Featured on CBS Sacramento, The Casino College reports that it's one of the nation's largest casino schools, upping the ante in card-dealing instruction by employing casino-experienced instructors who pass on their deck mastery and table knowledge. The 90-hour poker course deals out professional advice about rules, etiquette, management, and techniques for avoiding paper cuts. Students will learn, play, and deal games such as stud, Omaha, and hold 'em, shuffling and dealing with Kem cards and clay chips on casino-quality tables. During the 65-hour blackjack course, future card-flappers will practice backing up the deck, shuffling, and pitch and payoff procedures. All students will also gain valuable insight into table-management techniques such as interacting smoothly with customers, dealing with security issues, and staring bravely into the depths of a 10-gallon hat.
At The Casino College, all aspiring card whisperers receive dealer certification and assistance from the school's dealer job-placement service. Books and fees are included in this deal, but the ability to deal at lightning speed is only acquired by years of carefully practiced jazz hands. Taking extra time to complete a course will not result in any additional fees.
