When you choose to study with Bud Education, you gain access to our expert trainers and our leading-edge curriculum, with all with the flexibility that comes with online learning. Our online approved Responsible Vendor Training program is the ideal solution for MA Marijuana Establishment Owners and Marijuana Agents that seek Responsible Vendor status.

We have trained over 1,000 Marijuana Agents in MA to date. Currently, our clients include some of the top companies in the industry. Our price is great too!

What Makes Us Different?

Our curriculum uses Universal Design for Learning guidelines. UDL is a framework to improve and optimize learning for all people based on scientific insights into how people learn.

  • We offer multiple ways to understand complex regulatory information in an adult course format.
  • We break down this material into manageable units. You choose how you want to learn and how you want to express what you have learned. 
  • We equip the attendee to apply what they have learned to the workplace.

Please note, not all online training is created equally. We invite you to take a free "test drive" of our online program to help you make the best decision for your company.

  • We are not a drag, drop, click and tick compliance program like many of the others.
  • We use course formate, which allows the attendee to choose audio or reading options and provides for ultimate engagement to reinforce what you have learned.
  • We offer five of the eight hours of required training. 

An establishment may train its employees in-house for the remaining three hours. This training may include your typical onboarding, product knowledge, metrc, or other topics related to an employee's position.
