Looking to break into the cannabis industry? Interested in an innovative way to train new hires at your cannabis company? Whether you want to be a budtender, are hoping to work in management or in an executive role, or need to get a new employee up to speed on all things cannabis, the Higher Growth Search Trimmer Certification Course is a great way to begin to understand what our favorite plant is all about—from the ground up.

Learning how to buck and trim cannabis is a valuable skill whether you want to find a position in cannabis production or want to understand the core knowledge of how cannabis is processed—insight that will serve you well in whatever type of cannabis career you seek.

The Trimmer Certification Course is unique in several ways. It’s a self-paced video course, allowing you the flexibility to take the series of classes at your own pace from your own location. After you enroll, we’ll ship a package containing everything you need directly to your location. Since the plant material used for the training is commercial hemp and meets federal guidelines for low THC content, anyone 21+ can legally enroll.

Every trimmer training kit includes:

  • Higher Growth Search branded apron

  • Trimming scissors

  • Gloves (two pairs with size entered upon registration)

  • Band-Aids with refillable container

  • Live, commercial hemp

  • Instructional guide

  • Product disposal & photo guide

Once you are ready to begin, our in-house experts will facilitate your learning process with hands-on, virtual training. When you complete the course and with your certificate in hand, you can schedule a one-on-one meeting with a Canna-Career Advisor who will walk you through the process of moving forward toward potential employment in the cannabis industry.

The course is broken into four parts. Parts One, Two, and Three contain topic introductions, trimming lessons, and online quizzes that must be completed with a score of 80% or higher. Once you complete the two quizzes for the bucking and trimming sections, you then move on to Part Four: a one-on-one course follow-up with a Canna-Career Advisor and potential entry into the Higher Growth Search talent network and placement in a cannabis role.

Customize Your Cannabis Course

Because the Trimmer Certification Course covers cannabis industry basics and focuses on the skills people need to acquire bucking and trimming positions, the program serves as a valuable tool for companies, organizations, nonprofits, and universities as part of their new employee education onboarding platform or class curriculum.

Higher Growth Search’s cannabis course is available with white-label options for employers and educators who wish to add the course to their onboarding process or curriculum in a customized manner. We can also assist with any accompanying educational components that facilitate the use of the training curriculum by an employer, along with a certified coach to ensure proper implementation.

As an expert in job-skills development for cannabis roles, we can also help customize curricula as companies and educators build the course to their specifications. We are proud that this type of innovative training was acknowledged when we won a Bronze Stevie® Award in The 2022 American Business Awardsfor Company of the Year in Business and Professional services. Originally developed to help individuals from underserved communities achieve a Trimmer Certification to begin work in the cannabis industry, the course continues to be a key component of our social impact mission.
