Retail Cannabis Academic Program

The Cannabis Dispensary Operations program provides managerial knowledge and assists with dispensary operations in alignment with state and federal laws that regulate cannabis distribution to clients. The program prepares students to work to oversee a licensed cannabis dispensary. Students should acquire skills to interact with and educate cannabis clients in a regulated environment and the foundational knowledge to pursue additional careers in the cannabis industry.

Learn to navigate state and federal cannabis laws, provide expert guidance to clients, and oversee a licensed cannabis dispensary. Understand the regulations and opportunities in transportation, logistics, and supply chain management. Gain the expertise to securely transport and track cannabis between business licenses. Most importantly, expand your career horizons.

In addition to completing all micro-learning modules and assessments, students are required to complete out-of-class assignments that are “offline”. These assignments include but are not limited to reading, exercises and problem-solving, projects, research, papers, and presentations. A student can anticipate out-of-class activities that equals about two (2) hours for every one (1) hour of video-based training and upon successful completion students could seek or obtain entry-level employment in the cannabis industry.

This program is asynchronous, meaning students do not meet for class at specific times; instead, students complete their weekly assignments, quizzes, tests, and discussions as their schedule dictates. Students participate in their micro-learning modules over the course of fifteen (15) weeks and should expect to commit nine (9) hours weekly to complete video-based training and apply what they studied each week.

Students must possess a high school diploma or recognized equivalency certificate (ex. GED) and pass a Digital Learning Readiness Assessment. Students who will not be twenty-one (21) years old by the time they graduate from a program are not advised to enroll due to a potential inability to find employment in the cannabis field in their jurisdiction.

Our dedicated direct hire team is at the forefront of connecting top talent with leading businesses in the cannabis industry. With a deep understanding of the unique requirements and regulations of the cannabis sector, our team specializes in identifying and placing qualified professionals across various jobs and roles, from cultivation and extraction to retail and compliance.

“Gainful Employment” refers to where a student receives steady work post-graduation, so students must be interviewed by university admissions to determine if they have the maturity, motivation, commitment, and dedication to succeed in the cannabis industry. Students who have been convicted of a crime that may affect their ability to be eligible for employment in their chosen field may be denied admission.

Students seeking employment in this field who “touch the plant” must be twenty-one (21) years or older to comply with regulations regarding age and must pass a criminal background check. With a deep understanding of the unique requirements and regulations of the cannabis sector, our team specializes in identifying and placing qualified professionals across various jobs and roles, from cultivation and extraction to retail and compliance.

Using 1EdTech standards-based learning tools (ex. LTI™, etc.) & content standards (ex. SCORM, etc.) that have make interoperability a reality by providing an open, trusted & innovative "digital learning marketplace" for educators and Educational-Technology (Ed-Tech) providers like us.
We provide a simple path forward for universities who need cannabis curriculum that's scientifically-based with references, backed by 1,000+ research studies & industry expert-citations.
By using our Ed-Tch expertise, we'll become an "extension of your team" & a total eLearning solutions using our "rich integrations" between your LMS to utilize our curriculum.
Educational-Technology (Ed-Tech) Options
Solution #1: University LMS (LTI™ Integration)

LMS Platforms: 200+ Supported

Version: 1.3 & LTI™ Advantage

Universities utilize our cannabis curriculum via “streaming like Netflix” directly into your Learning Management System (LMS) which will enhance students’ experience and streamline their learning. By enabling our Learning Tool Interoperability (LTI™) integration directly into the university’s LMS, it’ll provide a flexible combination of learning resources in an assessment-rich and collaboration-rich environment for university students.

The LTI™ standard prescribes a way to easily and securely connect learning applications and tools with platforms like LMS, portals, and learning object repositories in your LMS or the “Green CulturED LTI™ Cloud”, in a secure and standard manner and without expensive, custom programming. Using LTI™, if you have an interactive assessment application or virtual chemistry lab, it can be securely connected to your LMS with a few clicks.

The LTI™ creates a secure connection and confirms students’ authenticity while it adds features like the exchange of assignment and grade data between our assessment tools and the university LMS grade book. LTI™ is comprised of a “central core” and “optional services” to add functionality and implement features that support key learning activities. Optional functionalities include the provisioning of usernames and roles so it can intelligently address the student on launch, and the exchange of assignments from the university’s LMS to an assessment tool and the subsequent scores back to a central gradebook.

