he IPLYC, interested in strengthening their technical knowledge and expanding their professional toolkit, reached out to GLI’s world-renowned educational program, GLI University, for training and invited regulators from other Argentinean jurisdictions to attend, including the Provinces of Santa Fe, Mendoza, Cordoba, National Lottery, Institute of Games City of Buenos Aires and the Federal Administration of Public Revenue (AFIP).
The three-day event took place in the cities of Pilar and Tigre.
The customized training included a theoretical introduction based on GLI’s Slots 101 module and on-site inspection training on system verification, communication testing, machine and game verification and progressive verification
“We are very satisfied with the training. GLI developed a curriculum tailored to our needs. We want to strengthen our relationship with GLI and plan for at least three trainings per year, especially for the inspectors that work within the regulatory entities. Also, we will continue to invite regulators from other jurisdictions to participate in the training,” IPLYC Director of Systems, the Province of Buenos Aires regulatory entity, Marcelo Mehl said.
“GLI was honored by the IPLYC Buenos Aires’s trust in our services and for allowing us to work with them in customizing the GLI University program to their very specific and immediate needs. This training is the initiation of a long-term relationship that will allow us to cooperate on their technical development to strengthen their supervision and control processes," GLI’s Director, Latin America and Caribbean Government Relations and Business Development Karen Marcela Sierra-Hughes said.
“IPLYC Buenos Aires has been leader in utilizing technology to monitor their gaming industry,” she said.
“This training is adding to their technical capabilities by investing in the professionalization of its human resources so technology is complemented by the supervision on-site that the inspections and systems department will perform to guarantee the integrity of the games operation. We are thankful to IPLYC Buenos Aires for facilitating what was needed to perform the training and for sharing the training with the regulators of Santa Fe, Mendoza, Cordoba, National Lottery, Institute of Games City of Buenos Aires and AFIP. The opportunity of sharing experiences among regulators had an added value to the training that will benefit the efforts across the jurisdictions in attendance. We look forward to our next collaboration with IPLYC.”
