Classes are generally scheduled Monday through Thursday, in three sessions: 7:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., 1-6 p.m., and in the evenings as needed. Classes begin monthly and run from 40 to 375 hours. For the best hiring opportunities, CCI recommends that students begin with Introduction to Casino Games, then select one primary game and one, preferably two, secondary games.

Besides the introductory course (40 hours), CCI will offer Blackjack (80 hours), Craps (160 hours), Baccarat (80 hours), Poker (80 hours), Pai Gow Tiles (80 hours), Roulette (80 hours), Pai Gow Poker (80 hours), Carnival Games (40 hours), Slot Technician (375 hours) and Surveillance Training (96 hours).

A tuition installment plan is available. Financial assistance is available to those who qualify. A certificate of completion will be awarded upon successful completion of a course.

As part of ACCC, the institute offers extensive college services to CCI students, including training on a large mock casino floor with a slot laboratory and a student lounge. Free and secure parking is also available.
