Responsible Vendor Training

Don't risk hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines, or worse.

Become an MED Certified Colorado Responsible Vendor today!

The Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division has given you a unique and valuable opportunity. If your dispensary or retail store becomes a Certified Responsible Vendor, and you are found to have a compliance problem, the MED will consider your certification as a mitigating factor when determining sanctions or penalties. That’s right. If you take Responsible Vendor Training to become Responsible Vendor Certified, it could help reduce or eliminate fines and other penalties.

So, how do you get this highly valued certification?

Easy. The Cannabis Industry Institute, the industry’s leading source for training and certification, is approved by the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to certify you as an MED Responsible Vendor.

Responsible Vendor Training

All you have to do is allow us to train your staff using our MED approved training program, and keep your staff trained. The Responsible Vendor Training consists of a four-hour course that we can present at your facility. Each student will receive a copy of our Colorado Responsible Vendor Student Guide and a Certificate of Completion. The course is stimulating, interactive and presented by a professional industry instructor. After your employees are trained, just make sure that all new-hires complete the training within 90 days of starting work, and that your entire team is re-certified every two years. That way, you’ll maintain your Responsible Vendor certification and all the benefits it brings.

And speaking of benefits

The course pinpoints areas where your frontline employees are most likely to violate one of the hundreds of MED regulations. So it’s not just good insurance, it’s the RIGHT thing to do for your investors and your team.

It’s also the right thing to do for your customers. Becoming MED Responsible Vendor certified shows your customers that you care about their safety, and are committed to being among the best of the best cannabis retailers in Colorado. After completing your store’s certification, you’ll receive a decal for your front window to show customers that your team has been trained and that your business is MED Responsible Vendor certified.

  • The Laws for License Holders and Employees
  • I Need to See Some Identification
  • Selling
  • The License Holder’s Responsibilities
