As Seen On

How It Works

Whether You’re Looking for a Place to Start Training Beginners on Your Team or Seasoned Veterans Wanting to Uplevel Their Skills, We Have Everything You Need to Get Cannabis Training DONE.

Step 1: Team & Training Evaluation

Is your training stuck in the mud? Just spinning its wheels? You don’t need more tactics… you don’t need more “shiny objects.” What you need is a new training PROCESS that produces predictable, sustainable, and profitable business growth.

We’ll utilize our proprietary eLearning solutions and strategies to assess your existing training strengths and potential gaps, both at the team- and the job-role level, so your total eLearning solution is truly CUSTOM to meet your unique business requirements.

And whether you choose to have each member of your team specialize in just specific training categories, or if you’d rather have your entire team cross-trained on some or even all… thanks to our SIMPLE, flat-rate pricing, you won’t blow your training budget.

Step 2: Design & Customize Learning Plans

A predictable training process was once unique to the top 1% of companies (Apple, Mcdonald’s, etc.)… something all competitive businesses NEED. You’re the boss. You choose who takes which training and in what order… but you don’t have to do it alone.

Our platform allows team leaders and business owners to curate and compile best-in-class Learning Plans by selecting from our training library, and you can always create your own, or pull from sources such as your HR employee handbook, SOPs, etc.

We work with you to create custom-tailored Learning Plans for each job role so your different teams take only the training they need, in the exact sequence you need to take them, reducing friction and accelerating your Return-on-Investment (ROI).

Step 3: Team Onboarding & Continuing Education

We develop a highly-customized platform so unlike Slack messages that disappear in seconds, or company-wide emails that never get opened, our solutions allow you to train on what MATTERS… without getting lost in all the “noise” of the day-to-day.

Use our platform for new job roles or onboarding recent hires with a practical, easy-to-use solution that guides anyone transitioning to a different position where NEW knowledge is required (and promotes change for your team in fun and engaging ways).

Working with you hand-in-hand to roll out the onboarding process and continuous training needed based on location, department, compliance, job roles, and other criteria for your team members… help cement a culture of GROWTH and learning.

Step 4: Team Dashboard & Training Analytics

Analytics and dashboards make it easy to measure the reach and IMPACT of your training. At a glance, see who is opening, clicking, and engaging with assigned Learning Plans to discover who is “all in,” who might be “at-risk” or just outright “disengaged.”

And thanks to the Learning Plan feature, team leaders and business owners can know who has taken what training, and who hasn’t (try doing that with email and Slack) so you can implement a CULTURE of “continuous learning” that’s right for your team.

One of our (many) mottos: A business is only as good as the tools at its disposal… that’s why we’ve developed our proprietary eLearning solutions to DEPLOY in your business. We’re here whether you want a quick win or a complete strategic overall.

Step 5: Platform Roadmap & Quarterly Training

This is when things get REALLY fun! Our team becomes an “extension of your team” to work with you tweaking any Learning Plan (based on team feedback) and integrating new training released from our Platform Roadmap to ensure that growth never stops.

We won’t leave you hanging! We have 30-, 60-, and 90-day check-ins along with quarterly training cycles… we’re always releasing NEW courses from our Platform Roadmap quarterly training ensures your team stays on track and exceeds goals.

Quarterly training gives your business a continuous optimization strategy that’s a proven “roadmap for success” helps you avoid menial, “lever-pulling” tasks, and keeps you focused on the one thing every business (and team) needs to succeed: GROWTH.

Learning Plans

Create Your Own Custom Learning Plans & Development Specific & Engaging Training Process for ALL the Different Job Roles That’s Right to “Up-Level” the Teams Within Your Business Operations.

Competency-Based Job Roles

Learning Plans are based on templates that train your team on their different job roles and even make cross-departmental training a breeze… so more work gets done FASTER by easily assigning members of your team based on their responsibilities.

Using Learning Plans enables you to stay up-to-date with compliance as well as design them for your different job roles so teams can develop the RIGHT competencies… convert “tribal knowledge” into training that teams will actually use.

  • Bad Decisions: eLearning decisions many times are uneducated, but you have us as an "extension of your team" so we WON'T offer you unnecessary options.
  • Limited Options: Other providers don't typically use an enterprise Learning Management System (LMS)... so you'll have unlimited solutions working with us.
  • Closed-Source: We believe in transparency (open-source) & use separate code-bases for our clients so you'll only see what's MEANINGFUL to your team.
  • Hidden Costs: There can easily be hidden costs with other providers to unlock functionality that you NEED in your eLearning solutions (but not with us).

