A few weeks ago, we announced in a blog post that we were rolling out our Mobius Lead Operator certification program. The response from both our partners and the public was overwhelming! We are happy to report that we conducted our first “test class” on March 5, and our official inaugural session on Thursday, March 7. Our first students came from Aurora’s Mountain facility in Cremona, Alberta. Dion and Lucas are experienced Mobius users, and Jeremy is relatively new to the system. Jeremy says, “I thought since I was new to the M108, I’d be left in the dust, but starting with the basics and progressing to the more in-depth info made it easy to catch up.”
The full-day session included 7 modules that were a mix of hands-on training, classroom, and video instruction, and everyone passed both their practical and written final certification exams with flying colours. Our purpose for developing this training program is based on our observation that there is a large gap in the current cannabis industry educational offerings. Most programs focus only on the cultivation side, with very little instruction on the harvesting and processing stage. That’s a mistake, and a disservice to students. They need to know how to grow the perfect crop, of course, but what is the potential impact to the bottom line if they don’t know how to properly harvest it? The harvesting process has been an afterthought for most of the development of our industry, but as an LP scales, it needs to become a priority.
“Even though I’ve been using the Mobius for almost a year, I still took a lot away from this course. There’s a lot of info that I didn’t know that I can take back to our facility and further optimize our trimming workflow.”
Our next session coming up on Wednesday, March 13 is fully-booked, with students flying in from LPs in Winnipeg and the Toronto area. We will be releasing training dates for April very soon. This course is open to current partners as well as anyone in the industry looking for post-harvest instruction. Please visit Mobius Lead Operator certification program for more information.
