No matter what functional role one holds within a gaming regulatory or policy making body, the complexity and breadth of policies, procedures, and operational oversight creates knowledge gaps. There are few structured learning opportunities within the professional lifespan of a typical regulator to provide rigorous and comprehensive learning. This certificate program provides exposure to all areas of the regulatory ecosystem and establishes 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 a holistic understanding of all aspects of gaming regulation.

Topics covered include:

  • Day 1: History of the Regulatory Process; Public Policies on Casino Gaming; Casino Gaming Terminology; Gaming Regulatory Structure, Functions & Responsibilities
