SMP Compliance Academy (SMPCA) has further strengthened its position in the igaming sector through a training partnership with Totally Gaming Academy (TGA), to power eLearning and compliance training for the gaming sector.
The aim of this partnership is to combine the knowledge and experience of TGA’s offering with the SMPCA’s growing presence in eLearning solutions to deliver blended learning.
This partnership follows on from a long selection process for TGA beginning in March 2018 with the focus on finding a partner to provide the broader focus and technology to take the face-to-face knowledge of TGA facilitators and deliver it to the wider market.
Andrew Spencer, head of education and training at TGA, said: ‘We are delighted to announce our partnership at ICE London this year with SMP eGaming. Their compliance e-learning platform provides the perfect complement to our face-to-face courses in fundamental topics including Responsible Gaming and Anti-Money Laundering. We look forward to providing a complete service to our clients as part of the wider launch of our extensive 2019 Totally Gaming Academy portfolio at ICE London."
Luke Doherty, SMPCA’s eLearning specialist, said: ‘At SMPCA, we pride ourselves on creating highly engaging CPD accredited eLearning solutions and we very much look forward to working in partnership with TGA in delivering a blended learning approach to their already globally established face-to-face offering.’
Jade Zorab, head of corporate development at SMP, said: ‘The value of this partnership cannot be overstated. The Totally Gaming Academy is widely recognised as the global leader of face-to-face gaming industry training and SMP is delighted to have been selected as their partner to facilitate entry into the eLearning arena.’
‘We couldn’t be prouder that our platform and regulatory compliance training has received further endorsement from this training industry specialist, who recognises the quality of our product and content. We are thrilled to see TGA take to market their blended learning approach and there are great synergies in our brands, so we have a very prosperous and successful future ahead of us.’
Working in partnership with TGA, Luke Doherty and Ted Pepper, director of egaming at SMP, delivered a presentation at ICE London 2019 to discuss the subject of Blended Learning and how such solutions can help boost employee performance.
