 5 – 10% of the total energy cost and covers such items as the power to run motors, lights, heating elements, and controls when growing indoors. Yet, you will learn that you will still need electricity to run your exhaust fans, light deprivation systems, water irrigation, and other tools you’ll use to grow cannabis plants within your greenhouse growing operation.

Micro-Learning Module

  • Electricity, Power Sources and Timers
Soil and Containers

Selecting the optimal growing containers isn’t always easy and not all growing containers are equal since some types of containers are better suited for some purposes than others. When it comes to containers, your plants want one thing only: a safe, healthy place for root development. Without healthy roots, your cannabis will never thrive. Roots are in charge of water retention, nutrient absorption, anchoring the plant, and facilitate vegetative growth. All of these functions must be considered when choosing a container to grow cannabis.

Micro-Learning Modules

  • Soil Growing
  • Soil Amendments
  • Soil Containers

Our platform is composed of a complex system with many parts and aspects of our development is always evolving so “accessibility” is NOT a state. It is a process of continuous improvement in response to our learners and technical environment.

Frequently Asked Questions

We Have Helped Thousands of Cannabis Enthusiast & Workers GROW Their Knowledge, Let's Walk-Through Questions About Our Proven eLearning Solutions.

Do you offer a free trial of your training?

Yes! We offer a 90-day "Free Trial" (click here) so you can "test-drive" our platform and know what to expect in our eLearning solutions when it comes to our online "micro-learning" format. If you need your trial to last longer than 90-days or you need more time to test our eLearning solutions... you can always START your free trial again by simply re-enrolling...

How do I log in to access my training?

To log into your account, go to the "Training Login" (click here) on our platform and access the eLearning solutions you're enrolled in the Learning Management System (LMS). Put simply, the LMS dashboard is your "homepage" where you have an overview of your training and any activities which may need attention, so you know what to do to continue learning.

If you cannot log in, you can RESET your password from the "Lost your password?" (click here) option on our platform if you do not remember your password or forgot the email address you registered your account under. You should have received a welcome email after registering on our platform and it contains account details for your login information.

Remember, complete the "Whitelist Instructions" (click here) for our email address. You want to be sure that you are receiving our emails too... otherwise, you might NOT get your certificate and other cool things... they're all sent via email so make sure you receive them...

Are you an accredited education provider?

Yes! Yet... it VARIES so much. For example, we're accredited by Alaska's Marijuana Control Board to provide their "Marijuana Handler Permit," Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation to provide their required "Responsible Vendor" compliance training and others... see our "About Us" (click here) page for accreditations and memberships.

And 99% of our training applies to ANY country or jurisdiction (ex. Canada, Europe Australia, etc.) since our team publishes all our education "agnostically" (or "white-labeled") so our eLearning solutions really apply to anyone that needs cannabis education... you must understand "English" (our "native language") that's really the only criterion to get started.

Our team is always creating new accredited curricula with our Subject Matter Experts who are industry professionals in their respective fields of study. The industry is still developing and there is no universal accreditation (ex. Department of Education, etc.), but we expect to see this change in the NEAR future and realize the vital role that accreditation plays.

Do you offer team training for my business?

Yes! We provide a total eLearning solution, so you can EASILY train your team in a way that will provide you a "turn-key" solution for your whole team at an affordable price. It's called "Headquarters" (click here), "HQ" for short, and how we become an "extension of your team" to increase your profitability ($$$), ensure you're compliant and reducing your safety risks.

We have clients from dozens of countries around the globe utilizing our eLearning solutions since 99% of our training applies to ANY country (as long as you speak English is our only current limitation). We have been trusted for years by companies around the world and we're endorsed by the leaders that are driving the cannabis industry forward so if there's training missing that you need then we will publish it via our "Platform Roadmap" (click here).

We've built a best-in-class Learning Management System (LMS) that can be customized to your business from one centralized dashboard, allowing you to create learning plans for your teams, then track and assess everyone's activities with analytics. Whether you want your team to perform better, to make better STRATEGIC decisions, or new staff to learn quickly... they will be equipped with credible knowledge and industry skills needed for your business.

How will your industry training help me?

It depends! Being an expert is the industry's most valuable ASSET. It will create meaningful relationships with your peers and develop your knowledge to apply new skills. Proper training pays for itself over time and what you will learn makes you truly irreplaceable.

