Responsible Cannabis Vendor Certification
Note: Need a government-specific “Responsible Vendor Training (RVT)” or an equivalent? If so (click here), wherever you operate, the compliance requirements are unique and we’re happy to create a custom RTV for your local jurisdiction.
Our Responsible Vendor Certification prepares you to effectively handle complex situations commonly found in the cannabis industry. Rules and regulations affect every part of the cannabis industry, from health and safety issues, data security, management responsibility, team member behavior, and everything in-between.
As the cannabis industry faces constantly shifting requirements, the challenge to mitigate your compliance risk, reduce exposure to fines and avoid criminal or civil charges has never been more important. This advanced Responsible Vendor Certification does not simply cover the “box-checking” exercise of compliance.
You will discover this Responsible Vendor Certification is designed to provide practical application and best practice procedures, so industry workers not only learn the basic requirements but can apply them in a manner that adds value to the business to provide a meaningful return on your industry training investment.
We strive to inspire employees to be responsible, aware, and knowledgeable about safe cannabis production, sales, and service. Protect yourself and your operation from risks and liabilities with our government regulatory and health department-approved curricula. Selling and serving cannabis involves many risks. Failure to act responsibly and proactively could result in fines, imprisonment, suspension of your license, increased insurance costs, or losing your business.

For anyone working in a cannabis business, there’s specialized knowledge that is the key to unlocking the industry’s most exciting opportunities. The cannabis landscape is complex, ever-changing, and unique. We prepare workers to operate in a licensed cannabis dispensary and introduce you to the basics of legally dispensing cannabis in a licensed setting. You will learn a critical overview of what it takes to run a cannabis business and the skills you will need to develop including risk analysis, scaling operations, and all the regulatory compliance.
Learn about the potential therapeutic uses, health risks of using cannabis, and effects caused by chemical compounds found in the plant. These different compounds in cannabis are called cannabinoids. You will discover how the most prevalent psychoactive cannabinoid that’s called Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) has various psychological and physiological effects on the body. THC is the only cannabinoid that you know for sure has clear intoxicating effects on its own, but you will discover that other cannabinoids can influence how THC affects your body.
Learn how cannabis poses certain risks to the health and safety of some consumers and others, especially if the consumer fails to use it responsibly. Some of the more common short-term and long-term adverse effects of cannabis are mentioned in this training to call your attention to the potential downside of using or abusing it. Cannabis can produce several undesirable effects and all these outcomes are transitory that arise particularly when the Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration is extremely high or anyone consumes too much.
You will learn that preventing and detecting diversion within the cannabis industry is a very serious issue. The ability of a business to cultivate, produce, or sell cannabis products can only be done with strict adherence to government regulations. Due to not complying with cannabis diversion regulations, there’s no chance of legally running a cannabis business without the fear of a forcible shutdown looming in the distance. Another aspect of diversion is checking for valid Identifications (IDs) to confirm age and prevent all underage access.
When working in the cannabis industry, you must never provide cannabis to anyone that’s exhibiting signs of being impaired. There is a physical as well as biological component to a cannabis use disorder. Learn how a person may see a symptom emerge, but not know where it places within the progression from recreational use to abuse to a cannabis use disorder. Most do not realize that cannabis use has been problematic, or even clinically significant so for this reason, it is especially helpful to know some additional signs associated with abuse.
The goal of checking for valid Identifications (IDs) is to confirm age to prevent underage access and stop the legal, financial, and social consequences of illegal consumption. This is a huge task given the large and increasing numbers of fake IDs on the market and the ease with which they can be obtained. Quality fake IDs are so like real IDs, and it’s hard for those checking IDs to tell the difference if they lack training. This becomes a very big compliance problem since workers don’t know what security features to look for and feel people’s ID.

We are sensitive to disabilities so we provide closed-captioning (sub-titles) for hearing-impaired and screen readers for visually-impaired individuals who want to learn. We have worked extensively to MEET these "accessibility" standards.
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.
