Poly to offer IR-specific courses

"NGEE ANN Polytechnic has revamped some of its courses to prepare students for jobs at integrated resorts (IRs)." - Today 28 Apr 2005

Looks like everything is all set with the casinos that even Polytechnics are gearing up to offer courses catered to the Integrated Resorts.

I can see it now, the modules that they will be offering.

Mahjong 101: Introduction To Mahjong (Taiwanese, Hong Kong & Singapore Rules)
Mahjong 102: The Fundamentals Of Counting The Tais (Doubles)
Mahjong 103: Basics Of The Game (From Dice Throwing, Chiak, Pong, Gong to Gao)
Mahjong 104: The Strategy Of When To And When Not To Ump Kong
Mahjong 105: Flowers & Animals: Good Or Bad?
Mahjong 106: How To Do Da San Yuan (大三元), Da Si Xi (大四喜), Chap Sar Yew (十三幺).
Mahjong 107: The Perils Of Da Xiang Gong (大相公), Xiao Xiang Gong (小相公), Zha Hu (诈胡), Dio Pao (Hokkien: 中包).
Mahjong 108: Practical Project: Mahjong Tournament.

Anyway, I can imagine when these students graduate and start working at the casinos. Imagine their name cards to be like this:

NTUC Casino Limited

Tan Wee Seng
 (Dip. Bacarrat)
Senior Croupier

Sentosa Cove PO Box 112
Singapre 933112
Tel: 65-65551233
Fax: 65-65551234

p.s. I know that logo above was spoofed from Singapore Poly while the article refers to Ngee Ann. Bor pian leh... cannot find a big enough logo for NP leh... unless somebody can supply, I think I will leave it like that for now.
