They’ll handle a wide range of tasks when onboarding new team members, this certification is used by Multi-State Operators (MSOs) to “Mom-and-Pop” shops to ensure teams are properly trained.

Many cannabis enthusiasts seeking a career change enroll in this certification to demonstrate a broad knowledge base of cannabis products and concepts when applying for a new position.
