The Alaska Marijuana Handler Card 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, or working security, this is the perfect course to teach you all of the required laws and regulations in the industry.

This course must cover: Alaska's medical marijuana laws, Ballot Measure 2, all of the state wide regulations (Ch 306), the 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, and the penalties for any unlawful acts. Other courses may offer additional information that is not required by the state.


The course is divided into 11 lessons in video format, along with transcripts of those videos. After course completion, one has 10 chances to pass the exam with a 70% pass rate. No one has needed 10 chances, but it takes the pressure off. The test was updated in July 2021 so it's shorter and more direct while still retaining the most relevant aspects of the industry.  The cover page from the AMCO office, the signed course exam certificate, a 2x2 passport sized photo, and a photocopy of your ID must then be submitted to the enforcement wing of the Marijuana Control Office, 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. Lesson 12 of the course has the test as well as all the directions you need to get the card from the state. 

Online | Anytime   $55 --> ONLY $45 in August!

This course is broken up into 11 lessons, each has one to three videos between 3 and 8 minutes in length. Transcripts are included with each lesson because sometimes you want to listen to the information and sometimes you need to just read it. Work on this at your own pace in the comfort of your home. 

Stripe (the credit card processor associated with the course hosting site) shut me down so you've got a couple of options to pay and register for the course:

1. Pick up the phone and call me. I know it's old fashioned, but it works! I run your credit card information through Square and immediately put your information into the back office so you're into the course (through an emailed link) in less than 5 minutes. Due to my schedule, the best time to call me is after 2 on weekdays or anytime on the weekends. If you would like to pay and get into the course during the week day, please choose option 2.

2. Pay through PayPal: (Note: they aren't letting me change the pricing to $45 at this time so to get the special price you must call me directly) Once you click the button below, the bottom option allows you to pay as a guest without setting up an account. I  receive an email from Paypal. As soon as I am notified of the payment, I enter you into the back office of the course and you'll get a course link emailed to you. If you would like it sent to a different name and/ or email, or if you are paying for multiple people, you can either include that information in the instructions to the merchant through Paypal or use the contact form below to indicate your preference. Each person must have their own email address for the course as that's what differentiates individuals with the same name.

3. Venmo now available! Please follow this link to send payment through Venmo. YOU MUST INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL IN THE NOTES SECTION OR I HAVE NO WAY TO SEND IT TO YOU. Once I get the notification of the correct amount (regularly $55, ONLY $45 during AUGUST), I will send the link into the course to your email account.

If you have a gmail account, some of the Welcome Emails have been getting pushed into the Promotions tab located above the inbox. If you don't see the email in your inbox, check in there. 

Refunds: I'm sorry, but I cannot issue a refund once someone has logged into the course. Thank you for your understanding!
