Our Platform Roadmap Creates Impact
Step 1 – Add & Vote: We’re always going to create new courses so… we built a predictable system called our Platform Roadmap. This is where our community (and YOU) requests topics and votes on them here at Green CulturED, and these new courses will make deploying a “base-line” level of knowledge in your business super simple.
Step 2 – Create: Our Subject Matter Experts (SME’s) and Instructional Design team are going to perpetuate your training process by creating new courses that TRANSFORM your staff into a “machine” so they will always know exactly what to do in your business… so customers start asking you to take their money.
Step 3 – Publish: We call them “Cannabis Blueprints,” because they’re pulled straight out of our Platform Roadmap. You receive access to ALL future training we publish, it is our community that keeps us relevant to increase profitability, reduce risk, and ensure compliance.
“Done-For-You” Instructional Design Team
Our Subject Matter Experts (SME’s) and Instructional Design team matter because they create the learning experiences in a manner that RESULT in the acquisition and application of knowledge and skills.
The time-frames for producing one hour of online training take anywhere from 90 – 240 hours to develop on average. This goes for basic course interactivity and media richness-level, but more FEATURES means more time and money to create online training.
If you assume an average hourly cost of $65 for Instructional Design, you wind up with a cost of $5,850 – $15,600. In our experience, the cost for this type of content tends to be right in the middle so… around $10,725 per hour of training. We provide all this at NO additional cost.

Learning Plans Create “Rockstar” Teams
Step 1 – Diagnose: Let’s assess existing strengths and potential gaps, both at the team and the individual level, so your Learning Plans are truly CUSTOM. We create custom Learning Plan templates that you can assign to team members so… update the templates with new training to ensure they stay on track and exceed training goals.
Step 2 – Design: Working hand-in-hand with you, we build custom-tailored Learning Plans for each team member so they take only the training they need, in the exact sequence they need to take them in, increasing the speed to ROI, reducing friction and frustration.
Step 3 – Implement: We won’t leave you hanging! We implement alongside you to roll out Learning Plans across all members, cementing a culture of GROWTH and learning throughout your organization.
Manager Portal Monitors Team Training
This is when things get REALLY fun! You can easily spend too much time managing training, so we configure your Manager Portal to track progress simply which is linked directly to each members’ account.
We work with you to customize and tweak any Learning Plans (based on staff feedback), update your Manager Portal with all new requirements, and INTEGRATE your new-found Learning Plans throughout your organization ensuring that growth never stops.
Our Manager Portal eliminates the repetitive work of delivering and monitoring all types of training so… you spend LESS time managing training in your organization, while actually getting better results.

