The 5 STAR Workforce Certificate Program gives students the baseline of knowledge needed to be a licensed employee and is meant to strengthen compliance in the evolving cannabis industry. The faculty who designed this course meant it to be used by aspiring and current employees to help maintain a positive code of conduct when entering the field to care for sick patients and consumers who choose cannabis as a medicine or means of relaxation. By taking these courses, students are informed on how to uphold industry (general business and community) culture while learning how to apply each topic to compliance standards. All vocabulary learned in these courses apply to industry and business in any state, but particularly to how things operate in New Mexico. Upon completion, students will receive a Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA) and an Ethics and Code of Conduct Certificate. Both are needed to become MCP ID Licensed to work for cannabis establishments and are required compliance training for all cannabis establishments and their employees operating under the New Mexico Administrative Code (NMAC) 7.34.4 regulations under the NM Department of Health. All Dispensaries, Manufacturers, Laboratories, and Couriers and Business Owners, Budtenders, Lab Techs, Managers, Reception, Security, Patient Care, Customer Service, Sales, Marketing, Human Resources, and Contractors have to take these topics yearly.
