Pre-Employment Basic Training Online
Training You Need to Land the Job
Abby Hutmacher, Colorado Pot Guide writes " there are more dispensaries in Colorado than Starbucks, McDonald’s and 7-Elevens combined -- and the numbers keep growing."
Budtender Education Authors write- "There will be a significant increase in demand for Marijuana Establishment Agents (budtenders) It is unlikely you will land a job without some kind of training or experience. If you are looking to join the marijuana industry this course if for you."
*This course is for the pre-employed this is not the MA RVT Program for employed agents.
This online course is a comprehensive look at what you should know before applying for a job as a Marijuana Establishment Agent.

Our mission is to provide you with the information and requirements you will need to prepare for an interview in a Marijuana Establishment. The curriculum is designed to teach all learners. The program is user-friendly, informative and engaging and is presented to you using multiple methods of presentation. Pre-employment training will give you the basic knowledge required to take that first step into the cannabis industry. It is more than a just a strain! See the units of study below.

For over three decades, I have been working as an educator and administrator in Massachusetts. During that time, I was responsible for overseeing an inner-city school system's safety and security systems.
Responsibilities included writing policies and procedures, compliance training, professional development seminars such as; Crisis Intervention and de-escalation, educational law topics, behavior management, substance abuse, Restorative Justice, social emotional learning, and Mindfulness. During my tenure, I worked with educators, security staff, community police, gang units, drug units, DOJ, court systems, mental health providers, city, state, and federal staff on regulatory issues and reform. I have attended trainings for internet-based threats/hacking and security breaches presented by the FBI in Massachusetts. Additionally, I am trained in ALICE/active shooter training.
I worked daily for over twenty years keeping illegal substances out of the hands of minors. The goal was and still is to provide a safe and drug free environment so learning can take place.
The RVT program was designed using a Universal Design method. UDL methods break down the barriers to understanding complicated (regulatory) or difficult to understand material so that all have equal access to the curriculum.
I also dabble into to growing marijuana and summer veggies! I enjoy writing blogs about my journey with this misunderstood plant.
