Prepping for Medical Marijuana Jobs in Arkansas

Aspiring career changers in Arkansas can train for a job in the booming medical marijuana industry at specialized courses in North Little Rock this Saturday.

HempStaff, a medical marijuana staffing and training agency will hold their first class in Arkansas on Oct. 7. The four-hour Medical Marijuana Dispensary Agent Training Course is designed to prepare participants for work in a dispensary so that business owners are getting educated and well-prepared candidates when they start to fill new positions.

The course educates the participants on cannabis and cannabis products along with all the information to keep up-to-date with Arkansas’s medical marijuana laws. HempStaff offers its students 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 percent 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 over 3,000 dispensary agents nationwide since 2014 and is considered the leader in Medical Marijuana Dispensary Education. HempStaff continues to hold classes across the United States. In addition to the class held in Arkansas, classes are currently scheduled for Maryland, Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio, Illinois, California, Michigan and New England.
