Project Description

In 2019, Bridget Manley helped develop a second version of this software training course for Cannabis Industry Institute.

In addition to an overview that introduced learners to the basic organization and navigational features of the software, the training also included sections specific to cultivations, processing facilities and retail shops.

Each of these three sections included step-by-step instructions for performing essential functions in the software.

After finishing the PowerPoint presentation, Bridget created a student guide that synthesized the four sections into a single easy-to-use guide that learners could use during the training and, later, as a reference in their operations. The guide includes activities that allow learners to apply their knowledge using real-life scenarios.

This curriculum has since been adapted for use in online webinars and in-person training.
