Gambling Awareness CPD Certification

Accredited CPD training in gambling awareness for your organisation.

Gambling Awareness CPD Accreditation ​

Our CPD certification in gambling awareness can provide valuable knowledge and skills for organisations dealing with the issue of problem gambling in the workplace.

This training aims to raise awareness about the harmful effects of gambling and equip individuals with the tools to address this growing problem.

By obtaining a CPD certification in gambling awareness, organisations can demonstrate their commitment to promoting a safe and healthy work environment.

Why do a CPD certification in gambling awareness?

Gambling in the workplace is a growing problem.

According to Public Health England, problem gambling costs the UK economy an estimated 1.27 billion a year, and is linked to:

  • Poor concentration on work
  • Poor work performance
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Absenteeism
  • Repeated lateness
  • Negative impacts on employers and work colleagues

Additional impacts on workplaces can include mental health issues, misuse of company property, reduced health and wellbeing, and peer to peer relationship breakdowns.

Public Health England also estimate that 15% of online gamblers are gambling in the workplace, leading to a direct loss of productivity.

Gambling in the workplace is on the increase, and there’s a pressing need for more education on gambling related harms, and how those harms have an impact on employees and employers.

Problem gambling not only harms individuals and families, but also has a significant impact on employers, businesses, and other work organisations.

About the Project

Amey is large, respected organisation working in the construction industry. They approached Red Card Gambling to deliver their CPD accredited Gambling Awareness workshop to a group of their employees, and staff.

What we did

Tony, Ben and Sandra, facilitated the CPD accredited Gambling Awareness training to a group of Amey at their offices in Runcorn. The session was 3 hours in total and covered all aspects of problem gambling and gaming.

What the client said

“Tony and his team hosted a seminar and their CPD gambling awareness training course on the Amey SRM A533 Bridge Replacement, to the project team.

The seminar was enlightening, highly educational and informative, making us far more aware of the web of gambling options in the arena. It helped us to understand the environment better providing us with tools as to how to identify, provide help and guidance to friends, family, colleagues and mates.

I promoted Red Cards time with us as a measure of wellbeing but also recognising the difficult environment post Covid 19 we are now enduring.

I would recommend this session to everyone. It has highlighted to me, that you never really know what someone is carrying. Education of the problem will help us all to tackle it collectively.”
