Gaming Occupations

Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

All gaming workers must be licensed by a regulatory agency such as the state gaming commission or control board. In addition, many schools in resort areas offer training classes that lead to certification for workers in specific games and skills. Other schools may offer certification to students who have learned all the games. This award is called a certificate of professional casino croupier and can prepare an employee for nearly any game table position. In most states, applicants must have a license, or gaming badge, in order to participate in a training session. Most licenses, renewable every two years, cost about $50.
