Ten Complete Casino Training

without comments

The Otoe-Missouria Tribe and Pawnee Nation College recently partnered to bring the “Tribal Gaming Regulatory Initiative” program to management employees of the tribe’s 7 Clans Paradise Casino. The program is an eight-week comprehensive course designed to teach participants the regulatory issues involved in a casino operation, from federal, tribal and tribal-state compacts.

Ten casino managers successfully completed the course which is approved by the National Indian Gaming Association and conducted by the staff of Pawnee Nation College. Primary instructor for the course was Andrew Gray. At graduation ceremonies held December 3 at the Otoe-Missouria Tribal Agency, Gray stressed that the managers had earned not a certificate, but rather a certification in Indian Gaming Regulatory Management.

Tribal Chairman John R. Shotton congratulated the managers and urged them to continue their education, for it holds the keys to the future of the tribe. Shotton holds two degrees from the University of Oklahoma, a bachelor’s in Business Administration and a master’s in Public Administration. “This particular training will be extremely beneficial and we hope to continue with more training of this type for our casino employees,” said Oliver Littlecook, who helped to coordinate the program and is the Employee Relations Manager/Trainer.

Successfully completing the course and earning certification were Thomas Butler, Danielle Butler, Bridget Adams, Bradley Moore Jr., Tara Begs His Own, Kim Dent, Brian Gooden, John Pratt, Crystal Jimenez and Curtis Burgess.
