    Lightbulb How To Become A Card Dealer/Croupier?

    I have always admired the hand skills and the sharpness of the card dealers in casinos. How do you become card dealer or I think croupier is more correct? Is there a school to train in?

    Many of the casinos actually provide their own training classes to potential employees but there are also schools which do offer that type of study. Most of them are little specialist schools located near casino areas like Las Vegas. One of the biggest schools that I'm aware of would be the Casino Dealer College which has campuses in four US states.

    Gambling has been very popular since time immemorial. It has witnessed an explosion in recent times with unprecedented interest in prestigious poker tournaments which offer prizes in the range of multimillion dollars. According to estimates, 32 million people take part in gambling, be it of any form, every year. This number is about increase.

    In spite of online casinos being popular, croupiers are in great demand in casinos. It is also an interesting and popular way of making a living. There are plenty of jobs for croupiers in cruise ships as well as innumerable possibilities overseas. You would get to travel around the world and also earn good income simultaneously. Dealers and croupiers work a number of tables in a casino, be it throwing dice, spinning a roulette wheel or dealing cards.

    The training that is given is thorough in order to ensure that dealers see to it that all the players follow the rules of the casino and the right chips are calculated and also distributed after every bet. You have to be an expert with numbers as well as capable of concentrating for long time spans. You also need to have excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to remain tactful and stay calm when losing customers lose their temper. Most of the casinos train croupiers in house. So, you have to apply to casinos directly as and when they have vacancies for trainees. At the time of the interview, you could be tested for your mental math in order to find out if you are able to calculate odds and payments successfully. A training session might usually last about 6 to 8 weeks and then you could start actual work. You would have to apply for a gaming license prior to starting work.

    Generally most people will apply directly to the Casino's to begin an in-house training program, this is beneficial as you end up with a guaranteed job at the end of it assuming you make the grade. I hope you are good with numbers and can work well under pressure, it can be a tough career. You will also spend a lot of time on your feet. Career progression can be good with opportunities to progress from a croupier to pit boss to management positions with experience. Good luck anyway!
