MLG Blockchain, a global blockchain development and consulting company, has recently announced the launch of its Blockchain Certification Program. The certification program will be available to any person or institution in the world and will be organised as a 2-day intensive bootcamp.

Blockchain Certification – a Joint Effort with Bitmaker

MLG Blockchain has partnered with Bitmaker, the leading tech skill accelerator in Canada, to prepare the training materials and the exam. The course is aimed mainly at students and professionals who want to acquire in-depth knowledge about cryptocurrency, real-life applications of blockchain technology, investments and market regulations.

The bootcamp will take place during the 15th and 16th of September at Bitmaker’s teaching headquarters – Bitmaker General Assembly – located in Toronto, Canada. The teaching staff will consist of top executives from MLG Blockchain. Most of the courses will be taught by Michael Gord, the CEO of the company.

“Technology advancements like blockchain and cryptocurrency are redefining job roles and driving the need for new skill sets. Our Certificate program will support students and professionals adopting these technologies and using them as tools for improving and re-inventing business processes,” explained Gord.

A Comprehensive Curriculum

The Blockchain Certification Program will consist of 12 parts, covering all the essential elements that will give trainees detailed information on blockchain and cryptocurrency:

  • Blockchain Basics
  • History of Money and Ledger-based Economics
  • Bitcoin
  • Ethereum
  • Hyperledger
  • Basic Cryptography
  • Mining
  • Wallets & Clients
  • Exchanges
  • Initial Coin Offerings
  • Regulation
  • Blockchain in the Real World

The course is designed not only to offer information, but also to put it into context. Given the increasing presence of cryptocurrency in financial news and as a subject of debate for regulatory bodies, such as the US Securities Exchange Commission, this approach will prepare a generation of savvy investors, financial analysts, brokers and other finance and banking professionals.

At the end of the bootcamp, the trainees will take an examination and those who pass it will receive the MLG Certified status.

The price for a ticket to attend the Blockchain Certification Program is $161.27 and can be purchased on the Eventbrite platform.
