Who Is This Course For?

FAQ from Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation:
Who needs to receive training from a Responsible Vendor?
All owners, managers, employees, and agents involved in the handling or sale of cannabis or cannabis-infused products employed by an adult use dispensing organization or medical cannabis dispensing organization as defined in Section 10 of the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Program Act.
Are all Principal Officers required to receive training from a Responsible Vendor?
The only agents that are required to receive the Responsible Vendor Training are those involved in the handling or sale of cannabis or cannabis-infused products. However, all agents, including all Principal Officers, must meet the 8-hour training requirement found in Section 15-65(a)(5) of the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act.
Can a Responsible Vendor provide all 8 hours of the training required by Section 15- 65(a)(5)?
Yes, provided the training meets all the requirements of Section 15-40(i)(3) and 15-65(a)(5) of the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act.
Does the training provided by the Responsible Vendor count toward the 8-hour training required by Section 15-65(a)(5)?
Yes. For example, if the Responsible Vendor training is for 3 hours, a dispensing organization would still be required to provide 5 hours of additional training per year. In any case, a dispensary agent, agent-in-charge, and principal officer must receive training on the following topics as prescribed by Section 15-65(a)(5) of the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act: (i) how to effectively operate the point-of-sale system and the State’s verification system, (ii) proper inventory handling and tracking, (iii) specific uses of cannabis or cannabis-infused products, (iv) instruction regarding regulatory inspection preparedness and law enforcement interaction, and (v) awareness of the legal requirements for maintaining status as an agent.
When must individuals receive the training from a Responsible Vendor?
The training must be received within 90 days of September 1, 2019 or within 90 days before or after the first day of employment at a dispensary, whichever is later. Training received outside of the 90-day window will not meet the training requirement imposed by Section 15-40(i) of the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act.
How often must individuals receive training from a Responsible Vendor?
Training must be received annually.
