Cannabis Integrity Authority Opens Doors Online to the General Public and Announces Accepting Instructor Applications

First Ever Nationwide Cannabis Certification Program With Third Party Verification System Goes Live and Is Looking for More Industry Experts for Additional Instructor Positions

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - April 23, 2015) - After several delays, Cannabis Integrity Authority (CIA), a company designed to teach business ethics, patient safety and help currently operating cannabis businesses establish professional standards, has opened the doors to its online site and has mentioned several upcoming announcements will be issued over the next couple of days, including the advisement that CIA is now looking for more Cannabis Industry Experts to apply as Instructors for the CIA Online Platform.

CIA provides uniquely created and proprietorially designed training classes, in Live Seminar Workshop format, to existing cannabis businesses, state agencies, employees, unemployed members of the workforce, non-profits, medical personnel and entrepreneurs interested in getting into the medical marijuana industry or just needing information regarding the industry in a professional format.

CIA also works with companies, state agencies, law enforcement, interest groups and small businesses to help design and implement cannabis training modules for all industry positions in the MMJ markets, based on the specific needs and requirements of that group.

CIA provides live Seminar Workshops across the nation, broadcasted Webinars which are accessible wherever there is online access, plus, CIA has an online, college level, marijuana industry, educational platform. This educational platform allows for high quality, university level instruction courses taught by industry experts who adhere to the CIA principles. These courses very specifically include detailed examinations that are designed to test the learning experience of the student in a tangible, valuable manner, reflecting the student's learning of the course information. Passing the examination with a specific score level, or higher, provides students a certification for attendance, completion or understanding.

Certifications, once received, are viewable online by third parties to whom students have provided a unique identifier code. This process leaves the privacy and security of the Certificate and student information entirely to the discretion of the student. 

Currently CIA is interested in communicating with more individuals who are considered Cannabis Industry Experts. With the ever widening workforce of the industry, there are a wide variety of employment skill sets and educational opportunities to teach upon. CIA Instructors are Independent Contractors and are paid a better percentage ratio than the current ratio paid out by major online colleges to adjunct instructors, according to multiple sources. Instructors may also earn referral bonuses, recognition award bonuses and much more.

Those wishing to join the CIA Instructor Workforce are invited to apply with CIA to teach industry courses on the CIA Platform, in topics in which they have expertise and can incorporate the CIA requirements of patient safety, standardization and business best practices; all while remaining unique and informative to ensure student appreciation. Interested parties may fill out the CIA Instructor Application, found on the CIA website, submitting the filled out form to CIA to be approved. Once approved, CIA will finalize with a contract that supports both the agency and the Instructor fairly.

As Cannabis Integrity Authority is a non-competitive platform, other educational facilities online and brick and mortar land based locations are welcome to also apply to place their content on the CIA platform at the same payout ratio as instructors are provided. Confirmation and approval of content is based on quality and lack of major or obvious advertising.

"We have had a few setbacks to our expected timeliness in getting our company out there," Meki Cox, Co-Founder of the newest educational platform for the marijuana business world stated. She advised her mother died in the last 6 weeks and that kind of slowed things down dramatically.

Casey Keith, also Co-Founder of CIA advised that during the day, CIA would be making more announcements, including partnerships with various other companies, details about upcoming seminars that have been scheduled and additional information about CIA that would be passed out today and tomorrow.
