ABOUT US

Philosophy

CEG Dealer School is committed to providing an education of excellence that meets each student’s interests, abilities, and needs for learning how to deal casino table games. We challenge each student to become self-aware about the rules, and nuances for each game that they learn. Here at CEG Dealer School we help develop intellectual independence, learning how to handle specific situations while on the table, and a sense of responsibility toward others both within the School and in the community at large.

Students are given a curriculum and comprehensive instruction to learn the rules and specific skills necessary to learn each game. They will apply their training in a Las Vegas style Casino atmosphere, and to learn the proper procedures, the first time, so that they can move up faster within the casino business. All students at CEG Dealer School will be given custom individualized attention to ensure that they have an exceptional skillset of speed, accuracy and game protection that will make them become a desired employee in the gaming industry. CEG Dealer School will strive to maintain a high graduation rate as well as high placement rate.
