“We set up a training room that replicates the inside of a casino, so the teaching is as real as it can get,” Westerfield said. “Program we have fine tuned over and over to hit on how people do learn, and what we want them to learn the right way.”

Course lengths vary depending on which game you’re training for.

MGM Springfield will be holding career and gaming school information sessions on Saturday.
