As part of the CGA’s commitment to expand services to the Canadian gaming industry, the association has partnered with the iGaming Academy to launch the CGA Academy, a full online training solution, including up-to-date compliance and skills training courses and a robust Learning Management System (LMS), all specialized for the gaming industry.
The association has been planning this expansion into training for some time as part of its mandate, and has chosen to work with the iGaming Academy because of its focus on up-to-date content, customized solutions, and superior services.
“As we pursue our mandate of education and advocacy, we are thrilled to partner with iGaming Academy to provide quality learning and development opportunities that have been designed specifically for the Canadian gaming industry,” said Paul Burns, President and CEO, CGA.
“Having access to up-to-date and relevant training is important given the rapidly changing and increasingly technology-driven nature of our industry, and we look forward to expanding the CGA Academy over the years to come.”
iGaming Academy, part of The Conexus Group, trains over 30,000 professionals every year across more than 100 companies in more than 45 countries. The company specializes in industry-specific compliance and product eLearning and has extensive experience training professionals of all levels within online gaming, land-based casinos, lotteries, and betting shops.
Training will be available in an interactive online format through the CGA Academy portal, and companies will have the option to create their own bespoke online learning portal from the ground up, with the ability to customise course selection, training variables and assign, track and easily report on employee progress.
The collaboration will set a unified standard of gaming education across Canada covering topics such as Canadian Anti-Money Laundering, Sports Betting, COVID-19 Readiness, Responsible Gaming, CRM, and many more. Staff will receive access through a training portal, via individual accounts. Certificates will be available for download upon successful completion of the training and assessments.
“This collaboration with CGA offers operators in Canada a route to conformity through training with the relevant jurisdictional regulations,” added Jamie Debono, Managing Partner, iGaming Academy. “It’s also future-proofed, with any changes to regulation being applied directly to the training. We’re excited to be bringing a growing portfolio of training for learners in the region The CGA Academy will ensure that gaming companies in Canada can easily access high quality, regulator-approved training content year-round.”
