Through its Center for Workforce Development, Montgomery County Community College will offer dealer training for potential employees of the Valley Forge Casino Resort. Slated to open in the spring of 2012 at the Valley Forge Convention Complex in King of Prussia, the resort casino will create about 500 new jobs.
“We look forward to our partnership with MCCC on a great program that will put people to work,” said Valley Forge Casino Resort President and CEO Saverio R. Scheri III. “Careers in table games are exciting and fun. MCCC will provide an excellent training program that will ensure Valley Forge has the best table games dealers for our spring opening.”
Taught in a state-of-the-art mock casino, training courses include: Introduction to Table Games; Blackjack/Carnival Games; Craps; Mini Baccarat; Roulette; and CPR. Students must be 18 years of age or older to participate in the training. Completion of the training does not guarantee employment with Valley Forge Casino Resort.
“Montgomery County Community College is pleased to be Valley Forge Casino Resort’s training partner for this exciting initiative that will have a positive economic impact on our region,” said College President Dr. Karen A. Stout. “The College has a proven track record of working with local and regional employers to meet their training and professional development needs.”