Platform: Moodle™ Learning Management System (LMS)
Version: Latest 4.x (2-Upgrades / Year)

Our Moodle Learning Management System (LMS) multi-tenancy hosted-option provides universities with where students and courses can be precisely assigned. Students from one university can’t see users from another, its designed to allow tenant-specific devolution of administration tasks, so program managers have control over students, courses and certificates, and can also access reporting functionality in a hierarchical manner.

Green CulturED offers a unique method of flexible access to courses. A university administrator can create a license for any student, allowing access to one or more courses, defining uses, shelf-life, access timescales and more. When assigning licenses to students, it’ll enroll them on every allocated course for that license. A pool of courses can be allocated to that license, or one license allocation grants access to all courses specifically assigned to that license.

Using enhanced management tools, Green CulturED picks up where Moodle drops off. With automatic course life-cycle for re-certification settings, course sharing options, prescriptive learning paths and periodic activity release through micro-learning, we can help you organize and automate your courses to your exact specifications. A university can create a license for any company, allow access to one or more courses, and define uses, shelf-life and access timescales.

Semester Credit Hour (SCH) - The Carnegie Unit

The “Carnegie Unit” and the “Student Hour” (aka “Credit Hour”) came about during the early 20th century to standardize the collegiate educational experience by the Carnegie Foundation providing retirement pensions (TIAA-CREF) for university professors. It was established as a strictly time-based reference for measuring educational attainment used by universities and “Credit Hours” were established for collegiate attainment.

The Carnegie Foundation also established that “college work” would include a minimum of four (4) years of study. A “Credit Hour” is equal to fifty (50) minutes of instruction time for a student per one (1) week for a semester (usually 14 – 16 weeks). It’s important to note that the “Carnegie Unit” is a “Rule-of-Thumb” which suggests each hour of instruction requires two or more (2+) hours of “indirect learning” outside the classroom.

Some universities do not use the semester as the basis of their academic calendar but use other academic terms, such as the “Quarter” or “Trimester” system. Most institutions give credit for short sessions that occur between standard semesters. In these cases, the term’s length is shortened from fifteen (15) weeks in a “Traditional Semester” to around ten (10) weeks for a “Quarter Semester”, and as short as four (4) weeks.

Must Have One (1) "Student Hour" Of Direct Instruction & Two (2) Hours Minimum Of Out-Of-Class Work Each Week Over Fifteen (15) Weeks For "Traditional Semesters" & "Trimester" Hour Of Credit Or Ten To Twelve (10 - 12) Weeks For One-Quarter (1/4) "Credit Hour"...OR...​
An Equivalent Amount Of Work Is Required For Other Recognized Academic Activities.
Academic Calendars
"Traditional" Semester
Academic System
"Standard" Semester
Most college and university courses are three Semester Credit Hours (SCH) or 45 - 48 contact hours, so they usually meet for three hours per week over a 15-week semester.
"Quarter" Semester
Academic System
"Quarter" Semester
The Code of Federal Regulations defines the conversion of credit hours to clock hours as a quarter hour must include at least 20 clock hours of instruction.
"Trimester" Semester

"Trimester" Semester
In short sessions, including the "Trimester" system, the student continues to receive credits using the standard definition of the student hour. The adjustment occurs since students meet more often or for longer periods of time.

International Accreditation For Continuing Education & Training (IACET)

The International Accreditors for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) originally developed the Continuing Education Unit (CEU) and continues to uphold high educational standards through its rigorous accreditation process. This accreditation ensures that  CE providers comply with the ANSI/IACET 1-2018 Standard for Continuing Education and Training, and maintain quality instruction.

The ANSI/IACET Standard provides a comprehensive framework to evaluate the quality of learning processes in continuing education and training programs. It covers everything from the initial planning stages to the final outcomes, ensuring that all aspects of program development adhere to high-quality standards across nine recognized categories. This creates consistency and standardization over various industries .

This standard focuses on the development process rather than the content itself, allowing for adaptability across various disciplines and industries. It is recognized globally as a benchmark for excellence in continuing education. Achieving accreditation from IACET enhances a provider’s market presence and demonstrates a serious commitment to high-quality education and industry growth through consistency.

Continuing Education & Training Standard (ANSI/IACET 2018-1)

The ANSI/IACET™ 2018-1 “Standard for Continuing Education and Training” defines a proven model for developing effective and valuable continuing education and training (CE/T) programs. Because the 2018-1 Standard focuses on how continuing education and training programs are developed, not what they cover, it provides a framework of best practices that can be applied across disciplines and industries.

