Bimini, Bahamas – On May 2nd, Resorts World Bimini (RWB) will open a Casino Training School on the island to recruit and train a steady influx of Bahamians (primarily Biminites) in a variety of table games. The facility, within the Resorts World Bimini property and close to the Casino, will offer new and refresher classes in Roulette and Craps as well as the card games Baccarat, Blackjack and various formats of Poker.
The RWB Casino Training School is the natural progression of what has already begun at the Resort. Eleven Biminites were trained in Blackjack prior to the Casino opening in June 2013 and a further four successfully completed an 8-week American Roulette course in March of this year. Now to celebrate the opening of the training school a further 16 Biminites will undergo a Blackjack class with guarantees of employment for those who graduate.
A comprehensive training schedule has been mapped out for the remainder of 2014 and the original pioneers will also be given the opportunity to enhance their knowledge of the casino industry by adding additional games to their CV. An 8-week Craps class will commence May 5th, and classes in Roulette and Baccarat will follow thereafter.
“We are committed to providing not only employment but genuine career opportunities for the island’s residents and our intent is to recruit and train a steady flow of dealers to prepare for when the jetty and the hotel are finished”, says RWB President Dana Leibovitz. “Bimini is on the verge of becoming a year round destination, and when it does we will be ready to welcome visitors around the clock. Exciting times are ahead for the island and its residents, and Resorts World is honored to lead the way in this development.”
By November, Resorts World Bimini will have around 30 Biminite dealers, each skilled in at least two casino games. This will represent approximately 50% of the Resort’s total dealing staff.
Resorts World Bimini is operated by the Genting Group, a global company, founded in 1965, and the world’s largest Destination Resorts operator. Genting has Resorts World-branded properties in Asia, Europe, North America and on all four oceans through 43% ownership of Norwegian Cruise Line and Star Cruises brands. The company has a combined market capitalization of $45 billion and employs more than 50,000 people worldwide.