Case Study

Here’s a Quick Case Study That Packs a Lot of Meaning Into Our BIG “Idea,” You Will See Where Our eLearning Solutions Will Make a Clear Impact On Your Team & Research to Backup How You Get an ROI.

How Your ROI Works…

Our “turn-key” eLearning solutions address what you need (but never thought of)… from your training challenges to business goals. What does it cost to get a Return-on-Investment (ROI), do you want 2x (DOUBLE) higher income per team member?

According to the “Τraining Industry Report” by Training Magazine, Fortune 500 companies spend $1,286 USD annually (that’s roughly $107 USD each month) annually for EACH team member’s professional development (we’re at least 50% less).

Like any investment into a business, it is going to COST some money now to get an ROI like that… but you will find that on average team members received 42.1 hours of training every year across the entire training landscape of Fortune 500 companies.

Easily 2x Your Profitability!

According to the Association for Talent Development, companies that offer comprehensive training programs have 218% HIGHER income ($$$) for each team member than companies without any formalized training for their development.

That’s actually MORE than 2x higher income… but it doesn’t stop there, they also enjoy a 24% higher profit margin. Also, let’s not forget about your time commitment that’s required to train teams is a far bigger investment than out-of-pocket costs.

It costs you 33% of a team member’s annual salary to hire a replacement if they ever leave your business according to Work Institute’s “Retention Report” and it was found that 75% of the time that team member(s) turnover was definitely PREVENTABLE.

What Does Inaction Cost You?

Let’s use Colorado as an example (since we’re based in Denver)… Headset, a cannabis industry data platform, reported a 62% TURNOVER rate for retail dispensary teams… turnover is expensive, but just how expensive is arguable, yet the costs are very real.

The RISK of having turnover costs in your business far outweighs other concerns, so you can put this into dollar ($$$) figures using Vangst’s “Cannabis Industry Salary Guide”… you’ll find the average hourly rates you’ll be paying your team members…

It is costing you anywhere from $9,187 – $59,400 each time a team member leaves (turnover costs below) and 75% of the time it’s PREVENTABLE. Gallup reports that 87% of “Millennials” say training is important and they are your workforce demographic.

Turnover Costs

It’s Your Choice, You Can Either Make 2x More Profitability Per Team Member or Continually Pay $9,187 – $59,400 Every Time They QUIT Their Job (Which Could Have Been Avoided 75% of the Time).

Platform Roadmap & Crowdsourcing

Step 1 – Contribute: We’re always creating new solutions… we’ve built a community-driven SYSTEM called our Platform Roadmap where you can request training that establishes a “baseline level” of knowledge that is meaningful to your business.

Step 2 – Prioritize: Our Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and Instructional Design team will prioritize your requests to TRANSFORM your team into a “machine” so they will always know exactly what to do… and customers start asking you to take their money.

Step 3 – Release: New training is instantly released for your team that’s pulled straight out of our Platform Roadmap… our community keeps us RELEVANT so you can access new eLearning solutions to increase profitability, reduce risk, and ensure compliance.

Instructional Design & Release Cycle

We aren’t journalists or “researchers.” Our Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and Instructional Design team are in-the-trenches DOERS who despise untested theory and the best way to learn is to roll up your sleeves and get your hands a little dirty.

What it takes for our team to produce one (1) hour of online training is anywhere from 90 – 240 hours (on average) to develop. This time is required for creating the script, learning activities, multimedia videos, etc., so this means MORE time and money ($$$).

If you assume an average hourly cost of $65 for Instructional Design, you wind up with a cost of $5,850 – $15,600 per training. In our experience, the COST for this type of training tends to be right in the middle so… around $10,725 per one (1) hour of training.

$10,725 Additional Value (per Training Released)

Frequently Asked Questions

Got Questions? Get Answers! Leverage Our HQ+ Enterprise as Your Total eLearning Solution for Your Business Where Training STICKS & Great Teams Get Built.

Our stated mission... is to train at least 1,000,000 individuals over the next five (5) years (while we know we can’t train that many at once), but by being an "extension of your team" and working with team leaders to reach this goal, we will be living out our MISSION every day. We also know that it’s harder than ever to succeed if you try to "go it alone," so let's get started helping each other today!

