Quality education and worker training are vital elements of any industry, and the cannabis industry is no exception.
Colorado-based Learn Brands believes in providing an educational platform that can accommodate all of the cannabis industry’s training needs, including brand training, general education, and a university grade management system for internal training.
To date, the company says it has provided more than 60,000 hours of training for over 17,000 industry employees, 200+ brands, and 1,100+ dispensaries through its platform.
The company has also issued more than $2.5 million in rewards in 15 states (Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Washington).
Learn Brands today announced its expansion of training for cannabis workers with new general education courses such as Introduction to Cannabis and Cannabis Science.
Learn Brands also offers a Responsible Vendor Training (RVT) program that it says is being used throughout Massachusetts to meet state compliance requirements.
Hudson Botanical Processing Founder and CEO Brian Adams says Learn Brands’ RVT Program has provided his employees with meaningful training.
“Learn Brands’ Massachusetts RVT training gave our team members the ability to work at their own pace outside of the classroom, and the coursework was interactive and engaging,” says Adams. “We’re seeing better retention and getting positive feedback from them about the RVT training online.”
Other educational offerings from Learn Brands include internal training programs that allow cannabis companies, dispensaries, and other related businesses to host training, standard operating procedure (SOP) training, and onboarding content for workers.
Meeting Industry Needs
Learn Brands General Manager Max Armstrong says the company meets the various needs of cannabis industry personnel in the digital space.
“From introductory courses to state-mandated compliance training, there’s a huge demand for easy-to-access, easy-to-use resources,” says Armstrong. “We are excited to continue to support our partners with new trainings that were built based on the developing needs of the industry.”
Armstrong says that the company’s online cannabis training platform meets a need that will continue to grow for a long time as the industry continues on an upward trajectory.
“That means more jobs, more rules, more customers, and more demand for quality education across the country and internationally,” says Armstrong. “Learn Brands is going to meet those demands by continuing to expand our training based on industry needs and trends.”
