*Remember, in order to receive full Ganjier Certification, you must complete the online curriculum, the live assessment training and the final exams.

These spots are only available on a first-come, first served basis, so time and space are limited.

Your Next Steps:

To accommodate those with time, budget, and travel constraints, we’ve bundled live instruction and final examinations together into concurrent dates. You may take your exams immediately following your Live Training in Humboldt OR you may return to Humboldt and take your exams at a later date.  

However, we STRONGLY recommend that you return home after your 2-day, in-person, live training to STUDY and PRACTICE prior to booking your exam date.  The exams are thorough and rigorous.  You should only book your exam date when you are fully confident that you are properly prepared.

What Ganjier Students Are Saying


There are 3 levels of Ganjier Certification: Certified Ganjier (CG), Advanced Ganjier (AG), and Executive Ganjier (EG). To achieve Certification in any level, you must successfully complete all 3 steps in the Certification process: 

Step 1 – Complete the Online Training 

Step 2 – Attend the Live Training 

Step 3 – Pass all three in-person exams 

  • Knowledge Exam
  • Service Exam
  • Assessment Exam 

Combining online coursework, tutorials, hands-on training, written and skill exams and an exclusive Systematic Assessment Protocol (The SAP) Ganjier will equip you with the skills and knowledge few in the industry (even the most seasoned veterans) possess.

Everyone over the age of 18 years is welcome to apply to begin their journey towards becoming a Ganjier.  We have students from all over the globe who have enrolled and attended our live training sessions in Humboldt County, California.

It is strongly recommended that all candidates have a significant amount of existing cannabis experience.

However, to become a Certified Ganjier requires a keen sense of smell and taste.  If you have known issues or problems with your sense of smell and / or taste, this may impact your ability to pass the Assessment exam.  Having the ability to be trained to accurately assess the qualitative and desirable aspects of cannabis is a critical component of becoming a Certified Ganjier.  If you are unable to pass any of the three exams, including the Assessment exam, you will NOT be awarded certification.

Our 2-day, expert-led live training sessions, conducted in the heart of the Emerald Triangle, are open exclusively for students wishing to become Certified Ganjiers.  ONLY currently registered Full Certification Pathway or Online Curriculum students are eligible to enroll into and attend the live training sessions.

The Ganjier Full Certification Pathway costs $3299, and includes ALL THREE STEPS to become a Certified Ganjier: the online curriculum, in-person training, and 3-part exam. You can also purchase each step in the Ganjier Certification process separately, which is $799 for the “First Step / Online Curriculum”, and $2,999 to “Complete My Journey” which includes the Live Training & Exams ( 2-day in-person training, 3-part exam).

We are offering a limited number of tuition scholarships for the Full Certification Pathway.  The scholarship will cover 50% of the tuition and is being offered to anyone who has been directly and negatively impacted by the “War on Drugs”.

Additionally, we offer flexible payment plan options for those who wish to spread the cost of the tuition over multiple payments.

Due to the Live Training aspect of the curriculum, as well as the three in-person certification tests, travel to Humboldt County, California, will be necessary to complete your certification.

While it is not a requirement to complete all ten online courses prior to attending the  in-person training, at a minimum, we highly recommend completing the Assessment and Service courses prior to attending the Live Training so you may fully maximize your time during your Live session.  As a reminder, ONLY Full Certification Pathway and Online Curriculum students may book their Live Training and / or Exam date(s).

As a matter of convenience and financial flexibility, you are eligible to book your Exam date immediately following your 2-day Live Training.  However, we STRONGLY recommend that you return home after your 2-day in-person live training to STUDY and PRACTICE prior to booking your exam date.  The exams are thorough and rigorous.  You should only book your exam date when you are fully confident that you are properly prepared.
