What the heck are these online Zoom meetings like?
Maybe you haven't used Zoom before... even if you don't work from home, you've probably heard of Zoom. The video-conferencing app has become the STANDARD for connecting with others face-to-face virtually in both business and personal settings. Zoom is now the video communication platform of choice for federal governments, tech startups, different religious communities, and just people looking to chat - even party - with their friends and family. Depending on the type of computer you're using, the process will be slightly different...

About Zoom Meetings

Zoom is a cloud-based video communications app that allows us to set up virtual video and audio-conferencing, webinars, live chats, screen-sharing, and other collaborative training capabilities. You don't need an account to attend a Zoom meeting, and the platform is compatible with Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS, and Android, meaning nearly anyone can access it. In short, a big part of Zoom's APPEAL is because of the simplicity of using the platform. It's easy to get started, the app is lightweight, and the interface is relatively intuitive to use with popular features like "Gallery View" - a mode that allows our moderators to see every person on the training - built right into the app. It's SIMPLE to download it whether on your computer or your mobile device and the platform is available for iPhone, iPad, and Android mobile devices through the App Store and Google Play Store, respectively. If you plan on using your computer, you'll want to go to Zoom's website and download it now (click here).
How do I prepare to attend an online Zoom meeting?
Show up fifteen (15) minutes early! Our goal is to provide our learners an outstanding live training experience. In order for us to deliver on our learning OBJECTIVES, we have addressed the technical requirements needed on your end to help ensure the highest possible quality experience when you attend our online Zoom meeting for upcoming events. We have found the Zoom platform currently the most robust platform for delivering online training to our standards. It is helpful that learners are familiar with Zoom to help them INTERACT with the instructor during the training. We have a video that has been provided by Zoom below for you to become familiar with the platform to prepare for your live event...

Zoom Meeting Overview

Device & Access

Our desire is for each learner to have direct communication with our instructor during this training. In order for this to occur, we REQUEST that every learning to login into the Zoom training individually, on their own desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or even smartphone so:
  1. Verify that your computer, laptop, etc. have BOTH audio & web-cam/video capability.
  2. Prepare a dedicated learning space that is 100% free from ANY distractions.
  3. Optimize your Internet connection by plugging DIRECTLY into the modem (if possible).
  4. Log in to Zoom from a location that will provide a RELIABLE Internet connection.
  5. Keep your device powered up since training can LAST up to seven (7) hours each day.

Other Requirements

Here are a few other learner TIPS and suggestions to make this an amazing experience:
  • Ask For Help! A moderator will be available to ASSIST you with any questions or technical issues. You can use "chat" or "raise your hand" during the training.
  • Come Prepared. Have your digital training materials READY for the training.
  • Be Engaged. Keep your web camera/video ON during the training, please stay on mute the ENTIRE time (unless you're sharing) to eliminate background noise.
  • Return Immediately. If you are disconnected for any reason, return to the training by SIMPLY signing back into Zoom from our "Training Login" page (click here).
How do I use all of these online Zoom meeting controls?
There is tons of functionality... Zoom's meeting controls allow you to manage various aspects of your live event when you attend. These features allow moderators to SHARE hosting privileges with our authorized trainers, allowing them to manage the "training side" of the online Zoom meeting, such as managing learners or starting and stopping the recording. The following shows the controls available to you in the online Zoom meeting...

Zoom Meeting Controls

Zoom Features

  • Mute & Unmute Audio Controls
  • Start & Stop Webcam Video
  • View All Learners Attending
  • Share Your Computer Screen
  • Request or Give Remote Control
  • In-Meeting Live Chat Features
  • Answer Polls During Training
  • Enter Closed-Captioning (CC)
  • Join Audio via Mobile Phone
  • Reactions & Non-Verbal Feedback
Are these online Zoom meetings accessibility compliant?
Yes! One of the biggest challenges that learners face today is "accessibility" within their eLearning solutions and why we started our "Industry Impact Program" (click here) to make this change. Unlike most of our competitors (which do have great content), we are VERY different and sensitive to disabilities so we provide Closed-Captioning (CC) for those who are hearing-impaired and screen readers for individuals visually impaired who want to learn.

