Budtender cannabis training is being offered for Florida medical marijuana to help potential employees learn about the rules surrounding the law that was voted on last November. Understanding the rules is very important not only to make sure that you are able to maintain your license but also to make sure you do no break the law. Those seeking employment in the medical cannabis industry certainly need to understand the rules and will want to be a standout on any application they may fill out.
For those with no legal experience to put on a resume, training increases your chances of getting a job in the medical marijuana industry! On average, a Marijuana business owner gets over 200 resumes for every opening they post. With this training on your resume – you WILL stand out from the crowd!
On Nov 8th, 2016 Florida passed a FULL Medical Marijuana program with Amendment 2, in addition to the existing Compassionate Care Act (Low THC) and the new Terminal Illness Law (allows THC use for those with less than 6 months to live).
The Department of Health has until July 3rd 2017 to make the final regulations for Amendment 2. However, on June 9th the Florida legislature approved 2 Bills, which will allow 10 more cultivators (for a total of 17), each allowed to open up to 25 dispensaries (for a total of 425). These bills outlaw smoking, but do allow vaping and edibles. Gov. Scott has said he will absolutely sign both bills.How will this course help you get a job in a Medical Marijuana Dispensary?1) We offer a resume review, to get your resume looking exactly how cannabis business owners like it2) Training on your resume will get you noticed when you apply to a dispensary and lead to more interviews3) The knowledge you learn in class allows you to speak intelligently and speak to points the dispensary managers want to hear, giving you a much greater chance of landing the job.4) When HempStaff clients come to us looking for Budtenders, our trained students, that live in their area, will have their resumes sent to the client first.
Some states call it a Budtender, Dispensary Agent, Compassion Care Technician or Patient Liaison. No matter what the title is, the job description is the same – it is the person that works behind the counter of a medical marijuana dispensary and here at HempStaff, we believe they need to be trained. They are the product specialists whose main responsibility is to be a product specialist. This person must be trained to work with cardholders and help educate patients on how cannabis can alleviate some of their medical symptoms. Dispensary agents must be able to not only work with cardholders on the products that may work best but also how to use these products and what the appropriate dosages should be.