Our training itself is highly valuable if you need to set yourself apart from the competition in the cannabis industry. What's far MORE valuable than any certificate, however, is the actual knowledge you're going to receive when you take our training and pass all the assessments. You will learn everything about cannabis that you need to know, and we'll say that again:

You will KNOW the cannabis industry, but it really depends on who you are...

  • If you're a "cannabis lover," this training will set you apart from others who merely have read information online or have no cannabis knowledge, it is specialized training that you want today and lovingly seeking to learn more about cannabis.
  • If you're an industry professional, we can help set you apart from your peers and make you more valuable to your company. This is the surest way to get a raise or promotion that you likely already deserve (but don't have a tangible reason to ask).
  • If you provide ancillary services, our eLearning solutions are a tangible way to show that you understand and know the industry, which helps you attract better, higher-paying clients to bolster your revenue and make a "bottom-line" impact.
  • If you're a manager or business owner, this training is a great way to learn on-demand for yourself. We are your "Headquarters" (click here) and a great way to train team members so they're up to speed on the latest trends and best practices.
Is it legal for me to take your training?

Yes! It is 100% legal and you may enroll in our training regardless of the country in which you currently reside since we're based in the United States and we are all protected by the First Amendment (Freedom of Speech). Regardless of location, it is legal to learn about cannabis and we have learners enrolling every single day since our training applies to ANY country.

Taking our eLearning solutions, really, is the same as shopping on Amazon.com, eBay.com, or any place where you can legally purchase cannabis-related books, DVD’s, magazines, or guides... so it is 100% legal to learn from us anywhere you are located on planet earth...

Do you meet legal accessibility requirements?

Yes! One of the biggest challenges that learners face today is "Accessibility" in their eLearning solutions and why we started our "Industry Impact Program" (click here) to make this change. Unlike most of our competitors (which they do have great content), we are VERY different and sensitive to disabilities so we provide closed-captioning (sub-titles) for hearing-impaired and screen readers for those visually-impaired who want to learn about cannabis.

Our platform is composed of a complex system with many parts and its development is always evolving so "Accessibility" is NOT a state. It is a process of continuous improvement in response to our learners and our wider technical environment. We have worked extensively to meet "Accessibility" standards. And here are the details how we meet those requirements:

  • United States: "American Disability Act" (Section 508) is required so that information and technology are accessible for anyone with disabilities.
  • Canada: "Accessible Canada Act" aims to benefit all citizens, especially those individuals with disabilities, by helping to create barrier-free accessibility.
  • Europe (EU): "European Accessibility Act" used by EU governments and universities, this aims to improve the trade and remove country-specific rules.
  • Australia: "Disability Discrimination Act" applies to organizations developing online resources so there is no discrimination against people with disabilities.
  • WCAG 2.0: Used when deciding how to present content for the best web accessibility, these guidelines are always followed when we develop any media.
  • ATAG 2.0: Guidelines to construct content (as well as consuming online content) and helps to improve the accessibility of the media that our team produces.
  • ARIA 1.0: As many parts of the user interface are dynamic and interactive, we follow these recommendations to utilize assistive technologies (ex. screen-readers).
What is your online training format like?

Interactive! Our training is designed in a "micro-learning" format that is typically completed in less than a one (1) hour period, but you will find some longer ones too. "Micro-learning" is a HOLISTIC approach for skill-based learning which deals with relatively small learning units that are short-term-focused strategies specifically designed for skill-based training needed. We always recommend to try our "Free Trial" (click here) to get an idea of our format.

And our team of educational-technologist, Instructional Designers and Subject Matter Experts (SME's) strive to provide you with the best industry training and eLearning solutions available. With their peer-reviewed citations as leading experts, scientists, doctors, and educators... we always provide the best learning experience. Request new training on our "Platform Roadmap" (click here) or VOTE on current ones contributed by our community.

How long do I have access to my training?

It varies... there is never any type of time limitations and training is ALWAYS happening because our training is 100% online, so you can start whenever you like. Typically, our enrollment duration for most of our training is one (1) year enrollment duration (unless noted). You will always be able to learn at your own pace, start, and stop at any time!