Closed-Captioned (CC)

Zoom has a variety of options for creating closed captioning in your meetings and webinars, which provides subtitles of the spoken in-meeting communications. This may be used for learners to more easily follow the conversations, or to MEET accessibility requirements. In meetings, the host or another meeting attendee assigned by the host can provide manual captioning, an integrated third-party Closed-Captioning (CC) service can provide the captioning, or Zoom’s live transcription feature can automatically provide you captions. Unless requested, we do provide captioning manually or with a third-party service since our live transcription feature is also available but has limitations to take note of. Live event transcriptions are currently only supported in English and the accuracy of the Closed-Captioning (CC) feature DEPENDS on numerous variables, such as but not limited to:
  • Background noise and Internet connectivity-issues AFFECTING the audio quality
  • Volume and CLARITY of the trainer's voice while they're presenting the training
  • Our trainer's proficiency with English being their NATIVE spoken-language
  • Lexicons and dialects that OCCUR in specific geographic areas or communities
Because of these limitations, if you are required to use speech-to-text support for ANY compliance or accessibility needs when attending our live events, we always recommend contacting us about using a manual captioner or service that will guarantee specific accuracy.
Can I attend the online Zoom meeting via mobile phone?
No... if you are attending any of our Fed/Cal-OSHA General Industry Training then you can NOT attend via your phone (only if no other device is available then rare exceptions are made, but you must have a dedicated "learning space" that is quiet with no distractions). We have had learners try to "attend" our Fed/Cal-OSHA General Industry Training via their smartphones while in the car and traveling in the past (yes, they were actually driving their cars). This is NOT allowed by OSHA's regulatory requirements and your web camera/video is required to be turned on at the entire time during your training so it is easy for our training moderators to determine if you're engaged in the online Zoom meeting and actively learning. If we find that you are not in a dedicated space and "present" during the training (ex. driving your car, talking to others around you, etc.) then we will remove you from the Zoom meeting and a refund will NOT be issued. And you will be required to 100% completely restart your government compliance training, we don't want this happening so don't break these rules.
Why am I required to have my web-cam/video turned on?
One reason: government compliance requirement... when you attend any of our Fed/Cal-OSHA General Industry Training you are required to keep your web-camera/video ON during the entire time and to stay on mute unless sharing to eliminate background noise. There are two (2) ways to join meeting audio: joining via computer or joining via telephone. Follow along with the video below to test your audio before or after joining a meeting. Or you can also join a "test" online Zoom meeting to familiarize yourself with the controls.

Zoom Meeting Audio/Video Controls

Why are there moderators in my online training events?
Due to government compliance requirements... the moderator guides and fuels discussions by being present and active. If the compliance training is a one-way communication, where learners post questions or comments and they fall into the void of the internet, learners will stop using it. The GOAL is to encourage learners to be actively engaged in the online Zoom meeting and the moderator will take a back seat while monitoring your web-cam/video. Government compliance training requires our moderators to make sure you're physically visible on your web-camera/video, etc. since it is mandated by OSHA regulatory compliance. Good compliance training programs help to PREVENT poor conduct and ensure proper governance in our training. This helps to minimize risk, maintain our reputation and it provides you better training that benefits workplace safety and productivity in the long run.
What happens if I'm late or miss part of the training event?
Some bad news here... if you're late or miss any part of your Fed/Cal-OSHA General Industry Training, you will be dismissed from the live Zoom training, and NO refund will be issued. If you never attend (aka “no show”) or miss mandated “contact time” then no refund is issued. So if you know that you're going to be missing any part of the training beforehand, then you have seven (7) days before the training "start date" to receive a refund with a 25% FEE due to cancellation. For example, if you canceled on January 1st and the scheduled live event is happening on January 8th then you receive 75% of your enrollment tuition refunded back. If you cancel less than seven (7) days before the "state date" of the government compliance training then you will be issued a 50% refund and we apologize for this inconvenience. But due to the HIGH costs of delivering our Fed-Cal/OSHA General Industry training on our end, along with the physical "OSHA Completion Card" that we ship learners, dedicated time from our authorized trainers, etc. which is why we must have a cancellation fee policy in-place.
Can I get a refund for a training event that I'm enrolled in?
The refund amount varies... we understand that "life happens" and things can change. Scheduling conflicts may include unexpected meetings or other work obligations, absence from the usual workplace, personal or family illness, jury duty, etc. In case of death in the family, an unexpected call to military duty, state or national emergency, or natural disaster, every attempt will be made to ACCOMMODATE the learner and/or your organization. You can always request a refund and you will receive a refund minus administration fees if you request it before the MINIMUM required time before the scheduled "start date" (see below) otherwise the refund will be 50% of the total tuition paid. If a registered learner never attends (aka "no show") or misses any of the required hours of "contact time" during the live event, they will be required to completely re-start the live event and no refund is issued.

