Blockchain Collective says there has been immense growth in interest of the applications of blockchain and distributed ledger technologies, and industry research shows a lack of skilled people in this field.
The company notes that blockchain technology has been recognised for its ability to drive productivity, and offer transparency, security and validity, and says the new course is designed to equip graduates with the knowledge and experience to apply blockchain frameworks in existing and new businesses.
According to the company, future-thinking enterprise and governments are already taking advantage of blockchain technology and, the NSW Government, in line with the 2030 – Prosperity through Innovation initiative, is moving citizen identification to the blockchain, offering an immutable, transparent and decentralised solution to the current system.
"This is just the tip of the iceberg with regard to implementing blockchain and distributed ledger technologies. I feel the timing is comparable to the World Wide Web in the early 1990s and today, 55% of the worlds population have Internet access and use it on a daily basis. Just imagine where we will be in the next 10-20 years, now there is an accredited course."
Blockchain Collective says the Advanced Diploma of Applied Blockchain (10747NAT) consists of eight modules: six core and two electives.
“It's complexity covers topics such as analysing performance of a business model deployed on blockchain, to preparing an organisation for transitioning operations to a blockchain network. The course will be delivered through registered training organisations, online, blended learning and intensive learning retreats,” the company says.
