Online Mini-Module: Introduction to Blockchain Technologies
Brief Description
Blockchain technologies have revolutionised the Internet and have shown to be valuable in many sectors: the financial sector, insurance, supply chain, cryptocurrencies, and many more. Skills related to blockchain technologies range from business and systems analysis and blockchain financial expertise to the development of these technologies.

This mini-module will be useful to a range of delegates because many organisations are moving towards using blockchain technology to minimise administrative overheads of traditional methods to validate transactions, to create new ways for customers to make payments without a bank or a person involved, among many other benefits. Furthermore, blockchain technologies are enabling the creation of new industries due to the possibilities of doing digital peer-to-peer (P2P) payments without the need for a third party. And this is only the beginning.
A mini-module will take approximately 1–2 hours of online learning, but you can complete the module at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home.

Delegates will receive a digital completion record upon completion of the course.
