CHICAGO, Jan. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — HempStaff, a medical marijuana staffing and training agency, is hosting a Medical Marijuana Dispensary Agent Training Class in the Chicago area on Jan. 28, 2017. There are two sessions to choose from 8:00am-12:00pm or 1:30pm-5:30pm. The event will be held at the Embassy Suites Chicago O’Hare 5500 North River Road Rosemont, Illinois. The cost is $249 with prior online registration or $300 cash at the door, if seats are still available.
Staffing is needed to keep up with the pace of the new medical marijuana dispensaries opening in the state each day. The sale of medical marijuana started with eight licensed dispensaries on Nov. 9, 2015. Since that time, the Illinois Medical Marijuana Program has continued to grow to meet the market demand. HempStaff’s four-hour course is designed to prepare participants for work in a medical marijuana dispensary and provide them a serious advantage when seeking employment.
The course offers participants the training about cannabis and cannabis products along with all the information to keep up-to-date with Illinois medical marijuana laws. HempStaff offers a resume review to help best prepare them for seeking employment in this course as well. The end of the course offers a certification exam, that the student must score at least 75% to get a HempStaff Dispensary Agent Certification. Since HempStaff is also a recruiting agency, when employers seek to fill entry level dispensary agents or cultivation site workers, students are contacted first.
HempStaff has trained and certified more than 1,700 dispensary agents nationwide and continues to hold classes across the United States. In addition to the class held in Illinois, classes are currently scheduled for Pennsylvania, Nevada, Maryland, Washington DC, and New England. Future 2017 classes are slated for Ohio, Michigan and Florida. Those who have already taken the HempStaff course have provided exceptional feedback
