Seamless integration through Zapier
Cannabis Success Story
Cannabis Success Story
Cannabis Community College was founded in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. Cannabis Community College offers state-specific education for all legal markets in the United States and general education for the states that have yet to legalize it. All the courses on their platform are designed and taught by industry experts with highly respectable, successful careers in the cannabis industry. During the disastrous period of COVID-19, many well-known and lesser-known businesses were shut down or put on a hiatus. However, due to the innovative and reliable approach of distributing online courses, the college managed to boost its business with a cost-effective alternative to traditional in-person courses. Cannabis Community College is considered an “essential business” in legal markets.
Cannabis Community College was growing, and so was the course demand. Not only for their candidates but also for their instructors. For Cannabis Community College, it was essential to provide a clean, stable, and seamless experience for knowledge testing. They required an all-in-one solution for e-learning and knowledge examination that would help them upscale their business and turn the certification process into a seamless experience for both candidates and instructors.
They were looking for an affordable solution to grow and expand with them. They had a growing number of users that needed to be appropriately accommodated.
After careful consideration, they decided to choose YouTestMe GetCertified. The CEO of Cannabis Community College had this to say about YouTestMe GetCertified:
“A software that delivers and a support team that cares! The features cover all our needs and so much more at an affordable rate with the option to grow and expand based on the number of users, so it grows with your company. It is a learning curve, but I am impatient and want to know everything immediately. The support team, however, is excellent and very responsive! The main reasons for switching to YouTestMe GetCertified are its features, functions, reliability, support services, and ability to scale.”
– Christi McAdams – Global Cannabis Industry Networking Group, CEO
From there, YouTestMe GetCertified automated the entire certification process for Cannabis Community College. The college had a rising number of users, which would have been a thorough and painstaking manual process.
The solution was straightforward. The administrator creates the training course with attached tests in YouTestMe GetCertified, ready and available on their website for students. This method allowed for an efficient system.
The courses are available on the website, and the students can purchase them there. This is accomplished through the Zapier integration, which we will discuss shortly, between the college website and YouTestMe GetCertified, set up by the YouTestMe team. The integration allows a seamless experience for Cannabis Community College students since they don’t have to navigate to any other platform to take the course. They browse, purchase, and take the course and certification exams directly on the website.
Once the course is purchased, students’ profiles are created through the Zapier Integration in YouTestMe GetCertified and redirected to the training course through an embedded link. Zaps represent workflows that connect your apps (such as a website, in this case) to automate repetitive tasks. Therefore the process is seamless and automated as the student transitions from the website to the YouTestMe GetCertified platform. And with the addition of white labeling, to fit your organization’s design, the student shouldn’t even notice a difference. Another example of such workflow is the creation of users automatically in the YouTestMe system when entered into Google Sheets. And the best part is – integration through Zapier is easily built without any development experience.
Zapier integration can make the workflow very powerful.
Once Cannabis Community College students complete the training course, they have to do a final three-part test. Upon completing all three tests, they are awarded a certificate.
The certificate is completely customized to fit the Cannabis branding and designed by the Cannabis administrator. Certificates should represent true company values, and that is what YouTestMe GetCertified is striving towards. Custom certificates can be customized from the title to the layout, style, and validity period. If you want to include a custom organization and certificate logo, the text, and its background, the possibilities for design are endless.
The administrator can access predefined candidate reports or build custom ones.
No additional labor was required from the Cannabis Community College staff; the process was completely automated through the Zapier integration and made easy to use. By using YouTestMe GetCertified, they were able to administer the training course process remotely, safely, and efficiently.
The Cannabis Community College could speed up its training and test-taking processes considerably. YouTestMe GetCertified saved them long hours per employee. Not only that, but through the reporting system, it has become easy to see the candidates’ progression.
In closing, implementing the YouTestMe platform has hugely benefited the Cannabis Community College. Certification time has been cut drastically, costs have gone down, and more people can safely do their courses remotely. YouTestMe GetCertified is there to help people have a faster testing process and feel the effects and differences immediately.
Not to mention, thanks to the Zapier integration, it allows us to automate data exchange between YouTestMe GetCertified and +1,500 applications and make the workflow powerful. Overall, it allows for greater flexibility and automation in the certification process, making it easier for users to manage and analyze data and have a seamless experience.
It accommodates according to their organization, making room for growth and advancement.
