The first accredited course for blockchain, the Advanced Diploma of Applied Blockchain, has been developed by Mentor Education in partnership with Queensland’s Blockchain Collective.
The Diploma course would consist of eight modules, including six core modules and two electives, and cover topics across analysing the performance of business models deployed on blockchain and preparing an organisation for transitioning operations to a blockchain network.
The course would also traverse the recruitment of staff for a blockchain project and the regulatory environment.
Students would be required to create a business model, functional requirements and specifications and an implementation plan for an innovative new concept or as a process improvement initiative for an existing enterprise.
Mentor’s founder and principal, Mark Sinclair, said blockchain and distributed ledger technologies were being adapted into new and established businesses in most industries, and to know blockchain would be to have a hotly pursued skill in the freelance job market.
“The Advanced Diploma of Applied Blockchain has been developed to ensure that this emerging industry has enterprise ready graduates with the knowledge and experience to apply blockchain frameworks in existing and new businesses,” he said.
“We are passionate about offering emerging technology education to our students and are pleased to be the first RTO [registered training organisation] to deliver the course”.
