The course will last for three days and it will run from September 21st until September 23rd of 2010 at St. John-s Mill, Tynwald Mills. The course aims to raise awarenedd and understanding of the e-Gaming sector and it will consist of four modules which will comprehend the e-Gaming industry, employment opportunities and what employers are looking for in candidates. The cost of participation will be split between the participant and the Department for Economic Development.