Live Virtual Training (Zoom Webinar)

7-Days Before the "Start Date" If you wish to cancel your "Live Virtual Training", you will receive a partial refund and an administrative fee of 25% of the total enrollment tuition that was paid will be levied if we receive the request seven (7) days notice BEFORE the online Zoom meeting "start date". Within 7-Days of the "Start Date" If you cancel a "Live Virtual Training" seven (7) days or less PRIOR to the event's "start date" will result in a 50% refund for each individual total enrollment tuition that has been paid.

Classroom-Based Training (Instructor On-Site)

30-Days Before the "Start Date" If your organization has scheduled a "Classroom-Based Training" where an instructor is traveling to deliver on-site at your specified location in thirty (30) or greater days prior to the event's "start date" you will receive a full refund. But we do levy an administrative fee of $497.00 USD that will be deducted from your refund along if any additional costs were incurred to cover the instructor’s travel, preparation, lodging, and any per diem expenses. Within 30-Days of the "Start Date" If you must cancel a "Classroom-Based Training" within thirty (30) days of the event's "state date" will result in a 50% refund of the total invoice paid along if any additional costs were incurred to cover the instructor’s travel, preparation, lodging and the per diem expenses.
A training event has no seats available, can I be waitlisted?
Yes! Just register to be on the waitlist and you will be notified if an open seat becomes available you will need to IMMEDIATELY register since everyone on the waitlist will be notified and you miss out RSVP'ing your spot, also check out some future dates where we may be offering the live event again on our calendar. Our waitlist functionality allows you to sign up so you're notified by email when an out-of-seats live event becomes available again. When a live event is switched from "No Seats" status to "Seats Available," or when even availability increases past a set limit, we will send all learners on the waiting list an email informing them that the live event has seats available, with a direct link to the live event to immediately enroll. Once this email is sent, our waitlist functionality REMOVES all learners from the waiting list for the specific live event. If the live event is subsequently switched back to "No Seats" or someone else on the waitlist enrolls before you have a chance, either way, the waiting list will be emptied and you need to immediately sign-up for the waitlist again.
Why do coupon discounts not work for training events?
Coupon code discounts do not work for live events... we do NOT provide discounts on any live events due to our instructor's time is extremely valuable when putting on training.
What exactly is Fed/Cal-OSHA General Industry Training?

Federal Occupational Safety & Health Administration (Fed/OSHA)

The Federal OSHA (Fed/OSHA) General Industry Training teaches cannabis workers about their rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint as well as how to identify, abate, avoid and prevent job-related HAZARDS. While some jurisdictions, employers, and unions require Fed/OSHA General Industry Training to fulfill their safety training goals. Workers must receive additional training on hazards specific to their job. The general industry training procedures provide instructions for Authorized Fed/OSHA Trainers. The procedures are designed to ENSURE consistency of classes and that students receive the best possible training. The Fed/OSHA training program requirements cover all Authorized OSHA Trainers for every cannabis industry worker and workplace safety training program.

California Occupational Safety & Health Administration (Cal/OSHA)

California-OSHA (Cal/OSHA) has adopted occupational safety and health standards that are considered more stringent than Federal OSHA’s baseline and, in some cases, the state program includes statutes regarding specific hazards that Federal OSHA does not address at all. The California State Plan covers ALL private sector places of employment within the state through the Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH), better known as Cal/OSHA, which improves the health and safety of workers in California. California administers the largest state OSHA plan in the nation and consistently exceeds its inspection goals to protect millions of workers each and every year.