HQ+ is unlike any other "training" program you’ve experienced in the past! It is a full-service, end-to-end “training machine” designed to help you generate buyers from scratch and scale faster than you ever thought possible. This is an interactive experience where we’ll incorporate gamification into your training strategy, build your team's growth, and craft your quarterly training (every 90 days) plan PLUS we’ll be there with your team each step along the way to help you easily execute.

  • HQ+ is not another "training program." Yes, there is cannabis content and training, but at its heart, this is a "turn-key" eLearning solution where we will drag your team, even kicking and screaming if we have to, across YOUR finish line to meet the goals for your business.
  • HQ+ is not one size fits all. We’ll start by building a custom 90-day Learning Plan for your business, then help you choose the future Learning Plans and eLearning initiatives that you want to implement so you can accomplish your stated MISSION and business goals.
  • HQ+ is not another hack or tactic. Yes, we will give you access to dozens of "micro-learning" training and mastery certifications, but the ultimate goal of HQ+ Enterprise is to SLAY shiny object syndrome... we do not want to encourage that in your team members.

HQ+ Enterprise will give you EVERYTHING that you need to double (2x) team member's cannabis industry skills and expertise in your business in ninety (90) days or less (then again every quarter).

Here's the differences between HQ and HQ+ Enterprise... but in a "nutshell" basically, HQ is a one (1) user account that's made for team leaders to "up-level" their skills whereas HQ+ Enterprise is made for team training and businesses who will have multiple team members using our platform...

  • HQ: This is our top solution for developing team leaders in the cannabis industry and it's a single (1) user account on our platform. HQ is a rapid growth strategy where we provide unlimited access to 99% of our training library, but it does NOT provide you the Learning Management System (LMS) platform functionality required to upskill your entire team.
  • HQ+ Enterprise: Is our "turn-key" solution made for business-wide implementation for multi-user (2+) accounts where you'll BENEFIT from our suite of industry-leading eLearning solutions made for tracking your team’s training, manage team members, and ability to edit/assign your Learning Plans so you'll have everything all in one easy place! 

If any of the following describes you, then HQ+ Enterprise is likely a GOOD fit for your business:

  • Team Leaders & Managers: Who want to AVOID the painful training curves for their team members and discover a total eLearning solution "shortcut" to drive business success.
  • HR Professionals & Practitioners: Who feel the pressure to ENSURE training plans are strategic, yet need to address turnover related to a lack of professional development.
  • Regulatory & Compliance Officers: Who are looking to AUTOMATE the training process to kickstart their business' growth or take an already growing business to the next level.
  • C-Suite Executives & Business Owners: Who want to become true experts in the cannabis industry (HINT: If you’re a CEO or head of HR, this is the ultimate "turn-key" onboarding and "up-leveling" training solution for emerging leaders who are on your team right now).

HQ+ Enterprise is a total eLearning solution... for every aspect of your businesses in the cannabis industry. A well-trained team generates more sales, makes fewer mistakes, and contributes more deeply to your organization. So if you're interested in training your team members to MASTER the necessary cannabis industry skills to become an expert then you have found your new "home."

We regularly upgrade our LMS with new and IMPROVED features, including user interface improvements, administration experience, user-requested features, any necessary security patches, and more. You'll typically customize these four (4) features to meet your requirements: 

1. Customize Learning Plans

Design a training experience that is based on your team's job roles that will create behavior change in a fun, ENGAGING way. Learning Plans enable your team to stay up-to-date with the skills you require so that they can develop the right competencies and easily validate all of their training.

  • Create your Learning Plans using the right MIX of content and training such as videos and assessments so that you can provide the best learning experience for your users.
  • Develop recurring certifications to ensure you are up-to-date with compliance and ENCOURAGE your team to freshen their cannabis industry knowledge and skillsets.
  • Create Learning Plans to ENSURE a deep understanding of subjects by creating a combination of a hierarchical sequence of training that teams will need to complete.

2. LMS Platform Functionality

Your software needs to reflect your company structure by defining roles and hierarchies that automatically create reporting lines. Management rights and security permissions can help organize learners and STREAMLINE specific Learning Plans. Generating reports in a drag and drop interface and aggregating data can save time by scheduling specific reports automatically.

