Dispensary Technician Certification

Duration: 1 Month Enrollment: Forever Format: 100% Online Audience: Retail Dispensary

Overview

Become a certified Dispensary Technician...and pave your way to success today. Dispensary Technicians (also known as a “Budtender”) work in both medical and recreational dispensaries and play a variety of roles for the customer. You must play the role of an educator; working with the patient or customer to find the strain that best suits their needs or educating consumers on the laws surrounding its use. Whether you’re new to the role or have been a Dispensary Technician for a while, our certification training will give you the tools you need to become a well-known and approachable expert for your clients. We train you on all the important aspects of cannabis so that you can provide education to customers as well as compassionate recommendations for the patients that you serve. Education is a powerful tool for you to attract new customers, increase positive community relationships, and ensure the safe operation of the dispensary. Your customers have a wide variety of needs, and you need specialized knowledge to help them no matter where their needs fall. You will receive the training for the most popular position in a cannabis dispensary, the Dispensary Technician. As the industry is rapidly growing in legitimacy, our training will provide you with the skill-set and knowledge needed to succeed in this position. Our training and certification curriculum will equip you with the knowledge necessary to be a valuable member of the dispensary team. Budtenders must stay abreast of trends in the industry, as well. With the expert-level knowledge, you will gain in our Dispensary Technician Certification, you will be better equipped to spot and foresee trends, and pass that benefit on to your client, business, or employer. You know as well as we do that this industry is becoming increasingly competitive.

Be A Better Cannabis Industry Professional With Lab+

Our Platform

1. Complete Training

Whether you’re a beginner looking for a place to start or a seasoned industry worker looking to uplevel your skills, we have everything you need to get training DONE in the cannabis industry... we provide everything a modern learner needs.

Our training video content VARIES in length depending on the topic... allow 45 to 60 minutes to complete each "micro-learning" module. You can choose from any one of our trainings to start building a SOLID foundation for your knowledge.

The training levels are beginner to advanced, they come with all relevant videos, downloadable handouts, module assessments and certificates. And we're always updating our training (so you’re always steps ahead of the competition).

2. Passing Grade

Our assessments aren’t tricky, but they do require that you know the information if you want to pass. At the end of each "mico-learning" module, you will take a BRIEF assessment to ensure you understand the what's covered in that training.

A passing grade of 80% is REQUIRED for the majority of our training, and you can retake the assessment as many times needed to receive a passing grade (they include immediate feedback so you'll know why the answer was correct/wrong).

The assessments are not timed, and they consist of multiple-choice and true/false questions. Ideally each "micro-learning" module and assessment should be taken in one sitting, but your answers are SAVED so you can finish it at a later time.

3. Display Certificate

Once you have completed all the required assessments, you will then be able to save, print or download your certificate and/or digital badge to SHOW that you have been certified in a new skill. Upon successful completion, you will receive:

  • A digital, printable certificate of completion (all training) suitable for framing & assigned a unique code when issued so it can be validated.
  • A digital badge (for certifications only) that can be hosted on your website, email signature and LinkedIn profile to build creditability.
  • Status and recognition of you cannabis industry skills & expertise.
  • Best of all, when a client or employer views your certificate and/or badges, they’ll be taken to our site to verify your training is authentic.

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.

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!

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.

Wonderful Platform

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.

A Breath of Fresh Air

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!

Valuable Industry Knowledge

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!

Blown Away By Quality Of Training

The resources at greencultured.co 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.

Very Interesting – Learned Everything!

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.

The Best Cannabis Industry Community... PERIOD.

Our Membership Community is Made Up of Ten (10's) of Thousands (1,000's) Skilled Cannabis Experts Who Are Ready at Any Time, Day or Night, to Make BIG Changes within the Cannabis Industry.

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:

Badge Backpack: www.Learn.GreenCulturED.co

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.

How To Share Badge: www.Badgr.com

You can share badges on social media from the "Award Email" you will receive or from your Badgr backpack since it provides additional ways to share badges including "URL Link" and "Embed Code."

Message From Our Founder

Be honest… How would you describe your cannabis industry training? Underwhelming? Disorganized? Under-Trained? Non-Existent? Well if you said anything other than, “A well-oiled machine,” you’ve come to the RIGHT place.

Assuming you are apart of a team, it’s likely a loosely assembled group, all scrambling around completing tasks, updating everyone on NEW regulations, running in-person training, completing compliance requirements, and doing their best to "figure it out"… without necessarily knowing what anyone else is doing.

They’re busy. And they try hard. But are they really getting anything done? Is their work making a MEASURABLE difference to your company? When I asked this question about my own company, I didn’t like the answer. That’s why I created our solutions so you’ll be able to grow a dedicated, coordinated team.
