Medical Marijuana Illinois Dispensary Jobs
This is a Professional Training Course to teach you what you need to know about cannabis and your state’s Cannabis Laws so that you have the knowledge needed to apply to work in a marijuana dispensary. The material is presented in a fast paced, 4 hour course with a summary exam at the end to get your certificate of completion. The goal of this class is to help you understand the cannabis industry and cannabis products, as well as help boost your resume and give you the knowledge you need to speak intelligently when you land that interview for an opening at a dispensary in the near future.

For those with no legal experience to put on a resume, training greatly increases your chances of getting a job in the marijuana industry! On average, a Marijuana business owner gets over 200 resumes for every opening they post! With HempStaff Training on your resume – you WILL stand out from the crowd!

Many owners across the nation have taken our course, and they all agree – they will look for HempStaff trained employees first when interviewing for entry level dispensary employees – as they know our course gives them the cannabis knowledge to help them succeed.  Certainly not every business owner has heard of us, but all owners can agree that some training is better than no training.  

How will this course help you get a job in a Marijuana Dispensary?
1)  We offer a resume review, to get your resume looking exactly how cannabis business owners like it

2)  Training on your resume will get you noticed when you apply to a dispensary and lead to more interviews

5) As a previous HempStaff Student you can take the state required Responsible Vendor Training at NO CHARGE for the first year! The is a great perk to employers that hire our students, to get this free training they otherwise would have to pay for.

This training focuses on Dispensary Agents, or Budtenders, the person that works behind the counter of a marijuana dispensary. At HempStaff, we believe they need to be trained since they are the product specialists whose main responsibility is to be an expert on all cannabis products. This person must be trained to work with patients and customers and help educate on how cannabis can alleviate some of their symptoms. Dispensary agents must be able suggest which products  may work best and also how to use these products and what the appropriate dosages should be.

After passing this cannabis dispensary training for Illinois, HempStaff offers you a resume review to help you get your document looking the best that it can before you start sending it out for posted positions. And of course, when our recruiters are contracted to fill entry level dispensary agents or cultivation site workers, we review our student’s resumes and contact them first!
