Oaksterdam Launches Course to Certify Michigan Dispensary Workers

Michigan Cannabis-Dispensary Worker Training

Today, the Michigan Cannabis Regulatory Agency (CRA) released $1 million in grants to 62 equity licensees throughout the state to be used for employee education, business needs, and community investment. The money was split evenly, amounting to $16,129 per qualified recipient. 

The grants come the same day Oaksterdam University (OU) launches Michigan Cannabis Dispensary Worker Training. This self-paced online training provides cannabis retail workers with the required knowledge to comply with state laws and regulations and easily communicate them to customers. The training is administered in partnership with an accredited institution, making the training eligible under the terms of the grant. 

OU’s Michigan Cannabis Dispensary Worker Training provides the most comprehensive education for cannabis dispensary workers developed by expert faculty who are leaders and pioneers in the $33 billion global cannabis industry. Retail workers in cannabis dispensaries play a vital role in public health and safety, as well as reducing liability risk.  

OU’s Michigan training prepares dispensary workers to be safe, informed, and compliant with state regulations. It includes:

  • Federal vs. State Laws
  • Michigan Laws & Regulations
  • Foundations of Retail Work
  • Public Health & Hygiene
  • The Effects of Cannabis
  • Cultivar Selection
  • Products, Methods of Ingestion & Dosing
  • Customer Service

The training program and certification are $150, with group discounts available. It is accessible online—anytime, anywhere—at the student’s pace. 

The defining features of the Michigan cannabis supply chain are local control of business licensing and an unlimited number of licenses available for all license types. This type of free-market competition generally results in more product options and competitive pricing. 

These and many other Michigan-specific laws and regulations are included in Oaksterdam’s Michigan Cannabis Dispensary Worker Training. 

Oaksterdam has a rich history in Michigan. The school started teaching in Ann Arbor in 2008 and taught at the Genesee Valley campus until the business that hosted became too busy to close for classes in 2011. Oaksterdam seminars had record-setting attendance and launched thousands of entrepreneurs and innovators. “We are extremely excited to bring our online training back to Michigan to help ensure safety and compliance for the team,” said Oaksterdam University Executive Chancellor Dale Sky Jones.