The ANSI/IACET™ 2018-1 Standard is a universal program for learning process excellence and IACET approves education providers that meet strict continuing education guidelines. IACET recognition is the standard students seek for quality when they choose a provider as it defines a proven model for developing effective and valuable Continuing Education and Training (CE/T) programs.

The ANSI/IACET Standard also emphasizes the importance of continually reviewing and improving education and training, to ensure the development of quality programs that meet consumer needs. The ANSI/IACET Standard measures all aspects of a CE/T provider’s program development across nine internationally recognized categories ensuring standardization and best practices overall.

ADDIE
Design System

The ADDIE model, standing for Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation, is a well-regarded Instructional Systems Design (ISD) framework used widely among instructional designers and training developers Initially developed by Florida State University for military training, the model supports analyzing learning needs, which is essential when adopting standards such as the ANSI/IACET™ for Continuing Education and Training (CE/T) providers. 

Originally, ADDIE was structured to sequentially complete each phase before advancing to the next, encompassing several steps within its five core phases. However, over time, practitioners have refined the model, making it more dynamic and interactive compared to its initial hierarchical setup. By the mid-1980s, the model evolved into the format commonly used today based on years of trial and research.

The genesis of ADDIE traces back to the mid-1970s, rooted in concepts developed for the U.S. military. The Center for Educational Technology at Florida State University collaborated with the U.S. Army to develop what would become the Interservice Procedures for Instructional Systems Development (IPISD). This model was intended for broad military application for the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps.

ADDIE Model Has Become Widely-Used & Frequently Modified Practice Within The Private Sector, Especially For Compliance Training & Learning Events That Are Not Time-Sensitive
An Instructional Design (ID) Method Defines How To Organize The Whole Design Process As Methods Are Tied To Specific ID Models Based On Learning & Teaching Theory.

Competency-Based
Education (CBE)

The IACET™ sets the direction for Competency-Based Education (CBE) using the 1EdTech™ standard Competencies and Academic Standards Exchange (CASE). This standard ensures a uniform approach to sharing information about educational competencies, skills, and academic standards in an accessible, machine-readable format. These standards are critical for fields like learning and talent management.

IACET™ is dedicated to leading in adaptive learning strategies to match the pace of global shifts. The transformation in learning driven by technology, demographic changes, and globalization requires a move towards more dynamic learning formats. From adaptive learning to eLearning and micro-learning, alongside traditional classroom settings, these modalities are being optimized to cater to learner preferences.

Focused on ensuring that regardless of the chosen approach, IACET™ ensures the educational experiences provided are targeted to improve both individual and organizational performance. By using competencies as a consistent guide, IACET™ navigates through changes and aids in making informed, lasting decisions in educational strategies providing competency requirements and referencing commonly used processes.

IACET™ Competency-Based Education (CBE) Guidelines Focus Competency Mastery & Concrete Skills That's NOT Time-Based As Current Continuing ANSI/IACET 2018-1 Training Standard Focuses On Time Spent During Learning Activities.
This Will Be A Shift For Universities & Reflects Our NEW World Of On-Demand, Adaptive, Micro-Learning Plus Other Transformational Trends.
Competency Mastery
Assessing Progress
CBE Framework
Assessing Progress
In a CBE program, educators must assess students’ progress frequently and accurately to determine whether they’ve mastered the material. With an LMS, educators can create a variety of assessment types to suit situational needs.
Providing Feedback
CBE Framework
Providing Feedback
Feedback is a key component of CBE programs. An LMS can help automate and streamline parts of the process by automatically grading assignments and tests. Plus, it can provide valuable data to help educators tailor their instruction so they can better meet the needs of learners.
Personalizing Learning
CBE Framework
Personalizing Learning
An LMS can also be used to create individualized learning paths for students. Educators can create different content modules for students depending on their needs and abilities and provide targeted interventions.
Accessible Education
CBE Framework
Accessible Education
With an LMS, learners can get 24/7 access to course content. This is especially important for those who work full time or have other commitments that make it difficult for them to attend in-person classes or stick to a synchronous program.
Scaling Programs
CBE Framework
Scaling Programs
One of the biggest challenges with CBE programs can be delivering individualized instruction on a school-wide scale. Educational technologies including an LMS can help schools enhance and augment the work educators are doing, grow the scope of their reach, and create a cohesive shared learning environment.

