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 is also the only course that gives back to the cannabis community and industry by donating a portion of the proceeds to the Alaska Marijuana Industry Association for lobbying efforts in Juneau and to subsidize member events. All AMIA members get a $5 discount, so consider joining today!


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. After course completion, one has 10 chances to pass the exam with a 70% pass rate. The cover page from the Marijuana Control Board, the signed course exam certificate, a 2x2 passport sized photo (if you live outside Anchorage or Fairbanks), and a photo 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, starting May 23, 2018, applicants will also have to undergo a state background check. Lesson 12 of the course has the test as well as all the directions you need to get the card from the state.

This course is broken up into 11 lessons, each having between one and three videos between 3 and 8 minutes in length. Transcripts are included with each lesson because we know that 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 again so you've got a couple of options to register.

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.

2. Pay through Paypal: Once you click the button below, the bottom option allows you to pay as a guest without setting up an account. I will get an email from Paypal. If that's the email you would like your course link sent to, you're done! As soon as I am notified of the payment, I will enter you into the back office 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.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but I guess we all have to get used to this! Even AMCO is in the same position.

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