The most important thing
is to visit the school. Make sure
there are a lot of students and that the dealing equipment is authentic
casino quality. You should feel comfortable learning in this
Did the school
representative take the time to answer all your questions?
During your initial interview at Casino Gaming School we will explain
how we teach games, show you the instructional booklets that are
included with the course, and explain how you can learn at your own
Dealing instructors should
be full-time dealers or have extensive dealing and casino experience.
Look for dealers who have real credentials. Most instructors are currently employed as full-time
dealers in their respective games.
Avoid a school if it has
one instructor who teaches all the games. You won't get the
detailed coverage you need to learn a game properly. You'll get the best
lessons from instructors who teach one specific game. Casino Gaming
School has dedicated instructors for every game.
Price isn't everything.
Some schools will sit you down in front of a TV and let you learn
from a DVD. This is a waste of your time. There is no
substitute for hands-on, interactive instruction. Learn your game from a
qualified instructor in a friendly casino atmosphere.
The person answering the
phone should not be your instructor. Your instructor should be
available to you throughout the day, not interrupted by phone calls or
tied up in sales meetings. Our instructors spend all their time teaching you
how to become a casino dealer.
Will you be properly
tested prior to graduation? Our students must pass one graduation
test from their instructor and a final dealing test by myself. When you
graduate you'll be ready to audition at a casino to get your first
dealing job. We'll teach you what you need to know to get your
first dealing job and we'll be there for you as you work your way up to
a dealing career in a first class casino.
Look for a school that
will let you come back to refresh or update your game. Once
you've successfully completed a course at Casino Gaming School you'll be
permanently listed in our computer. You are welcome to come back at any
time to refresh your game -- at no charge.
Does the school have
credibility? Are they considered experts? Casino Gaming School is
frequently featured on The Travel Channel and I have hosted
several casino gaming TV specials and tournaments (see our
Nick on TV and Press
Coverage pages). The fact that we are
considered dealing experts by the media is a great testimonial to the
quality of Casino Gaming School.
