This training provides staff with operational, medicinal, and customer experience knowledge needed to work in a medical dispensary.


The Mississippi Department of Health requires a successful completion of 5hrs of continuing education units (CEUs) in order to begin employment in a licensed cannabis operation in Mississippi, as well as an additional 5hrs of CEUs, annually. We work with licensed and aspiring licensee holders to provide engaging, rigorous training. This training satisfies the initial CEU requirement (additional 3hrs will be provided by DOR and METRC)

Participants will enter our mock dispensary (The Budroom) and be engaged in an immersive, hands-on learning experience. We put compliance at the forefront to ensure all workers understand the purpose and regulatory procedures associated with the job. Using hands-on activities (no products), discussions, and scenarios, students will complete eight modules of in-person coursework, with an accompanying final exam.
