Application Review Process

Training program applications and all required supplemental documentation will be reviewed for completeness upon receipt. Training program providers will be contacted if any outstanding documentation is needed to complete the process.

  • Completed application packets will then be reviewed by department program staff. Program staff will provide technical assistance if the proposal is not fully compliant with the rules. The secretary of the Department of Health must approve all medical cannabis consultant training programs before classes can be offered. If a program does not meet the requirements following reasonable technical assistance, it will not be approved.
  • Proposed medical cannabis consultant training program trainers will be notified of approval or denial in writing by the department.
  • Contact information for approved training programs are listed on the department's web site.
  • If a training program is approved, they must notify the department prior to making any changes to the original application proposal.
