HAMILTON TOWNSHIPAtlantic Cape Community College has received a $41,000 Casino Reinvestment Development Authority grant to upgrade training equipment at the college’s Casino Career Institute.

The money will pay for updated CCI gaming equipment to train students for casino industry employment.

“The college is most appreciative of receiving this grant from the CRDA for equipment that will enhance the quality of instruction for students attending our nationally recognized Casino Career Institute,” said Peter Mora, Atlantic Cape president.

Atlantic Cape has a longstanding, positive collaboration with CRDA that is due in great part to our shared vision of serving both the hotel casino industry and the residents of Atlantic City," Mora continued. "This award will further support the efforts of Atlantic Cape Community College to fulfill our legacy of truly serving as the community's college."

The equipment will be used in the planned hospitality wing at Atlantic Cape’s Worthington Atlantic City Campus. The hospitality wing will feature 6,000 square feet for instructional rooms to teach students how to conduct black jack, craps, roulette, baccarat, poker and carnival games. It will also house a laboratory for the college’s electronic equipment technician training program to prepare students for careers as slot technicians, vending technicians and arcade games technicians.

Atlantic Cape’s Casino Career Institute has prepared more than 50,000 graduates for casino jobs since 1978. CCI was the nation’s first gaming school affiliated with a fully accredited community college and licensed by the New Jersey Casino Control Commission.
