Certified Cannabis Seed Counter

*Certification requires completion of the Calculating Cannabis course and continued education through the annual NACAT Pros Certified Membership

If you’re sick of trying to prove your worth to companies looking to pay the least amount of money for accounting services, and want the world from you in return… you are not alone. 

Regardless of what industry you primarily serve, competition is steep. It’s really hard to differentiate yourself from others in your space. In fact, with the onset of automation technologies, companies value accounting even less than before. Unless you’ve chosen an industry that is highly regulated with lots of rules and nuances – and required specialized training to keep clients out of trouble – you could struggle to remain relevant. 

But the cannabis industry is different.

Cannabis laws and guidelines are still new, leaving best practices in flux. This uncertainty means that trained accounting professionals are in high demand. Understanding technology and ever-changing processes in accounting make you invaluable to a cannabis company. The catch is that what makes the cannabis industry unique also makes it nearly impossible for accounting professionals to serve these companies without proper training. The guidance doesn’t exist and the rules are being written.

So, how do accounting professionals get up to speed quickly so that they can best serve this industry?

Here’s where we come in

It’s no secret that learning the cannabis industry can be intimidating for accounting professionals. With a lack of resources, many don’t know where to start or how to help their current clients maintain compliance and audit-ready records.

With the Calculating Cannabis course, our goal is to get you onboarding new Cannabis clients and receiving retainers that show your value in just 60 days. In addition, we’ll provide you with the knowledge you need to feel confident serving clients in this niche.

Your Mission...

SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT, is to become a certified cannabis seed counter and land your first (or next) cannabis client in 60 days or less. With a certification under your belt, you can expand your accounting practice into the cannabis niche with confidence, avoiding feelings of overwhelm and confusion.

You can say goodbye to clients who don’t value you. You can trade the same old grind for a rewarding and fascinating niche that continues to grow exponentially. You will have a new practice as a cannabis accounting provider that can provide you with the revenue you’ve been dreaming of.

Meet Your Subject Matter Experts

Metrc Compliance

Seed-to-Sale compliance and how that integrates with the accounting work that we do is crucial for the simple fact that it is a necessary evil that states have mandated. Accounting professionals need to know how to navigate the systems, reconcile, and properly report information to the state so that clients don’t get flagged for audit, or get their licensing revoked for non-compliance.

We’ve invited subject matter expert Alex Rubin, CEO of Cannasun Consulting and former co-chair of the Good Manufacturing Practices and Quality Management Systems subcommittee within the MED’s Science and Policy workgroup to lead an in-depth training on seed-to-sale. As part of your certification, you will have everything that you need in order to confidently navigate seed-to-sale compliance. Members will get a look inside of Metrc to see the reports that are provided so that they aren’t going in blind with theoretical information. This is a unique opportunity as you must have a cannabis business license in order to gain access to these systems.


Retail Profitability

Retail KPI

By the time legal cannabis products make it to the end consumer, the pricing (including tax) may be much higher than what people are used to paying on the black market. Due to increasing competition, it is not uncommon for operators to unconsciously price themselves out of profitability, which is why we have expert guidance from Krysta Raymer, CEO and Co-Founder of Vetrina Group providing unmatched advice on how you, the accountant, must know and understand the KPIs that are key to profitability. With razor thin margins and undercapitalized startups trying to maintain a presence in the industry, our value as accountants lies not only in the day to day seed counting, but in how we can add to the bottom line of the business.

We are very proud of this guidance because we don’t just say accountants are more valuable in this industry, we show accountants how to provide true CFO level guidance and support for companies that need it most. You’ll learn how to build a solid foundation for retail operators which encompasses quality of sale, inventory, people, and marketing so that you can provide the comprehensive guidance that CEOs need in order to operate profitably.
