Baltimore County, MD – Community College of Baltimore County Continuing Education will host Open Houses for its new Casino Dealer Training program during February. To see what opportunities this career path has to offer, joins us on Thursday, Feb. 12 at 10 a.m., Monday, Feb. 16 at 4 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 18 at 6 p.m. or Saturday, Feb. 21 at 10 a.m. in Room 502 at CCBC Owings Mills, 10300 Grand Central Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21117. No pre-registration for these open houses is necessary.

The legalization of gambling in the state of Maryland has opened many employment opportunities. At CCBC you can get the skills necessary to become a Casino Table Game Dealer at casinos in Maryland and across the USA. After taking a short series of classes (from 6 and 10 weeks), you can earn a CCBC Casino Dealer Certificate. Prerequisites for this program require the successful completion of “Introduction for Casino Gaming” which includes “Training for Intervention Procedures” (TIPS), an alcohol awareness certification.

Then students must complete a certification in either Poker or any two of the following games:
  • Baccarat
  • Blackjack
  • Craps
  • Pai gow poker
  • Pai gow tiles
  • Roulette

Baltimore County residents are eligible for CCBC Continuing Education Opportunity Grants and other financial aid and payment options for this program. Anyone can register for the program but there are out-of-county fees for non-county residents.
