Mentor Education, a privately-owned finance, business and accounting education provider, has become the first registered training organisation in Australia to offer a course in blockchain.
The 10747NAT Advanced Diploma of Applied Blockchain consists of six core units and two elective units with an option to study a further two elective units.
It covers topics such as analysing performance of a business model deployed on blockchain, to preparing an organisation for transitioning operations to a blockchain network.
"Blockchain technology is seen for its ability to drive automation, and present transparency, security and validity,” Mentor's Dr Mark Sinclair said.
“The new course has been developed to ensure that this emerging industry has enterprise ready graduates with the knowledge and experience to apply blockchain frameworks in existing and new businesses.
“We are passionate about offering emerging technology education to our students and are pleased to be the first delivery partner of Blockchain Collective.”
Blockchain Collectives Co-founder Austin Lewinsith said Mentor's 15-year track record, exceptional compliance standards, integrity and customer focus align with Blockchain Collective's values of delivering high-quality training.

"The Mentor team have demonstrated their commitment to work with Blockchain Collective to deliver to an industry-leading qualification which complements their successful course offerings in finance, accounting, business and planning,” Lewinsith said.
“We believe Mentor will be a key player in training future leaders of the blockchain sector."
Mentor specialises in the provision of training to organisations through face-to-face, distance education and interactive e-learning systems.
Blockchain and distributed ledger technologies are being adapted into new and legacy businesses in most industries.