Frequently Asked Questions
Have Questions? Get Answers. Learn How to Leverage Our Memberships to Get Access to a "Community Within the Community" Where Learning STICKS & Ideas Get Implemented.
Do you offer a free membership trial?
Lab and Lab+ all have a $1 trial for three (3) days that is available on a single (1) user account. HQ is available for a one (1) user account and does not include a $1 trial, but businesses need to schedule a demo to setup multiple user or team accounts. We always recommend to check out some of our free training to get an idea of our "micro-learning" format (go here).
What’s the difference between Lab, Lab+ & HQ?
Lab is perfect for individuals who want community, and “just the facts” via the step-by-step, “training on steroids” we lovingly call "Cannabis Blueprints". For individuals who want to become professionals and needs more in-depth training, Lab+ is the perfect option, because it’s everything in Lab PLUS (hence the name) all our certifications and mastery courses... you get the idea.
And then there’s Headquarters (HQ). HQ is the highest level of membership we offer at and it’s for professionals or business owners who truly want it all! First, HQ members get access to a smaller, "community within the community" where members of the Green CulturED team and Subject Matter Experts hang out every day. HQ members also get to participate in new, exclusive training and certifications that are created by our Instructional Design team that are released monthly from our Platform Roadmap. It’s made for cannabis industry teams, since with HQ you can add team members as opposed to the single user access.
Once I become a member, where should I start?
Before you do anything else, you need to join the community, and ask at least one burning question (don’t have a question? ... don’t worry... we’ll give you a few ideas). Then, dive into our cannabis industry course catalog and pick any certification or training that will help you reach your growth goals. Don't see a topic you want? Then request topics and vote on our Platform Roadmap (click here).
If I want to cancel, am I locked into a contract?
You can cancel at any time. While we hope you stay forever, we despise contracts and would never impose them on you.
Why should I get certified?
If you’re an individual...
...this certification will set you apart from the pack.
Unlike everyone else who simply calls themselves a "cannabis industry expert," you’ll have the certificate and the badge to prove it, from a source that businesses trust.
More importantly, it will make you a better cannabis expert.
Why? Because you’re receiving the exact same training you would receive as an employee at Green CulturED. (And without tooting our horn too much, we’re pretty good at this stuff!)
And we held nothing back.
These are the same systems and strategies our internal team uses to create industry-leading training that generates experts, and then converts them into professionals, directed by our Subject Matter Experts and Instructional Design team (the people in charge of all things training at Green CulturED).
So, if you want to:
- Enhance your career (or start a new one)
- Learn the latest and greatest tactics (that actually work)
- Expand your skill set, distance yourself from the competition, and jump to a higher pay grade...
- ...this certification is for you...
If you're a business owner...
...maybe you don't need the certification.
But what about your team? Do you know for a fact that they're up to speed on all the latest and greatest cannabis industry developments?
If you're not sure, or if you just want them to receive the exact same training the team at Green CulturED receives, then get them certified!
They'll love the fact that you're investing in them, and you'll love the fact that they're performing at the highest level possible for your company.
Also, there's no rule that you have to sit for the test. If the training is more important to you than the certification, then just take the training and look at the test as an optional extra. (But if I were you I'd take it anyway just to make sure you're fully grasping all the concepts.)
Oh yeah, and if you're an business owner or other industry professional, then you already know how important certifications are to distancing yourself from the competition. And who knows? It might even help you claim higher fees for the work you're already doing.
Either way, if you expect the best for your company, then this certification is for you.
Are you an accredited education provider?
Yes! Yet it varies, so for example, we're accredited by Alaska's Marijuana Control Board to provide their "Marijuana Handler Permit" training, Illinois' Department of Financial and Professional Regulation to provide their required compliance training called "Responsible Vendor" and many others (see “About Us” page for all Accreditation/Memberships). Our Instructional Design team is always creating NEW accredited curriculum with our Subject Matter Experts who are licensed professionals in their respective fields of study. Yet, 99% of our training applies to ANY country or jurisdiction since our team publishes all our training "agnostic" (or white-labeled) so will apply to anyone (or business) that needs cannabis industry education. The cannabis industry is still developing and there is no national 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 to support compliance with regulatory requirements.
Is it legal for me to join your community?
Yes, we are all protected by the first amendment (Freedom of Speech) so anyone in the world can enroll in our training. Just like it is legal to buy books and videos about cannabis on Amazon.com, it is legal to complete our training and learn about the industry no matter where you are located.
Do you meet legal accessibility requirements?
Yes. That's one of the biggest challenges that learners face today is accessibility in their training. We are sensitive to the needs of our learners, we provide Closed-Captioning (sub-titles) for hearing-impaired and/or Screen Readers for visually-impaired learners. Visually-impaired learners can use a Screen Reader through the Job Access With Speech (JAWS) in Microsoft Internet Explorer and we support Visual Desktop Access (NDVA) for Mozilla Firefox.
How long does it take to complete a training?
Our training is designed in a "micro-learning" format to be completed less than a 1-hour period typically, but you will find some longer ones too. "Micro-learning" is a holistic approach for skill-based learning and education which deals with relatively small learning units. It involves short-term-focused strategies especially designed for skill-based training. But our certifications are designed to be completed over a few days if you’re consuming full-time, or a few weeks if you’re allocating an hour or two a day.
What do I need to get the most out of being a member?
The only skill you need is a willingness to learn. The membership content and community has resources and advice for beginner as well as advanced professionals, alike, and we firmly believe there are no stupid questions. Heck, even our team learns a ton when our newest members ask supposedly "stupid questions" that remind us of things we should be doing, but aren’t for whatever reason.
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 our Platform Roadmap (read about it here) into the members area, so there’s no rush or pressure to access it in "real time." Think of us as your always-available, cannabis industry library. There’s a reason it’s been called, "Netflix for Cannabis." 🙂
How can someone verify my training certificate(s)?
Yes! Remember, that you can always access your issued certificate(s) from your account in our Learning Management System (LMS), under the "More" section in your profile.
Your Profile: www.Learn.GreenCulturED.co/user/profile.php
It is possible that you may be in several courses on our platform - each with their own certificate - and it would be time-consuming for you to visit every course to review your certificate(s). 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 all of your issued certificates with the option of downloading them.
Also, here is the "Verify Certificate" tool for you (or anyone) to use the code on your issued certificate to verify its authenticity in our Learning Management System (LMS).
Verification Tool: www.Learn.GreenCulturED.co/mod/customcert/verify_certificate.php
Your certificate of completion is assigned a unique code, that way potential employers (or current ones) can validate your certificate by entering the code displayed on it to confirm that it is indeed authentic.
How do I display digital badges on my LinkedIn?
Yes! We utilize Badgr’s industry-leading credentialing solution to issue our digital badges so you can take your learning with you, wherever you go, building a rich picture of your lifelong learning journey. Using Badgr, you can easily share your digital badge on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and there are two (2) different ways you can share with LinkedIn - as a post to your "Feed" or to the "Certifications" section of your profile.
To enable Badgr, you first need to create an account on www.Badgr.com, then you will be able to connect by completing the following steps: In the user menu (top right), select "Preferences," then "Backpack Settings" under "Badges" or go here:

Enter your Badgr user account email and password. Look in your mailbox for a verification email and copy and paste the link to verify your connection to the backpack.
