iGaming Academy announces new programme with Lagos State Lotteries Board
iGaming Academy has recently announced the launch of its exclusive cooperation project with the Lagos State Lotteries Board (LSLB).
This collaboration’s goal is to provide improved industry education for different West African countries, including Nigeria, as it tries to set a higher standard than ever before. The training and courses have all been tailored for all those working for the gaming industry in West Africa, and will be providing education on subjects including responsible gaming and money laundering combat.
The academy, which excels in online training, has developed the course to specifically fit the West African market and the necessary demands of companies in the region. The programme is compliant with all the new rules and regulations as they keep changing.
The LSLB online portal has provided access to COVID-19 related training courses to over 480 employees across 27 different companies in the area. This specific COVID-19 related course, which was offered by iGaming Academy and LSLB, was carefully designed to teach staff how to work in their designated workspaces in a safe manner. It aimed to give operators in the region the chance to further educate their employees during the pandemic.
The online training for anti-money laundering and responsible gaming will be compulsory as it debuts within the next few weeks. All employees can access the training through the LSLB online training portal with their own personal accounts. And once the training is over, they will be awarded certificates that they can download.
On a yearly basis, the Conexus Group subsidiary provides training to more than 30,000 professional staff belonging to over 100 companies and firms across 45+ countries worldwide. iGaming Academy has vast knowledge and experience in training employees in the online gambling, betting and casino sectors within all levels.
The academy’s partnership with LSLB sets the tone for the industry in the West African region, making sure that the area’s gaming companies will have easy access to premium regulated training courses and programmes all year, every year. Their training is accessible online, which makes things much easier for companies since they will be able to develop a personalised online learning portal accessible in all areas.
Jaime Debono, iGaming Academy’s managing director, stated:
This exclusive collaboration offers operators in West Africa a guaranteed route to conformity with the relevant jurisdictions’ regulations. 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.
Lagos State Lotteries Board Chief executive officer Bashir Are voiced his opinion by saying:
This is a landmark achievement for the Board as a pacesetter in the African gaming industry. We have forged this collaboration in order to bring our operators to be at par with international gaming best practices, with keen focus on continued capacity building for the African gaming workforce. We are very much excited with our collaboration, with iGaming Academy being a top player in education and training in the gaming industry, we look forward to great achievements together.
