    So you think you want to work in a casino? CCAC is pleased to offer casino dealer training classes through a partnership with Rivers Casino. By completing one or several of our training courses, you can obtain the skills you need to join the exciting casino gaming industry.

    Since opening in February 2016, CCAC's Casino Dealer School has been training casino employees as well as those seeking employment in the casino industry. Together, CCAC and Rivers Casino have created a strong partnership to provide casino training in a variety of table games. The school is approved by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board and is recognized by all casinos in the state as well as some out-of-state casinos. Students in the entry-level course receive 120 hours of training in blackjack and banked games, including several poker derivative games. Individuals who successfully complete the course are eligible to work as a dealer. A poker class is also offered for students seeking employment as a poker room dealer. In addition, students are auditioned as part of the curriculum, which boosts their chances of securing a position.