Even though many different governments have specific time requirements for compliance training, there is no time limit to complete our training. You can work at your own PACE without having to worry about losing your enrollment and any time frame listed to complete the training is an average since it varies person-to-person and your personal experience.

For many learners who are well-versed in the subject matter, they can get through training at a much faster pace, and those that need to review the material can do so without having to feel PRESSURED about completing in a specific time frame or achieving specific competency.

How difficult are the training assessments?

Satisfyingly enough... you'll find that our assessments are "satisfyingly difficult." By that we mean, it's difficult enough that you need to actually KNOW the materials, but it isn't tricky or difficult just for the sake of being difficult. The majority of our training requires an 80% passing grade in order to complete (unless noted) and your certificate is immediately issued.

That said, to preserve the exclusivity and importance of this designation, we have made the assessments challenging and the questions pertain to our proprietary methodologies, so you shouldn't expect to be able to pass just because you have taken other training... we are VERY different compared to our competitors and our assessments will reflect those differences.

If I fail, am I allowed to re-take the assessment?

Yes! If you do not receive a passing grade (typically 80% or above is required) you may retake the assessment an unlimited number of times. After each failed attempt, you receive immediate FEEDBACK why it was incorrect and provides you some additional learning.

Am I guaranteed to get a certificate of completion?

No! A certificate of completion that can simply be purchased isn't WORTH the paper it's printed on. That's why our training is challenging. If we're going to allow you to display our certificate of completion, you better believe you're going to have to apply yourself to earn it!

How can someone verify my training certificate(s)?

Easily! You or anyone can verify the authenticity of your certificate by going to the "Verify Certificate" tool (click here) using the unique code found on your certificate. Your certificates are assigned a unique code to VERIFY it in our Learning Management System (LMS) that way anyone can validate it by entering the custom code displayed to confirm its authenticity.

Remember, that you can always access your issued certificate(s) from your account in our LMS, under the "More" section (click here) in your profile. It is possible that you may complete several trainings - each with their OWN certificate - it would be time-consuming to visit every course to download all your certificate of completions that have been issued.

To avoid this, on your profile, you can view all the certificates that have been issued to you. Go to your profile page under "Miscellaneous" and click on "My Certificates" which will take you to your ISSUED certificates and you can simply download them all at one (1) time.

How often do you publish new training?

Monthly! But don’t feel like you have to consume everything the moment it’s released... everything NEW that we create is published from the "Platform Roadmap" (click here) into our solutions, so there’s no rush or pressure to access it in "real-time." Think of us as your always-available, training library... there's a reason why we're called "Netflix for Cannabis"...

Will you help me find a job after my training?

Of course! We provide access to resume writing services so you can be ready to apply for posted job openings when you are browsing through available positions in the cannabis industry. The industry is currently BOOMING around the world and now is the time to get involved in the fastest growing industry that is happening on planet earth right now.

There are numerous career opportunities opening on job boards or career websites every day. We always recommend checking locally too since the industry is RAPIDLY growing, you will never know what cannabis industry opportunities that will be in your own backyard.

Are scholarships or financial aid available?

Kind of... at this time, no scholarships or financial aid are available, but we do provide scholarships through our "Industry Impact Program" (click here) to make an IMPACT for anyone who has a disability or military service. We are all about empowering people to get involved in a way that truly inspires and makes them excited to get out of bed in the morning!

But we have priced our training so that they are affordable to everyone interested in the cannabis industry, especially compared to similar education that is available. We believe that cannabis can be about much MORE than just earning profits - it can also be the ultimate lever for making a difference in the world's most exciting industry that is happening right now.

Our Mission

We're Green CulturED and we're on a mission. It's a simple, but a very powerful mission: We will train 1,000,000+ individuals over the next five (5) years everything there's to know about cannabis and HELP ensure regulatory compliance, reduce risk, and increase profitability.

If we achieve this mission, we will create 100's of 1,000's of opportunities for individuals that will add BILLIONS into the global economy. That's a big deal! It's an important mission and we're "radically committed" since we believe it will change the world, yet we need your help.

Why? We do this because we believe this industry is the most challenging, interesting and rewarding field there is. And finally, we do it for YOU. In the end, it's our community who matters. We learn from you. We're thankful for you... if you share our vision, let's get started!
