Most casinos today have become quite standardized and have high levels of expectations from their dealers. Casinos today do not select dealers if they are not formally trained to be a dealer. Choosing the right dealer is very important for casinos since their reputation depends on it. For this reason it is very important to attend a casino dealer school to get formally trained.
Half the success of an individual in being able to get a job at a good casino depends on the school he/she selects and attends. A good casino dealing school can make or break the career of a dealer. There are plenty of points which need to be considered before selecting a school.
Visit the school
Before making any decision it is important to personally visit the school. Check if there are a lot of students attending the school and that there are dealing equipments which are used at the school. The most important thing is that you must feel comfortable in attending the classes. There will generally be a school representative who will explain prospective students about how the school operates. Do not hesitate to ask questions if you have any. There will generally be instructional booklets which would be given to you for further information. Check carefully what kind of license you will be given at the end.
Another important thing to consider while selecting a school should be the qualification of the instructors. The instructors should have real credentials. In most cases, the instructors would have been employed as full time dealers in their own respective games. If there is only one instructor teaching all the games at the school, it is best to avoid it. You would not be able to get all the coverage that in-depth knowledge that you will need in order to learn all the games. It is always best to learn one game from one instructor. Most good schools have dedicated instructors for individual games. It is also important that your instructors should be available to you throughout the day.
Tests and graduations
Check the requirements for their tests and graduation. In most schools, you will need to pass the graduation test which will be set by the instructors. If the test is cleared, you will get a graduation certificate and will be able to apply for a job at a casino. A good school will also help you deal with the interviews.
It is always best to look for a school which will allow you to come back for a short course even after you have graduated in order to refresh the games if necessary. Typically, there might be an extra charge for it but it is always better to have that option.
Always select a school which has good credentials. The school must be considered to be an expert in the field and the instructors must have enough know-how and expertise in the games that they teach. A good reputable school will add a lot of weight to your application in prospective work places like good casinos.
