Leading cannabis industry training and recruitment agency returns to Little Rock to prepare hopefuls for careers in medical marijuana
LITTLE ROCK, Ark., February 26, 2018 (Newswire.com) - HempStaff, a Florida-based recruitment and training agency for the legal marijuana industry, is pleased to announce that it will be returning to Little Rock, Arkansas, to host Medical Marijuana Dispensary Training courses on Saturday, March 17, at Hilton Garden Inn North Little Rock. There will be two separate training sessions: the first from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. CT and the second from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. CT. The course costs $249 with prior online registration or $300 cash at the door if seats are available.
“We are excited to return to Arkansas following the issuance of the state's first five cultivation licenses,” said James Yagielo, CEO and founder of HempStaff. “Dispensaries are expected to open in mid to late fall and standardization in training is important, especially in a program’s infancy. First impressions are often lasting ones; our mission is to ensure that patients are tended to by professional and highly knowledgeable staff.”
In addition to Arkansas’ cannabis regulations, the course topics include:
- Communicating with new customers and medical patients to understand their individual needs
- Managing point-of-sale and inventory systems
- How to determine and recommend dosage
- Cannabis’ effect on the endo-cannabinoid system
- How cannabinoids and terpenes can alleviate or reduce symptoms of illness
- Top 20 cannabis products on the market
The four-hour course culminates in a certification exam that students must score 75 percent or higher to get a HempStaff Dispensary Agent Certification. In addition to education, HempStaff offers recruitment assistance to students, which includes a cannabis resume review and tips on how to make connections with employers looking to fill entry-level positions at dispensaries and cultivation sites.
Future HempStaff training classes are scheduled for Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Illinois, Massachusetts and Florida.
