Blockchain Workshops

blockchain, technology

At UCW, we believe in a future where technology and business are seamlessly integrated. This vision is supported by experts in the field and our meticulously developed online workshops teach participants about the basics of Blockchain technology and build on that learning in subsequent sessions.

Each full workshop is two hours in length (the free introductory workshop is 60 minutes) and participants will get a Certificate of Completion from UCW for each full workshop completed. All workshops will be available online to participants for 48 hours after the live event.

The workshops can be taken individually or as a pathway to a Certificate of Achievement for completing all five workshops through the Canadian College of Technology and Business (CCTB)

At the end of the workshops, attendees should leave with the knowledge and vocabulary needed to handle blockchain and cryptocurrency in professional situations. They will also acquire the tools necessary to develop their organization’s blockchain and/or cryptocurrency strategy and successfully promote it. For the management of the firm, having staff with such knowledge and expertise increases the probability of creative situations where opportunities can be extended to clients.

With its secure distributed ledger technology, Blockchain continues to disrupt industries beyond digital currencies. According to an article by IEEE Innovation, recent developments in fields, such as Supply Chain, Healthcare, and the Internet of Things (IoT) proves the extent of Blockchain’s impact in today’s industries.

The impact of blockchain technology is being felt across a wide range of industries and areas, ranging from banking and healthcare to entertainment and supply chain management. Cryptocurrencies have established themselves as a new form of digital money, presenting new opportunities and threats to the global economy. It is a disruptive technology that is rapidly generating new opportunities for employment.
