The Blockchain Academy is now offering instructor-led blockchain training to businesses, government and universities worldwide. Training is available in classrooms, online, or on-site. Courses for varying levels of knowledge include hands-on labs and instruction guided by a blockchain expert. In June 2019 the Academy is launching the 10,000 Blockchain Developers Initiative that will train 10,000 developers over the next 36 months.
Cutting Edge Coursework
The coursework will focus on Hyperledger Fabric, Hyperledger Sawtooth, R3 Corda and Block.One’s EOS blockchains. These courses are designed for experienced developers. Oracle Blockchain Cloud Service has joined the Initiative to ensure developers are working on the latest platforms. In addition, the program goals focuses learners towards creating blockchain solutions for the world.
The 10,000 Blockchain Developers Initiative: A Comprehensive Program
The 10,000 Blockchain Developers Initiative boasts the most comprehensive blockchain program in the world at 260 hours. It breaks participants into cohorts of 250 for each 10-week online instructor led training program. For successful completion, the program requires 100 hours of instructor training, 30 hours of labs, and 130 hours of homework and project-based learning. The instructor teaching component is on Saturdays and Sundays. Labs will occur once a week in the evening.
Blockchain is Cutting Edge
Bryant Nielson, Founder of The Blockchain Academy notes that:
“Blockchain is hot. And the technology its capabilities are only going to expand. That means that an already inadequate talent pool becomes even larger as already experienced developers require additional skills.”
Nielson is one of only a few trainers with approval for teaching learners that are working towards their Government Blockchain Association Specialist certification. He added the following:
“We launched the 10,000 Blockchain Developers Initiative to bridge that gap on a faster pace to support the businesses that need help and to develop a skill set in individuals who want to take their coding ability to the next level.”
Both corporations and individuals located in North America, all of whom must employ be experienced developers, are able to participate. Corporations, from startups to Fortune 500 entering the blockchain space, will be able to directly enroll their existing in-house developers in this part-time program; while the public will be able to enroll through The Blockchain Academy University partners network. This 10 week program is intensive but not disruptive to a participant developers’ current work obligations.