OpenBadge™ Standards
1EdTech™

OpenBadge™, created by 1EdTech™, is designed as an open-source solution that promotes compatibility and interoperability among various Educational-Technology (Ed-Tech) standards for digital credentials. This framework is part of a broader effort to standardize how achievements are recognized digitally. Furthermore, IACET™ contributes its experience to the digital badging ecosystem.

To further refine the digital badge system, the IACET™ Open Digital Badging Taskforce developed a taxonomy for digital badging. This taxonomy categorizes different types of digital badges to streamline the recognition process. It aims to assist decision-makers in quickly and accurately identifying the value of various badges, which can sometimes be automated based on the type of badge.

The integration of open digital badging with the IACET™ “1-2018 Standard for Continuing Education and Training” highlights its relevance to modern educational standards, which include detailed record-keeping and transcripts. Digital badging naturally extends these requirements by providing a digital record of achievements that can be easily accessed and verified with the challenge of verifying authenticity.

Digital Badging Can Be Complex, But OpenBadge™ Standards Makes It Easy By Creating Interoperability To Accelerate Student Goals With A Educational-Technology (Ed-Tech) Solution That Validates Competencies, Drives Engagement, Improves Completion & Increases Enrollment.
These Ecosystems Support Communities With Skills-Aligned Micro-Credentials & Stackable Pathways.

Cannabis Curricula That’ll Meets Academia Standards

Our Accredited Academic Programs Are Based Upon Adult-Learning Theory Bast Practices & We Partner With Leading Industry Experts (ex. PhDs, MDs, JDs, etc.),

Help Students Land Their “Dream Job” Working in the Cannabis Industry by Bolster Online Learning Opportunities That’ll Expand Richer-Learning Curriculum & Empower Staff to Stay-Current.

Graduate Opportunity

The cannabis job market is experiencing unprecedented growth, yet there exists a shortage of qualified professionals ready to fill these new roles. We’ve partnered with top universities across the country to provide cannabis education that will help prepare you for a rewarding cannabis career. Whether you already work in the industry and want to level-up your job skills, or you want to transition into a cannabis career, these programs will help you gain the knowledge and skills you need to be successful in this fast-evolving industry.

Institutional Curriculum

We’ve built a robust online learning platform from which colleges and universities can benefit. Online learning is increasingly used as a complement to institutional curriculums. Common use cases include replacement of textbooks and “outsourcing” lectures, allowing more classroom time for discussion and practice. Faculty invests because it meets the expectations of students today, by providing a social, collaborative and relevant experience that supports macro and micro learning.

Our Certificate Programs

Our programs help people succeed in the Cannabis Industry. Green CulturED partners with universities to offer the highest quality educational programs in Cannabis Medicine & Healthcare, Cannabis Enterprise, Cannabis Agriculture, and Cannabis Law & Policy. We provide a market-driven curriculum that is facilitated by top cannabis experts to offer paramount instruction from within the cannabis industry. Our cannabis education programs prepare learners to succeed across specific sectors of the cannabis industry today.

The Healthcare & Medicine Certificate advances the knowledge and practice of cannabis medicine for health care providers and allied health professionals by improving their understanding of cannabis’s medical properties. Course 1 provides a general introduction to the cannabis plant and its use and across history and cultures. Course 2 provides a baseline understanding of cannabis’s medical properties, human physiology and the metabolic pathways for cannabis, the ethics and law for cannabis healthcare practitioners, partnering with integrated medical centers, and client care. Course 3 is a deeper dive into Cannabinoid physiology and pharmacology; the final three modules conform to clinical education models for both human and animal medicine: learners are immersed in specialized disease states and their respective cannabis medical interventions. Learners create a case study and healthcare business portfolio that includes a medical leaflet.

The Law & Policy Certificate is cross-disciplinary, grounding learners in the cannabis industry’s rapidly changing legal landscape and offering the opportunity to deep dive into law as it pertains to a specific sector in the cannabis industry. Course 1 provides a general introduction to the cannabis plant and its use and across history and cultures. In Course 2, learners begin with a review of the general history and current practices in Statutory and Administrative Law at the local, state and federal levels. We then explore legal practices concerning Professional Responsibility, Licensing, Corporate Policy, Banking, Accounting, Tax, and Insurance, examining case studies for each area of focus. Course 3 introduces learners to Intellectual Property, Advertising and Packaging, Environmental Law, Real Estate Law, Ethics, Investment Law, Industrial Hemp, International Trade, Labor and Employment, and Dispute Resolution. Learners self-select for a disciplinary focus in agricultural, entrepreneurial, or healthcare law and cannabis, and write a policy statement and case study in that specialized area.

