“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a first step.” — Lao Tzu
For those interested in exploring the Ganjier experience but who aren’t quite prepared, either financially or time wise, to commit to the Full Certification Pathway, we present the Ganjier “First Step”.
“First Step” provides a solution that takes a multi-stage approach to becoming a Certified Ganjier, granting full access to the online portion of the Ganjier Training while simultaneously providing several key benefits.
Led by preeminent experts in the cannabis field, this rigorous and advanced training consists of 10 online courses, 31 lessons, and features all 18 members of the Ganjier Council, designed to help you become a true master of cannabis quality, service, and connoisseurship.
As a First Step student, you’ll receive one year of access to our innovative, proprietary Systematic Assessment Protocol™ App (The SAP). The cornerstone of the Ganjier certification training, The SAP App is a revolutionary new tool for your phone or laptop, providing the Ganjier with the most thorough and accurate cannabis quality assessment method ever developed for cannabis flower and concentrates.
Rigorously tested by the cannabis industry’s most qualified experts, including Emerald Cup judges, scientists, legacy cultivators, concentrate formulators, and more, the SAP was honed and refined by legendary industry leaders who collaborated to develop The Systematic Assessment Protocol into a genuine state-of-the-art tool that will provide enormous value to the cannabis profession.
Only Full Certification Pathway students and students who are registered in the Online Curriculum are eligible to enroll for our acclaimed 2-day, expert led, in-person Live Training sessions in the world famed Emerald Triangle.
Imagine working alongside some of your favorite cannabis icons, sampling premium cannabis, asking questions and getting first-hand instruction straight from the experts.
Earlier this year, we opened up spots for people to enroll in the Full Certification Pathway and we sold out all of the 2021 calendar year spots within weeks.
When you enroll in the Ganjier First Step, you are guaranteed to be first in line to register for the next open spots once they become available. Our intention is that this opportunity will become available sometime in Q4 2021, for 2022 spots.
If you’d like to be first in line, this is your opportunity to lock that in.
The overwhelming demand for our Full Certified Ganjier Pathway was both humbling and exciting. In order to expand enrollment while maintaining our optimal student/instructor ratios, we are only accepting a limited number of students into the Ganjier First Step Program. If you would like to be one of them, we highly suggest you join the interest list to be notified first when enrollment reopens later this year.
Everyone over the age of 18 years is welcome to apply to begin their journey towards becoming a Ganjier. We have students from all over the globe who have enrolled and attended our live training sessions in Humboldt County, California.
It is strongly recommended that all candidates have a significant amount of existing cannabis experience.
However, to become a Certified Ganjier requires a keen sense of smell and taste. If you have known issues or problems with your sense of smell and / or taste, this may impact your ability to pass the Assessment exam. Having the ability to be trained to accurately assess the qualitative and desirable aspects of cannabis is a critical component of becoming a Certified Ganjier. If you are unable to pass any of the three exams, including the Assessment exam, you will NOT be awarded certification.
Not yet. There are “3 steps” to becoming a certified Ganjier: 1) Complete the Online Curriculum, 2) Attend the 2-Day Live Training, and 3) Pass the in-person exams on Knowledge, Service, and Assessment. The Online Curriculum satisfies the initial stage requirement for Ganjier certification, and includes one-year access to the SAP App.