Other OSHA State Plans

There are other "OSHA State Plans" that are OSHA-approved workplace safety and health programs operated by individual states or U.S. territories. There are currently twenty-two (22) "OSHA State Plans" covering BOTH private sector and state and local government workers, and there are six (6) "OSHA State Plans" covering only state and local government workers. State Plans are monitored by OSHA and must be at least as effective as OSHA in protecting workers and in preventing their work-related injuries, illnesses, and deaths.
Are you a Fed/Cal-OSHA Authorized Training Provider (ATP)?
Yes! Yet... it VARIES so much. As our instructors are Authorized Training Provider (ATP) we offer both the Fed/OSHA and Cal/OSHA General Industry Training, which are different. All employers in the cannabis industry, including those who cultivate, manufacture, distribute, sell, and test cannabis products, must take steps to PROTECT their workers from all health and safety hazards associated with their work. Our status as ATP also demonstrates that we go beyond a simple benchmarking exercise by providing consistently excellent training. We are proud to be an ATP for "all things" OSHA-related to ensure safe and healthful working conditions for workers by setting and ENFORCING standards and by providing training, outreach, education, and assistance for the cannabis industry. The designation recognizes the quality standards we adopt to ensure our training is produced and maintained to the highest quality standards. Each training is approved by an OSHA Training Institute Education Center (OTIEC) and regulations to ensure you are provided quality training.
How did your trainers become authorized by Fed/Cal-OSHA?

Federal-OSHA Authorized Trainer Requirements

To be eligible... to become an Authorized Federal-OSHA (Fed/OSHA) Trainer, a person must, at a minimum, meet the following prerequisites which require both training and experience: 1) Five (5) Years Safety Experience
  • Please note that "working safely" in the industry does not meet the industry safety experience requirement. A bachelor’s degree (or higher) in occupational safety and health or industrial hygiene from an accredited university, a Certified Safety Professional (CSP), or Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) designation, in the applicable training area, may be substituted for two (2) years of direct experience.
2) OSHA General Industry Training
  • To meet Authorized OSHA Trainer eligibility requirements, the OSHA #511 General Industry Occupational Safety and Health Standards must be completed that covers all standards required by the OSHA Training Institute Education Center (OTIEC).
Experience cannot be substituted for the training prerequisite component and OSHA does NOT issue waivers for these prerequisites. After satisfying the prerequisites, a person must complete OSHA #501 Trainer Course for the Fed/Cal-OSHA for General Industry. This includes knowledge and performance-based tests, BOTH of these must be completed. To remain current on relevant OSHA matters and ensure quality training, OSHA Authorized General Industry Trainers are REQUIRED to complete the OSHA #503 Update for General Industry Outreach Trainers course every four (4) years. The OSHA #501 General Industry Trainer Course provided by OSHA may also be used to maintain a trainer’s authorized status.

California-OSHA Authorized Trainer Endorsement

The California-OSHA (Cal/OSHA) Standards for General Industry were developed for the Code of Regulations (Title 8) General Industry standards and compliance. The OSHA-5119 Course also provides existing Authorized Federal-OSHA (Fed/OSHA) Trainers a specific ENDORSEMENT authorizing to teach 10- and 30-Hour Cal/OSHA General Industry Training. Cal/OSHA and Fed/OSHA established a partnership wherein Authorized Federal Outreach Trainers, who FULFILL additional eligibility requirements, can also teach Federal 10 and 30-Hour General Industry Training based upon the California Code of Regulations (Title 8).

