The Institute of Licensing and Gambling Commission have jointly worked together to produce a series of e-learning modules on gaming machines.

The modules are designed to help Licensing Authorities (LAs) and other co-regulators to improve their understanding of gaming machines and how they are regulated.

Module 1 covers:

  • The role of LAs in the regulation of gambling
  • What is a gaming machine; and
  • The various types of gaming machines

Module 2 covers:

  • The physical components of a gaming machine
  • How gaming machines work
  • The signage displayed on gaming machines

Module 3 covers:

  • Compliant machines in inappropriate places (Illegal siting)
  • Examples of types of non-compliant machines
  • How to take regulatory action

The intention is to continue our work to provide further modules concerning other areas of gambling.

Please note, that the gaming machine sector is a diverse and complex one and this training is only designed to give a basic introduction, for help with complex issues, seek specialist advice from your Gambling Commission Compliance Manager.

CPD and Certification

The IoL accredits the modules with 0.5 hours CPD each (please note, this is based on the suggested amount of time it should take a person to complete the module). Please ensure you view each page of the modules and scroll to the bottom of each before taking the online test – otherwise the test completion will not record, and your certificate will not be generated.

The E-learning modules are available to everyone. To access the modules, you will need to log in to the IoL website.
