CCAC DEALER TRAINING SCHOOL
CCAC has partnered with Rivers Casino to offer Dealer training classes. Most new dealers need the introductory class: BlackJack/ Banked games. Students will also be tested for math and language skills at the first class. This class is 100 hours of training and provide the basis for new dealers to be employable at the PA casinos. This course includes instruction in blackjack, 3 and 4 card poker, Let it Ride, Mississippi slide and Big 6 Wheel. This course and all the dealer classes are offered at the CCAC Allegheny Campus in the dealer school located in the Library Building room 112L.
Part of the approved, PGCB curriculum involves being auditioned to test skills that are achieved. Currently, CCAC partners with the Rivers Casino and they complete the audition throughout the class. If Rivers Casino finds the student is a viable candidate, conditional job offers are made to these individuals.
Other classes offered through this program include classes in Craps, Roulette, Mini Baccarrat. Pai Gow, but these are primarily for experienced dealers. CCAC now offers a Poker class as well.
