The Certified Compliance Officer Training Course

Why consider a career in cannabis compliance auditing?   Given the state of the economy, the uncertainty of different professions and unemployment, many people are looking for careers that will always exist.   Cannabis is here to stay, and the growth in the industry will only continue to grow as more states legalize both recreational and medical cannabis.   When cannabis is legalized federally, the demand for cannabis compliance auditors will skyrocket due to product demand and the necessary safeguards the government has established and monitors.

Certified Cannabis Compliance Training, Inc., is prepared to help its graduates find jobs in the industry, and offers additional seminars and courses designed to help make cannabis compliance auditors more efficient and keep their skills in demand.   Unlike other certification courses, we are so confident in our graduates being able to find any number of employment opportunities, that we back our certification with a tuition refund policy if for some reason our graduates can not find a job.   Certain restrictions apply.


These are the study modules for the course. They vary in length from 10-12 slides to over 100.  Additionally, the review course provides three full days of online instruction and exam taking tips.
