Students who successfully complete two or more courses at the new Gaming School, and obtain a job with MGM Springfield will be eligible for the tuition reimbursement if they remain employed with MGM Springfield for one year after the property’s grand opening.
“This tuition reimbursement program is a real incentive to anyone considering enrollment in the new MCCTI Gaming School,” said Alex Dixon, General Manager, MGM Springfield. “This is a testament to our commitment to the future employees who will make THE SHOW possible here at MGM Springfield. We can’t wait for the first class of students to come through our career center doors, trained and ready to start down a successful new career path.”
Classes for the new MCCTI Gaming School are forming now, with first classes beginning Monday, February 26. Successful completion of two or more classes guarantees a graduate an audition with MGM Springfield, where they will find flexible full- and part-time table games dealer positions on day, swing and overnight shifts. No formal education is required to apply to the school, and beginners are welcome. MGM Springfield is seeking to hire 450 table games and poker dealers.
MCCTI is operated by Training and Workforce Options (TWO), a collaboration between Holyoke Community College and Springfield Technical Community College. MGM Springfield is scheduled to open in Q3 2018.
