Cannabis Consultant Annual Certification
Authorized: Green CulturED is an accredited Medical Cannabis Consultant Certification training provider by the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) (Approval: #XXXXX) to certify medical cannabis consultants in the state.
This certification is delivered in a “Choose Your Adventure” format (so you’ll get access to over 25+ trainings) to meet DOH’s mandated continuing education requirements of ten (10) total hours annually. In addition, these “adventures” will meet all of the Medical Cannabis Consultant renewal training that is required by all Washington laws. Our Medical Cannabis Consultant Annual Certification provides the ability to choose any “adventures” (ex. “acceptable topics” by the DOH, etc.) that lets you decide what “adventure” you want to learn more about.
We’ve created a five (5) hour Washington state laws “adventure” and simply put, the “other adventures” are 100% focused on your interests so you’ll choose the topics to complete the last five (5) continuing education hours. Acceptable types of compliance training topics include any science-based information for medical cannabis, issues with addictions, substance abuse, different communication skills, professional ethics, and values. Also, the DOH will send all certificate holders a courtesy renewal notice that includes the date continuing education is required.
Start the renewal process early to avoid an expired Medical Cannabis Consultant certificate since certifications will expire on your birthday every year. A courtesy renewal notice will be mailed to your address on record from the DOH so you always must keep your address current. This certification is accredited by the DOH and fulfills all continuing education requirements for a certified Medical Cannabis Consultant for their renewal and to maintain compliance every year.
Our Medical Cannabis Consultant Annual Certification providers your minimum of ten (10) hours of continuing education each year to renew their professional certification. A certificate holder must also provide acceptable documentation of completion of continuing education hours upon request of the secretary or an audit. Training may be completed via any in-person seminars, lectures, workshops, and professional conferences or through distance learning webinars, any audio or video broadcasting, teleconferencing, eLearning, and any educational webcasts.
Up to twenty-five percent (25%) of the certificate-holders are randomly audited for continuing education compliance after the credential is renewed. During an audit, it is the certificate holder’s responsibility to submit documentation of their completed training activities. Failure to comply with the audit of documentation request or failure to supply acceptable documentation within sixty (60) days may result in suspension or revocation of the certificate. All certificate holders must maintain records of continuing education completion for four (4) years minimum.