The Agriculture & Cultivation Certificate prepares learners to actively engage in the complex process of cannabis plant production, management, and cultivation. This program is specially designed to provide both novice and experienced growers with insight regarding every aspect of the cultivation process from seed to sale. Learners explore cannabis botany, the growth cycle, environment management, sustainability challenges, cultivation, property rights, and how to succeed in the cannabis agricultural sector. Learners elect to specialize in the indoor or outdoor grow track. The course of study includes immersive and experiential learning opportunities to work hands-on with hemp or dioecious plants and visit agricultural settings to observe best practices with a range of industry experts, and culminates in a portfolio project that learners can use to apply their learning in a cannabis agricultural setting.

The Business & Enterprise Certificate explores the lifecycle of the cannabis industry from seed to sale. Drawing on the talent and experience of industry leaders in Cannabis Business and Enterprise, learners will be able to anticipate and adapt to trends in cannabis product innovation, behavioral economics, financial strategy, marketing, and challenges with sustainability. Course 1 provides a general introduction to the cannabis plant and its use and across history and cultures. In Course 2, business fundamentals of cultivation, processing and extraction, manufacturing, lab setup and protocols, distribution, retail and delivery, and licensing are addressed. Course 3 introduces challenges with real estate, regulatory compliance, marketing, sales, accounting and finance, human resources, and innovation and investment. The course of study is designed to be experiential and immersive, and involves the review and development of case studies, field work, internship or externship opportunities, and a final portfolio project grounded in a self-selected specialization in HR, sales, marketing, and finance.

Our programs are designed for educators and students

Green CulturED’s ethical imperative is to supply expert education that can be applied in a real-world setting, so we embrace design thinking methods that promote theory-to-practice learning. Design Thinking is an evidence-based learning framework in which our learners move from the more concrete to the more abstract, and from the more empirical to the more innovative. This curricular framework helps learners to reduce cognitive load; to retain information through spacing and interleaving; to master lateral and vertical thinking; and to focus on holistic, trans competent skills that will prepare them for actionable careers in the cannabis industry.

We use best practices in Universal Design, Experiential and Adaptive Learning, and Inclusion & Diversity (TILT) to build content for a broad spectrum of teaching and learning styles. Our curriculum is developed by a team of instructional design and interactive technology experts, and is rigorously reviewed and refreshed at least twice annually. Importantly, our framework undergirds and reinforces the general tools needed for academic success in any discipline, including time management, good research and note-taking skills, analytical thinking, working in teams, and leveraging digital and analog technologies.

Before creating content, we review the current policies published by the WASC and NECHE accreditation agencies. Our certificate programs are also individually checked against accreditation standards for continuing education in their fields (the American Bar Association’s Continuing Legal Education sector, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education, Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs, and American Society for Horticultural Science).

We follow the same procedure that most research universities’ Academic Senates use for vetting new course and program proposals: Knowledge content is co-created by subject matter experts and learning theorists; and curricular content is co-designed with the subject matter experts, learning theorists, and a team of instructional designers, instructional technologists, and media producers to develop the learning outcomes, multimodal resources, rubrics, and formative and summative assessments around the knowledge content. Our materials are frequently compared against syllabi, resources, and assessment materials from courses being offered in sibling disciplines at top public and private universities; this ensures that our courses accommodate a broad spectrum of learners, and that they meet the rigor and standards expected at the most highly respected institutions of learning in our country.Partnering With Green CulturED

"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 very boring, normal job working 9 - 5."

"Super happy that we found an answer to our multi-store training problem. Since I can delegate team leaders from different dispensaries, they can assign training when they need it. I don't have to be hands-on with new hires and certificate renewals but still have the option to access the training records when I need to. Thanks Green CulturED!"

"My delivery drivers struggle communicating with the dispensaries sometimes. The private messaging option allows my drivers to easily message the store, put urgent notifications into the group feed, and keep all of the transportation messages in one place. This really helps us if we need to review any communication between order notes."

"In Massachusetts, RVT is required for all of our employees. Green CulturED's training format, automated emails, and easy-to-access certificates make it really easy for our compliance team to stay organized and retain the records that confirm we trained our employees. We wouldn't be able to do that without the manager portal and team dashboard."
