KEY LARGO, Florida (Covering Katy News) – HempStaff, a leader in recruiting for employees in the cannabis and hemp industries announced the first series of live medical dispensary training webinars for the states of Texas and several other states. Graduates of the program would become what some call budtenders.
The training class comes the same week that the Texas House of Representatives voted to increase the number of medical conditions that can be legally treated with cannabis. The Senate still must pass the legislation and then the Governor would have to sign the bill before it became law.
The first live webinar on Saturday, April 27, 2019, is designed to prepare students for work in a Florida medical cannabis dispensary and will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. EDT. The second online course will take place on Saturday, May 11, 2019, for the states of Texas, New Mexico and Arizona from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. CDT.
“Florida is adding an expected 9,500 additional jobs in 2019,” according to the recruiting firm HempStaff. “And in Arizona, it is expected there will be 11,370 jobs in the cannabis job market by the end of 2019,” the firm claims.

The four-hour online courses will prepare students for work at a medical dispensary in the respective state. The webinars are designed to help students understand the industry and its regulations. The course specializes in dispensary employee education that includes the cannabinoids, terpenes and the types of cannabis products offered nationwide. The course also offers a resume template, resume and cover letter instructions and a list of interviewing tips – all to prepare students for cannabis industry interviews.
“We are honored to be able to offer live webinar training courses for multiple states across the country,” said HempStaff CEO James Yagielo. “We have been traveling across the United States hosting in-person dispensary training courses for years and understand how important it is to expand our reach to more students to ensure everyone has an equal chance of landing their dream job in this fast-growing industry.”
At the end of each course, an exam is offered that allows students to earn a HempStaff Certification and add ‘HempStaff Certified’ to their resume. Students need to earn a score of 75 percent or higher on the test.
“This certification can help students stand out when applying for a job at a dispensary,” said a statement from HelpStaff. “In addition to boosting resumes, the course will teach students about their local laws and what to expect in dispensaries, how to recommend the appropriate medical cannabis dosage, products and more,” the statement said.
