Fundamentals of Regulation for Land-Based Casinos

Office/Remote Location

Room 220


No matter what functional role one holds within a regulatory or policy making body, the complexity and breadth of policies, procedures, and operational oversight creates knowledge gaps. Few structured learning opportunities exist within the lifespan of a typical regulator to provide rigorous and comprehensive learning. The International Center for Gaming Regulation at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) has developed this certificate program to provide exposure to all areas of the regulatory ecosystem - establishing a baseline of knowledge necessary for regulatory professionals across the world’s many gaming jurisdictions.

Delivered by expert faculty in an executive education classroom format, the curriculum has been strategically designed by academic faculty and regulatory practitioners at the International Center for Gaming Regulation to provide holistic learning of all aspects of gaming regulation.
