BALTIMORE The Community College of Baltimore County and Horseshoe Casino Baltimore are partnering to operate a “CCBC Casino Dealer Academy.” Housed onsite at Horseshoe Casino Baltimore, this new academy will give individuals the necessary skills to compete for jobs locally and within Maryland’s growing casino industry as a table games dealer.
Students of the CCBC Casino Dealer Academy receive instruction covering introduction to gaming, carnival games and blackjack. Additional instruction in other major games such as roulette, baccarat and craps are available for experienced, working dealers looking to expand their repertoire of major games.
Classes are flexible and can be completed in as little as four weeks. Training at the Academy is offered at no cost to students.
“We are extremely excited to enter into this partnership with Horseshoe Casino Baltimore,” said CCBC President Sandra Kurtinitis. “The gaming industry has grown exponentially in Maryland, and with that comes the need for trained individuals with the expertise to fill job vacancies. The CCBC Casino Dealer Academy will allow us to do that for the gaming industry. It’s the perfect marriage between local business and CCBC to address a current workforce training need.”
Casino dealers are currently in high demand in Maryland. Dealers can earn more than $40,000 annually plus benefits. And, hours are extremely flexible working within this 24/7 entertainment industry.
