The 2-day intensive Blockchain and Cryptocurrency bootcamp leads to the CIO Certified Blockchain Professional (CCBP) designation upon completion of the workshop, an exam and a capstone project we teach and guide you through.

This program is offered in partnership with and is recognized by the CIO ASSOCIATION OF CANADA and THE INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT CONSULTANTS (CMC Ontario) as accredited for Blockchain training and certification.

BLOCKCHAIN is the "NEXT INTERNET" and it is highly disruptive. This provides an excellent opportunity for you to learn to enhance your career or to start your own blockchain based startup. Blockchain startups are attracting 10's of millions of dollars in funding. Businesses will require skilled blockchain professionals. Get ahead with this 2-day bootcamp and learn about the technology and business of blockchain. No technical experience is required.

CRYPTOCURRENCIES are the digital currencies and tokens that fuel Blockchain and have seen a market valuation go from $20B to $100B in a matter of weeks, with some cryptocurrencies and tokens gaining 100x to 1000x in weeks. Understand the basics of cryptocurrencies and how they work so you know how to research what you need to know and to protect yourself.

You can then augment this training with deeper-dive courses on smart contract development and cryptocurrencies.