    When is my Fed/Cal-OSHA Completion Card mailed to me?
    As soon as possible... our Authorized Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Trainers grant learners their official Department of Labor (DOL) "OSHA Completion Card" after successful completion of their training. The DOL provides cards to authorized trainers to issue to learners who complete one of our Authorized OSHA Trainer's programs. The 10-Hour and 30-Hour "OSHA Completion Cards" can only be issued by an Authorized OSHA Trainer and are the property of the learner who completed the training. Since these cards must be processed through the Department of Labor, cards can take up to ninety (90) days to be delivered (DOL is sometimes delayed mailing cards). We immediately provide a certificate of completion and a digital badge available for immediate download so learners can use this as temporary proof until your official "OSHA Completion Card" arrives via mail.
    How can someone verify my Fed/Cal-OSHA digital certificate?
    Easily! Each certificate is assigned a unique alphanumeric code. This unique code is printed at the bottom right of your certificate. You can VERIFY your certificate either by using the "Verify Tool" (click here) or by scanning the "QR Code" using your mobile phone's camera. 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 pieces of training - each with their OWN certificate - it would be time-consuming to visit every training to download all your certificates 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 all your ISSUED certificates and you can simply download them all at one (1) time. Note: We verify our Fed/Cal-OSHA General Industry Training was conducted in accordance with the Authorized OSHA Trainer Program requirements. Completion will be documented with OSHA Training Institute Education Center (OTIEC) and upon successful review of your training records, learner's "OSHA Completion Card" will be immediately issued via mail.
    How do I display your digital badge on my LinkedIn profile?
    It's simple! We utilize Badgr’s industry-leading credentialing solution to issue our digital badges so you can take your credentials with you, wherever you go, building a rich PICTURE of your lifelong learning journey that you have had training in the cannabis industry. You can easily share your digital badge on Facebook, Twitter, etc. and there are two (2) different ways you can share with LinkedIn - as a post to your profile's "Feed" or to the "Certifications" section. To enable Badgr (click here), you first need to create an account on then you will be able to CONNECT by going through the following steps to get started:
    1. In the user menu (top right), select "Preferences," then "Backpack Settings" under "Badges" (click here) in your account on our platform.
    2. Enter your Badgr user account email and password.
    3. Look in your mailbox for a verification email so you can copy and paste the link to verify the connection to your account on our platform.
    You can share badges on social media (click here) from the "Award Email" you receive or from your backpack since it provides ways to SHARE badges ("URL Link" and "Embed Code").
    Am I guaranteed to get my Fed/Cal-OSHA Completion Card?
    No! An "OSHA Completion Card" 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 receive your card, you better believe you're going to have to apply yourself to earn it! We have to certify that we conducted this training in accordance with the Fed/Cal-OSHA training requirements and we have to maintain the training records and provide records to OSHA upon request. We will physically mail you your United States Department of Labor (DOL) issues official "OSHA Completion Card" to learners who complete authorized both Fed/Cal-OSHA General Industry Training with a passing grade of seventy percent (70%) or higher. The DOL provides cards to trainers they issue to the learners who complete OSHA training. "OSHA Completion Cards" can only be issued by an Authorized OSHA Trainer and are the learner's property. Since these cards must be processed through the Department of Labor, cards can take up to ninety (90) days to be delivered. Green CulturED offers a temporary completion certificate available for immediate download so learners can use this temporary certificate as proof of their successful training completion until the "OSHA Completion Card" arrives in the mail. 10-Hour OSHA Completion Card 10-Hour Department of Labor (DOL) "OSHA Completion Cards" are awarded to learners who successfully complete Fed/Cal-OSHA 10-Hour General Industry Training requirements. 30-Hour OSHA Completion Card 30-Hour Department of Labor (DOL) "OSHA Completion Cards" are awarded to learners who successfully complete Fed/Cal-OSHA 30-Hour General Industry Training requirements.
    Does your training provide Continuing Education Units (CEU's)?
    Yes! But it depends on the live event type... the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) provides organizations guidance for conducting continuing education and training to benchmark Green CulturED's current operations to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) approved IACET continuing education and training standards. IACET's mission is to promote and enhance quality in all continuing education through the continuous improvement of all of the IACET criteria, principles, and standards. According to IACET's standards, one (1) Continuing Education Unit (CEU) equals ten (10) contact hours of learner interaction with the content of the learning activity, which includes classroom, self-paced training, pre/post assignments, and/or homework in support of a learning outcome. So, for example, our OSHA 10-Hour General Industry Training with cannabis-specific curricula would be the equivalent to one (1) Continuing Education Unit. A contact hour is one (1) clock hour of interaction between a learner and instructor, or between a learner and materials, which have been prepared to cause training. Contact implies a connection between a learner and a training source. For purposes of the CEU, that connection is two (2) ways, that is, the instructor or training source must monitor all the learner’s progress and/or provide some form of feedback to the learner during education. This definition applies to face-to-face interaction as well as virtual online training programs. The CEU will not be awarded for learning activities in which individuals are engaged in unplanned, unsupervised, or non-sponsored learning. The following learning activities are examples of types of activities to include when calculating "contact hours" for CEU's:
    • Engaging Training: Learning time led by an instructor and/or discussion leader.
    • Self-Paced Learning: Learner activities in which a learner is engaged in a planned program of learning where the learner’s progress is monitored & receives feedback.
    • Assessment & Feedback: Learner assessment & their own training evaluation.
    It is important that Green CulturED is responsible for calculating CEU's for learning events monitors the learning events for any changes. Reassessment should also take place in the event of a major change to training content, method of delivery, change in your equipment, software, or demographic audience. The calculation of CEU's will be consistent and accurate at all times to ensure learners are receiving the appropriate number of CEU's for training.
    How difficult is the final Fed-Cal/OSHA training assessment?
    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 live events require a 70% 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 live events... we are VERY different compared to other providers and our assessments reflect those differences.
    If I fail, can I re-take the Fed/Cal-OSHA training assessment?
    Yes! If you do not receive a passing grade (typically 70% or above is required) you may retake the assessment an unlimited number of times. After each failed attempt, you will receive immediate FEEDBACK why it was incorrect and provides you some additional learning.
    Do you offer dedicated live events for Fed/Cal-OSHA training?

