CCT Certified Retail Staff Training (CCT1)

Although 94% of dispensary staff personnel provide specific cannabis advice to patients, only 20% have received any formal training on the medical benefits of cannabis(1). Our training provides evidence-based science using best practice teaching methods for adult learners. We start with cannabis basics and teach your staff how to take that information and apply it to the products you have on your shelves.
