Hello, and thank you for your interest in CEG Casino Dealer School.
My name is Alex. I am the founder and Executive Director of CEG. I am often asked, “Alex, why did you open a dealer school?”
Years ago I trained to be a casino dealer. My mother signed me up for blackjack and craps courses at a popular dealer school in Las Vegas. I ended up struggling in class because there were too many students and too few instructors. The students and I were left alone to figure it out for ourselves and we picked up each other’s bad habits. In the end, I got lucky with persistence, constant practice and experienced family members. Unfortunately, most of my classmates dropped out or ended up at dead-end casino jobs.
For years I dreamed about opening my own Casino Dealer School. I was convinced that the old, antiquated dealer schools had lost touch with the real needs of today's students and casinos. My vision included teachers from the best casinos using the best methods to train the best dealers that more Casinos would want to hire.
In February of 2014, with every penny I could find or borrow, I managed to open CEG Casino Dealer School. That first year of living my dream was very tough. There were lots of sleepless nights and ramen noodles.
With zero money for marketing, I had to rely on the success of my dealer students and their word of mouth recommendations. In June 2018, we outgrew our old location and expanded to our current campus on Decatur & Sahara.
If you are in need of casino dealer training, I personally invite you to give me a call or come say hello.
