With lockdown restrictions easing we hand over to KnowNow MD Paula to look at the Gambling Commission guidelines introduced throughout and our Compliance and Player Protection training to help navigate your business through them.
Here we are coming into the summer months and slowly starting to emerge from lockdown. Bookies in England are opening their doors, casinos and bingo halls are preparing to do the same. What an absolute rollercoaster ride the last few months have been on so many levels.
KnowNow have partnered with RightWay Compliance and Seventh Wave Training to bring you this interactive online training course.
This training started on the 30th June. But you can still join the course. Sign up today and we’ll send you all the previous session videos and hand outs which you can view before joining the live twice weekly sessions.
There has been a fair few changes and considerations during the International pandemic that mean those working in Compliance and Player Protection might need to bring in new ways of working and be aware of different regulatory guidelines.
This five week online training course is specifically designed to give you all of the knowledge and information you need to implement and maintain best practice in the new normal and beyond.

With recent global events The Cheltenham Festival really does seem like a distant memory. I’m going to be honest here. The festival is one of the highlights of my year. However this year felt strange. Looking back it feels like the last week of normality for me. As I avidly tuned in daily I knew that we were heading for a global crisis. However by watching the racing daily everything seemed normal.
What a crazy time we all find ourselves in. This unprecedented international crisis that leaves many of us on lockdown in our homes has certainly taken its toll on our industry and our businesses.
