Students in the LAB will be taught how to operate a casino with the help of real imitation of the casino including tables, machines and lights.
The Lab in Menomonie, Wisconsin, was created in fall 2007 with the aim of training employees for gaming establishments. This was due to the decrease in the number of employees at casinos and other recreational activities. As there are over 570 casinos in the country, there are lots of opportunities for the graduates to find a job.
It is important to note that students will be taught how to manage and operate a casino and not to gamble. Students get everything necessary to feel like in the real casino- tables, felts, chips, lights and even cameras to make sure they catch the payouts the dealer makes.
The classes include casino management, tourism, economics of gambling establishment, psychological issues in gambling as addiction.
Thanks to this there will be over 350,000 additional jobs in the U.S with benefits and employee wages totaling almost $11 billion.
