What People Are Saying...

Expanded Scope of Practice for My Fitness Business

Ian Walling, Elite Trainer and Life Strategists 

Being certified as a Competent Cannabis Consultant has opened up the door to me to become a Cannabis Advisor. I now feel confident to advise my clients and family members on the therapeutic aspected cannabis. The course has given me a new perspective on cannabis and cannabis use. I believe that this new knowledge will give a broader scope to my fitness business 

Additional Revenue Stream

Jordan McKnight, Personal Trainer & Fitness Manager

My clients have asked me about cannabis for years. Finally, there is a course that teaches personal trainers what they need to know to confidently and accurately answer their questions. With a price tag at less than $200 for a course that not only expands skills to include an in-demand service like cannabis support/advising but also gives 4 CECs (which we have to get anyway every year), to me it's a no brainer. Trainers are already booking Cannabis Consultations with their clients for additional revenue.

Current & Reliable Information for Trainers

Rob Montello, Fitness Professional, Psych & Kin.

In the ever evolving fitness field, people are always looking for the "edge" - when competing and training. Understanding how cannabis can support client goals gives me the edge as well because having current, reliable, evidence based information that can be shared easily makes me feel comfortable that I'm sharing quality information. I like that the course debunks the myths around cannabis and makes it clear when medical cannabis should be used vs. people "self medicating" with recreational. It's surprising how few people really "know" about cannabis - even if they've been using for years. The reality is that cannabis is a great supplement for health it's not just about getting high. I like that i have the tools to professionally explain the risks and benefits to my clients now.

A Lot of my Clients Use Medical Cannabis

Deidre Hatton, Kinesiologist & Fitness Model

A lot of my clients use medical cannabis to manage their pain, insomnia and/or anxiety It's amazing how significant the progress has been with those clients: increased stamina, improved motor function, increased flexibility, better sleep, reduced stress and inflammation, and so much more. I like that I now have a general understanding of what cannabinoid (THC or CBD) is required for what and how to help them find their therapeutic dose. A lot of people don't know where to get support with medical cannabis. I like that they can come to me.



    This online course takes 5-7 hours to complete for most learners.


    The tuition for this professional development course is $197.


    That's a great question! We want every healthcare provider who is in front of patients (and who wants to become cannabis competent!) to have access to the course content. However, due to Covid-19, not everyone can afford the tuition, which is why we are offering a "pay what you can" solution: to help reduce any financial barriers to accessing the course. We hope that people who can afford to pay the full price WILL - to offset those who can't.


    This course is designed for professionals who work with clients or patients that ask them about cannabis (Naturopaths, Chiropractors, Physiotherapists, Personal Trainers, Massage Therapists, etc) - to give them the tools they need to be competent when speaking to their patients about cannabis.


    The Cannabis Competent Consultant course is delivered using online learning technology. It is 100% virtual and on-demand. That means that you can consume the content at your own pace. Many students like to complete the course in an afternoon.


    ​Upon successful completion of the course, you will get a Cannabis Competent Consultant certification that can be printed and displayed in your office and/or attached to your CV.


    Yes, this course is compatible with any smart device (tablet, iPad, smart phone), as well as all laptops and computers (PC and Mac).


    The phone number and email address for the CanEdEm Hotline will be provided to you upon your commencement of the course. WHY DID WE CREATE THE CANEDEM HOTLINE? This course was created by nurses for nurses. We understand the peace of mind that is provided when someone is available to receive a call and answer your questions. This course doesn't expect you to be an expert in the cannabis sector but it does give you the competence and confidence to discuss cannabis with your patients. If you don't know the answer to something, just give us a call! We're here to help.
