Easily onboard new team members by accelerating their learning curve so they can be productive within your operation earlier by investing in their knowledge that’s essential to succeed.

This onboarding program is designed to satisfy regulatory requirements in any regulated jurisdiction/market and “agnostically” meet compliance training needs for new hires in the cannabis industry. This program is very structured to create a streamlined, sustainable onboarding experience and professional growth that’ll simplify all those Human Resources (HR) processes.

Make this your “crash course” training program for all new hires who have little to no experience so your workplace has a “baseline level” of knowledge. This helps to establish a “company culture” of safety to ensure compliance requirements happen automatically. Our off-the-shelf onboarding program is highly engaging and helps your new team members learn essential topics to succeed in the commercial cannabis industry.
