Anne Arundel Community College recently celebrated 100 students’ completion of training that makes them eligible to work as casino dealers through a grant from the Walmart Brighter Futures 2.0 Project.

AACC is one of 12 community colleges in the nation selected to participate in the $3.5 million grant from the Walmart Foundation to the League for Innovation in the Community College. This grant funding allows AACC to provide middle-income job training and services to eligible students.

Students can earn a continuing education certificate of completion in blackjack, mini baccarat and carnival games. Some of the students who just completed the program already are employed.

In addition to specific job training, individuals receive career counseling in searching for jobs, résumé writing and interviewing techniques to help them communicate their skills effectively to potential employers.