  • Create hierarchical levels such as departments, positions, locations, and different jobs roles in a tree structure that ALIGNS to the exact needs of your cannabis business.
  • Provide managers with the flexibility to control access, set conditional rules, assign Learning Plans, have VISIBILITY on training progress, and report on specific role-based teams.
  • Ensure the right levels of security for specific user groups such as team leaders in your training environment so they can configure LMS functionalities to meet their needs.
  • Build reports to narrow down your analysis to specific SEGMENTS such as locations, departments, and job roles by using pre-defined conditions, advanced filters, and sorting.
  • Produce CUSTOM reports so that you see the information you need in the exact way you need with drag and drop, instant preview, inline column editing, and aggregation.
  • Share your reports to ensure that your key internal and external stakeholders are up-to-date using an EASILY accessible format via the ad-hoc or our report scheduling tool.

3.  Platform Roadmap Releases

4. Custom LMS Tenant

Not to mention, with thousands of complimentary LMS tools and solutions available, it can be HARD to determine which solutions will be most effective for reaching your business goals. By working with us, you ensure a "best-of-breed" training plan that is designed to meet all of your goals.

You can learn more about... how other cannabis businesses IMPLEMENTED our HQ+ Enterprise solution in the "Case Studies & White Papers" (click here) section of our website for you to explore.

We are accredited training provider for... many government regulators actually, so for example, we're AUTHORIZED by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation to provide their "Responsible Vendor" training, Alaska Marijuana Control Board's "Marijuana Handler Permit," the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) along with many other recognitions.

We are dedicated to developing cannabis-specific Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) standards and providing internationally recognized training to guide cannabis businesses to ENSURE only safe, consistent, and quality cannabis products are available. Our designations recognize the quality standards we have adopted to ensure training produced maintains the highest standards possible.

All of our approved training has been accepted as conforming to STANDARDS and any related regulation, rules, and guidelines ensuring you are provided with eLearning solutions that meet real cannabis business needs. Our accreditations and authorizations demonstrate that we go beyond simple benchmarking by providing a consistently excellent solution to your cannabis business.

Obviously we can’t guarantee your success. No one can. But here’s what we can do. We can guarantee that you’ll get enough VALUE in the first 30 days, alone, to more than cover your investment for the rest of the year. It could happen in your first week when you crystalize your 90-day Learning Plan. Or maybe you’ll get a critical question answered on your very first Learning Plan that breaks through a major barrier. Or maybe you’ll gain early access to some of our proven "micro-learning" and mastery certifications, and that’s what covers your investment in our solutions.

We don’t know what it will be, because there are so many ways you can win, but we’re so confident that your investment will be covered in the first 30 days that we’ll refund every penny if it doesn’t happen. In other words, you risk nothing. Either your investment is covered in 30 days, or you cancel and pay nothing. It’s as simple as that. You have nothing to lose, and so, so much to gain. So join today, together we’ll build and execute a solution to at least double your team's profitability.

We often suggest... using one of our case studies or white papers to highlight the value of HQ+ for your team with your stakeholders to SUPPORT budget approval. You can learn about how businesses use our eLearning solutions on our "Case Studies and White Papers" page (click here).

We accept all payment methods... you can use ANY major credit/debit cards and we also accept checks or ACH Bank Transfers that are payable by invoice so schedule a demo to get started today!

Monthly or Annually. You can choose to be on a month-to-month or annual plan for the HQ+ Enterprise. We HATE contracts and never want you to feel "locked-in," so we like the idea of having to earn your business each and every month or year. So you can start and stop, or make changes to the number of users on your plan at any time, see our "Terms and Conditions" (click here) for details.

Billed immediately... annual plans and monthly plans are billed immediately then we'll make a change to your plan so at the end of your paid period it covers any NEW user(s) added into the next billing period. For example, if you're using HQ+ Enterprise and you add one (1) user to your account in a given month, your payment method on file would be charged for the additional user immediately then you would have that new user incorporated into your next payment period too.

We've made it easy! You can upgrade, downgrade, or cancel the number of users on your plan at ANY TIME and if you decide to change up your eLearning solutions, charges from changing your plan to a different pricing tier in the middle of a billing cycle will be prorated during that period.

We think you and your team will love HQ+ Enterprise... but to get a full refund, submit a refund request within thirty (30) days of your payment. Our team will process your refund right away with NO questions asked. Any certificates earned within the thirty (30) days will be revoked if you decide to refund within that period, but for information review our "Terms and Conditions" (click here).

We take privacy seriously... and COMPLY with all General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), etc. laws, find details in our "Privacy Policy" (click here).
