  1. I got an Interview!!!

    5

    Amazing cannabis class that teaches you everything you need to know before jumping into the dispensary. Dwayne the host is informative and interesting to listen to!! Curriculum made a lot of sense and touched on everyting I needed to know about medicinal marijuana. The opportunities for assistance after class is where it’s at. But the career center is busy. Do your leg work and take advantage of the resume analyrsis because it changed my whole perspective. April helped me see that my background needed more details. I am happy to say I have my 2nd interview with my #1 choice employer tomorrow. I consider this course a total success!

  2. Motivational Career Help

    5

    I love the budtender workshop. It’s definitely a career changing experience for someone who really wants to follow the cannabis career. The whole team is always ready to help with all their experience and knowledge. 5 start to this school and especially to Dwayne, who is a very reliable host and to April the resume coach who will be there to help you grow on your dispensary career. Highly recommend.

  3. In Person vs. Online

    4

    My rating does not reflect this school; it only reflects my experience with this course. I attended this class in person and give it 5 stars all the way. This, the video version, was not as entertaining. Being able to answer these questions and share personal stories really made my class experience memorable. This one is thorough and covers everything as the group class. If you can’t attend, it’s the next best thing and I highly recommend.

  4. Sparked my passion

    5

    I’ve just completed my Herbal Risings career course and I’m now about to do the cbd course.

    Although I wasn’t sure how to make my resume, I was able to get the help I needed by contacting chat. More specifically, the Co-Creator April Olshavsky reached out to me personally and helped me with my resume. I really appreciate the nice gesture and the fact that she is really trying to help students achieve their goals. Thanks, April!

    The course itself- Dwayne, the course host, is amazing too! The course is filmed in front of a live class, which makes it feel like I am right there with the rest of them. He also gives advice based on real-life experience and examples. I truly believe this is the career I was meant for!

    The course curriculum is great too! It’s not all theory, but we actually apply those theories in hypothetical quiz questions! It definitely sparks my passion and excitement throughout the course. Oh, and there’s that sense of achievement when I see my certificate!

    I am about to start work at a dispensary but I’m totally new in this area. Doing this course really helped me improve my research, and now understand the product and customers better in terms of the science of the plant.

    I’m really glad I chose Herbal Risings and this course that brings me to a whole new level in my dispensary career!
