iGaming Academy Extends Into Asia With Raffles Training

Online gambling training and skills development agency iGaming Academy has extended its resources to partner with Raffles Training Inc. in the South East Asian gambling market in the Philippines.

The iGaming Academy will develop a series of dedicated courses designed to strengthen all levels of employee training and skills growth by announcing a ‘first of its kind’ collaboration.

Via Raffles Training’s existing e-learning network, which has operated in the South-East Asian market since 2017, iGaming Academy will promote its new South East Asian gambling tutorials.

Customised modules developed by iGaming Academy will cover all critical business elements, including enforcement, customer service, AML, data protection and product management, with regard to running stable gambling companies.

Jaime Debono, iGaming Academy Managing Director, stated: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Raffles Training, bringing a comprehensive new suite of training courses to the thriving South East Asian market. Together with Raffles Training, we’re excited to provide new career progression opportunities for professionals in the sector, as well as supporting skills growth for the Philippines-based operators as they expand.”

The iGaming Academy is a subsidiary of The Conexus Group and currently trains over 30,000 professionals per year across a mix of eLearning (online training), virtual classroom courses, masterclasses, and events through 100 + companies in 45 + countries.

Gary Lee Seaton, Raffles Training director, said: “With the iGaming Academy collaboration, we’re happy to be pioneers in South East Asia to not only train the iGaming workforce, but also to open the eyes of the public to the vast career opportunities in this industry. We have never had the opportunity to formally learn about iGaming in this part of the world. Especially now, in a pandemic, where conventional jobs are at threat, it’s a great time for people to upskill or reskill.”
