Handle Alaska is a state approved course for anyone who works in the Alaska cannabis industry in any of the licensed establishments. Whether you're an owner, cultivator, processor, lab technician, budtender, transporter, working security, or even doing contract work in the facility, this is the required course to teach you all the laws and regulations in the industry.

This course must cover:

  • Alaska's medical marijuana laws

  • Ballot Measure 2

  • State-wide regulations (Ch 306)

  • Effects of marijuana consumption

  • How to identify an impaired individual

  • How to distinguish valid forms of government issued IDs

  • How to intervene and prevent unlawful consumption

  • Penalties for any unlawful acts. 


Course Format:

  • 11 lessons in video format (2 hour run time)

  • Transcripts of those videos

  • Lesson 12 has the test and directions with links detailing how to get your card from AMCO

  • The test has 44 multiple choice and true/false questions

  • 10 chances to pass the exam with a 70% pass rate (no one has needed 10 chances, but it takes the pressure off)

  • Test opens in a separate tab, allowing you to confirm answers

  • 1 year access


Additional Information:

The cover page from MyAlaska, the signed course exam certificate, a 2x2 passport sized photo (not needed for walk in processing - they will take your picture for you) and a photocopy of your ID must  be submitted to AMCO, who will issue the actual Handler Card to you. In addition, applicants must undergo a name based state background check for $20 through the Troopers.
