We're accredited by ACCET (the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training). That means that by law Crescent is required to maintain a high placement level for the bartenders and casino dealers who graduate and are certified at all of our five locations across the United States. And, we do. We take pride in helping Crescent students find the perfect fit upon graduation. Crescent has served thousands of students since we opened in 1983. Due to our long-term, strong connections in the industry, Crescent students often get hired or get auditions even before certification.
In 2016, Nevada, of course, was number one in gaming revenue (commercial and tribal) in the United States, followed by #2 Pennsylvania, #3 Louisiana, #4 New Jersey, amd #5 Mississippi. Indiana, New York, Illinois, Missouri, and Ohio round out the top ten. These are also strong markets for bartending jobs.
