The future is moving towards a skills-based economy and blockchain qualifications are in hot demand as the awareness of blockchain technology increases. Blockchain is the technology that will likely underpin tomorrow’s digital economy, providing the ability to build safe, fast and decentralised infrastructure for autonomous collaboration with other technologies such as IoT and AI.  

Key benefits of blockchain technology include:

  • Lower transaction costs: Peer to peer transactions (decentralised systems) eliminate the need for intermediaries (i.e., financial institutions) to regulate transactions and activity.
  • Faster Settlement: Blockchain transactions are incredibly fast because they are automated and don’t need to transact through an intermediary or require approval.
  • Protecting IP: Data on the blockchain is immutable, guaranteeing proof of data ownership and protecting intellectual property.
  • Trustworthy data: Since data is protected from interference, and its source and authenticity can be guaranteed, a business will increasingly prioritise this data.
  • Enhanced Security: Blockchain is considered more secure and trustworthy than traditional systems. Unlike traditional centralised systems (i.e., a bank), there is no single point of failure as the information is recorded across thousands of network nodes, making it nearly impossible to corrupt. 
  • Consensus protocols: Enable self-governing work within the network to be conducted and eliminate the requirement for permissions to be sought in a system.


The purpose of this course is to provide participants with a range of knowledge, skills, and generic and specific competencies to support them in gaining employment in applying blockchain technologies within an existing or new organisation. This course will equip you with the knowledge and experience required to apply blockchain frameworks to new and legacy business frameworks.

This course is intended to provide participants with the following vocational outcomes:

  • Management or operational roles within an organisation implementing new business models that incorporate blockchain technologies to create value, efficiencies and new opportunities
  • Management or operational roles within an organisation implementing disruptive business systems that enable the application of blockchain technologies
  • Management or operational roles within an organisation charged with developing and overseeing blockchain teams.
