Dispensary Technician Training: Zoom (March)


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 , combined with the 2hrs from METRC and 1hr from DOR, satisfies the initial 8hr requirement.

Participants will engage in an 5hr course developed in accordance with Dispensary Technician/Budtender best practices. We put compliance at the forefront to ensure all workers understand the purpose and regulatory procedures associated with the job. Using interactive engagement best practices: discussions, breakout rooms, and scenarios, students will complete eight modules of online coursework, with an accompanying final exam.

  • The Dispensary Technician/Budtender Role and Responsibilities