    I was very interested and looked forward to taking the Green CulturED training. After completing three Bachelor degrees that didn't help me, I became a cannabis professional from my training. I learned everything I needed about medical marijuana dispensary, cannabis, budtending after completing my courses. I'm now cross-trained in all areas of the company and I'm now being requested to fill a management position.

    Green CulturED Headquarters (HQ) is hands down one of the best investments I have ever made for my staff training. Applying what my employees and I have learned has had a profoundly positive effect not just on my business but my understanding of the cannabis industry.

    Michael King / Green Bits Cultivation

    Green CulturED, in general, has been like a college experience. It gave me the opportunity to make money, and train while working. It helped me pay for my education while managing dispensary operations without taking out a $100,000 loan for a degree that I may or may not have used to land a boring job working 9 - 5.

    Jena Akers / Green Flower Dispensary

    I spent the last 15 years growing my cannabis consulting company and thought I knew it all. I even wrote articles on different social media and industry websites. But these certifications have given me so much more information, so much new leverage and maybe even more inspiration for my clients.

    Robert King / Cannabis Growth Corp

    Took a training course on cannabis industry and learned A LOT! After the courses I've been able to move forward with a cannabis industry career with a whole new set of skills, and it was with pleasure learning this way rather then doing things the long and dirty, figure it out as I go. Highly recommend!

    The safety training through Green CulturED is very convenient and well organized. The best safety training I have done. Very hands on focusing on the practical side of it, as well as best-practices for safety standards! They provided tips beyond the regular tested coursework, which is super valuable.

    Catrina Darcy

    There is always a difference when you learn from cannabis industry experts and when you learn from doers, learning the best cultivating practices from Green CulturED was as real as farming in the fields. It was practical and realistic, they are very knowledgeable about the whole process and also offer assistance whenever you need them. I really had a pleasant experience learning, my little cannabis garden is blooming and I highly recommend their training.

    Eddy Hunt / Lugo Enterprises

    It was really refreshing to come across your organization as I've seen so much hype surrounding the cannabis industry. Everything was put together well and easy to understand information, with facts for a change! The cannabis industry training that I received was particularly helpful to get the knowledge to start working in a dispensary. It answered many questions I had. Many thanks!

    Peter Thompson / Scent Success

    We live in a world where everything is computerized and information about virtually everything can be easily accessed online. I find to find this eLearning site very interesting, as it specifically covers the cannabis industry. Another thing I like about Green CulturED is the value added service of free training as it encouraged a starter, like myself, to learn more about the marijuana industry. This is really a great starting point if you are new to the cannabis world, keep learning while you earn a printable certificate or digital badge.

    Buck Carter

    The resources at are enormous. From videos to eBooks, every learning material they offer is well structured, clear and easy to follow. I have the cannabis industry basics and was mostly interested in medical marijuana regulations, as well as the biochemistry of this 'sacred plant.' I must admit that I'm blown away by the quality, value, and support I received from their free certificate program. If you're considering a career in the ever growing cannabis industry or just want to legally grow your own cannabis, then I strongly recommend you enroll for the free training program on the Green CulturED website; you will be glad you did.

    Pearl Andrews

    I signed up for Green CulturED hoping to improve my cannabis industry knowledge... But I left with vastly more. This is what Canada has been needing for the past twenty years. Finally a marijuana school worth going to. I loved every minute of it! Now I grow cannabis better than anyone I know. Your cannabis college is priced way less than the other options available in Canada and Green CulturED is a better program! Thank you GC!

    How would you describe your cannabis training? Underwhelming? Non-existent? If you said anything other than a "well-oiled machine," then you’re at the RIGHT place if you want to transform ordinary training into a well-developed solution.

    Is your training actually making a MEASUREABLE difference to you? I asked this question about my "learning experiences" when I got started in cannabis, I didn't like the answer. That's why we're here, so you'll always be a cannabis expert.

    In the spirit of "open-sourcing" our eLearning solutions you’ll find our ground-breaking training, industry strategies, and Ed-Tech to learn everything you need (or actually GROW your business) and much more... without all of the headaches.
