Baha Mar has announced an opportunity for training and recruitment in its ongoing efforts to recruit Bahamians to fill the more than 4,000 positions at the luxury resort, which will be home to the largest casino in the Caribbean.

The Baha Mar Academy will be offering a free Casino Dealer Trainee Program to provide training for the games that will be featured in the state-of-the-art, 100,000 sq ft Baha Mar Casino.

Additionally, trainees will learn Baha Mar-specific service standards and supervisory skills.

“The Baha Mar Academy will teach the technical and soft skills during its training programmes,” says Paul Pusateri, chief operating officer at Baha Mar.

“However, the most important characteristic of a Baha Mar team member is showing a commitment to the Baha Mar Standards. We are looking for people who have an aptitude for service and a passion for hospitality.”

No experience or prior casino dealer or gaming supervisor training is required to apply. The opportunity is open to those who would like to begin or to further a career in gaming as part of the casino team at Baha Mar.

“Baha Mar is living up to its promise to transform The Bahamas. We are investing in an unprecedented level of training to ensure that Bahamians from every community who are willing to invest in themselves have the chance to join Baha Mar. Together, we will create a better future not just for ourselves and our families but also for our country,” adds Pusateri.

The training program will consist of morning and evening courses taking place three and a half days per week for up to eighteen weeks.

Trainees should be at least 18 years old and submit an application to the careers section at www.bahamar.com with the title Dealer – Trainee Program by May 10, 2014. Classes are scheduled to begin in July 2014.

Participants who successfully complete the programme will be extended an offer to join the Baha Mar Casino team.

Representatives from the Bahamas Financial Services Board and the Insurance Commission of The Bahamas will attend the annual Risk & Insurance Management Society Conference, which takes place in Denver, Colorado, April 27-30.

Royal Caribbean International recently announced that Quantum of the Seas, will make its home port in Shanghai (Baoshan), China, bringing the company's most innovative ship to the world's fastest-growing cruise market.
