Casino Career Institute Classes Are Forming Now

June 27, 2012

The Casino Career Institute at Atlantic Cape Community College has prepared more than 50,000 people for rewarding careers in gaming and continues to offer top-notch training for those who wish to enter the casino profession as it expands throughout the region.

The Half the Time at Half the Price Program offers table games professionals an opportunity to increase their value and marketability to employers by learning a new game in a short-term, low-cost program.

CCI table games alumni who have graduated more than three years ago can refresh their skills as they return to the gaming workforce with an Alumni Refresher Program. Graduates may take the refresher program course only for the games they previously have taken with CCI.

Alumni who have graduated from CCI within the past three years can revive their skills with the Alumni Practice Program.

Classes currently offered are Craps, Baccarat, Poker, Pai Gow Tiles, Roulette and Pai Gow Poker. In addition, CCI offers Introduction to Casino Games/Blackjack, which prepares students for entry into any primary or secondary game.

CCI also provides training in non-dealing casino professions such as Surveillance Training.

Gaming classes begin every two weeks. For more information, or to register, call (609) 343-4829 or visit www.atlantic.edu/cci
