Hollywood, FL, March 20, 2014 –(PR.com)– With millions of people out of work or underemployed, the Mizrachi brothers Mike and Rob along with longtime friend Stacy Matuson decided to expand their land based Poker Dealer School online, to help train a professional workforce worldwide.
“We get calls from all over the world from people wanting to attend our Florida State Sanctioned land based school in Hollywood, Florida, but most of them cannot afford to travel and stay for the 6 weeks it takes to complete our course. When we were contacted by a local software developer of e-Learning courses (Whiz Gaming) to create an online version of our Professional Poker Dealer course, it was a no brainer,” said Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi, professional poker player and co-founder of the Mizrachi Dealer Academy.
Online schooling offers a variety of benefits for individuals and is becoming increasingly popular.
Regardless of where an individual lives, a major advantage of online courses, rather than attending a physical school is affordability and flexibility.
A casino or poker room looking to hire professional poker dealers generally pay dealers minimum wage. However, according to an article in Hcareers.com, a dealer’s total salary earned annually averages $32,000 to $58,000 a year, which may include benefits such as disability, health insurance, and pension, along with tips that account for roughly 50 to 80 percent of that salary.
Robert Mizrachi, President and co-founder of the Mizrachi Dealer Academy said “Both my brother and I have had great success as professional poker players, because we were professional poker dealers before. We feel that this online course will contribute to the growth of the Poker industry and it makes us proud to be able to contribute.”
To become employable, applicants without prior experience are typically required to complete a 4-6 week training program at a land based dealing school. The Mizrachi Dealer Academy online course makes it convenient for anyone, from anywhere to be trained as a professional poker dealer.
Dennis Nadeau, CEO of Whiz Gaming stated, “We’re excited to partner with one of the most recognized faces in the world of poker. This opens up a tremendous opportunity for those seeking a career in the growing casino industry, for people who need a cost effective and flexible option that an online course offers.”
