Massachusetts schools offer gambling classes
Fifteen Massachusetts-based community colleges offer their students gambling classes. Culinary Arts, Tourism, Casino and Hospitality (CATCH) is the name of the casino education. “After the summer we will add gambling classes to our curricula,” according to a spokesperson for Bristol Community College.
Grade in casino management
Community colleges need a license from the Massachusetts Gaming Commission to offer casino classes
. Bristol Community College is the only institute in Massachusetts that enables students to obtain a two-year grade in casino management operations. Bristol Community College has locations in Fall River, Attleboro, New Bedford and Taunton.
There are plans to build a gambling venue near the Bristol Community College campus in Taunton, which was initiated by the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe. Springfield and Everett will also build casinos after citizens voted in favor of the plans.
Skilled casino workers
Middleborough is home to Massasoit Community College, which also offers casino education. “There is a high demand for qualified casino employees,” according to John Morosco, manager of the Massasoit Community College campus in Middleborough. Morosco’s gambling classes are themed around game rules
, casino management, and gambling legislation.
