OHIO: HempStaff, a medical marijuana recruiting and training agency, is hosting three Medical Marijuana Dispensary Agent Training Classes in Ohio this summer as the state gets ready for the implementation of the state’s Medical Marijuana Program.
The first class will be held June 3rd in Cleveland at the Hilton Garden Inn, located at 4900 Emerald Court Southwest, Cleveland.
The second is slated for June 17th at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza located at 35 West 5th Street in Cincinnati.
The third opportunity will be July 1st in Columbus at the Embassy Suites by Hilton – Columbus Airport located at 2886 Airport Drive in Columbus.
Each training will have 2 class times to select from, 8:00am to 12:00pm or 1:30pm to 5:30pm. The cost is $249 with advance online registration or $300 cash at the door, if seats are available.
According to the latest research, more than 1.2 million people already use medical marijuana for a wide variety of medical problems, and the industry continues to grow. In 2016, the industry for both medical and legal marijuana grew to $7.1 billion, a sharp 25 percent from 2015. Currently, 28 states and D.C have legal medical marijuana laws with Ohio joining the ranks in 2016. Trained dispensary staff will be needed to keep up with the pace of the new medical marijuana dispensaries that will open, as Ohio Medical Marijuana Dispensaries are expected to open sometime in 2018.
HempStaff has trained and certified more than 1,950 dispensary agents nationwide and continues to hold classes across the United States with an extensive travel schedule for 2017. HempStaff is also a recruiting agency, so when business owners contract HempStaff to find entry level dispensary or cultivation site workers, students who successfully pass the course are contacted first about these opportunities.
HempStaff’s course offers participants training on cannabis and cannabis products along with all the information to keep up-to-date with Ohio’s medical marijuana laws. The course is completed with a certification exam, which the student must get 75% to obtain their HempStaff Certification. If you don’t pass the test, not to worry, all students can attend future classes at no charge with advance notice. HempStaff also offers a resume review to help best prepare them for seeking employment.
“I have attended a few training classes and they keep getting better and better! The classes are very informative with a well organized presentation. The staff is very friendly as well and everyone is so helpful. I have received my certification already from this class but i find it very helpful to go back each year to learn new and up to date information. I would highly recommend taking this class to anyone looking to get a well rounded education in the dispensary agent training!” said one recent student about their experience with the course. HempStaff provides a number of testimonials on their website and Facebook from satisfied students who gained knowledge and appreciated the resume assistance in order to find work in the industry.
For potential business owners, Ohio plans to have their final set of regulations for cultivation centers in March and for Dispensaries in September, with the application period for each shortly after. If you are looking to be a business owner, let HempStaff save you time and energy when you are completing your application. Our team can help you find every single member of your team and ensure your dispensary agents, which are the face of the industry, are well trained.
