The blockchain is interesting for more and more organizations that integrate it into their strategies. With the exponential growth of digital assets, this new technology offers new development prospects. Find out how to understand its challenges thanks to the École Polytechnique Executive Education, which offers the first certification training, the Blockchain Starter Program.
Media attention and the rapid growth of cryptocurrencies have brought the blockchain to the forefront. Faced with the growing interest in this sector, the École Polytechnique Executive Education has developed a training program that allows anyone to discover blockchain technology and its applications: the Blockchain Starter Program. The heads of this course, Daniel Augot and Julien Prat, both professors-researchers at École Polytechnique, are also co-directors of the Chair of Blockchain & B2B Platforms at École Polytechnique.
This program is not only intended for a wide audience (e.g. industry leaders, consultants, representatives of the IT, finance or innovation professions), but also allows to acquire both the knowledge and skills necessary to implement new functions around the blockchain . Participants will discuss the legal, economic and technological issues of the blockchain. This is an opportunity to assess the potential of this new technology in a professional context.
For example, based on the use case of the very first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, students will understand the added value and contributions of the blockchain in its operation.
X’s Blockchain Starter Program, the first certified distance learning course
The Blockchain Starter Program Training Validates Skill Block No. 3″Specialized communication for knowledge transfer(RNCP34126BC03) and is eligible for professional training funding programs, including the Personal Training Account, or CPF.
This program is compatible with a professional activity and takes place completely remotely. Each week a theme is discussed with videos to watch and exercises to do. Everyone progresses at their own pace. At the end of the week, all participants meet during a synchronous session with the speaker who designed the training material. This moment is rich in interactions and essential to anchor the knowledge that has been worked on all week.
Here are some examples of the topics covered in this program:
- The concepts of cryptography
- What is Blockchain Consensus?
- The Proof-of-Stake of the Ethereum Blockchain
- The principle of decentralization
So many technical terms that sometimes give a complicated and inaccessible picture of the blockchain profession. So it is an opportunity to learn and take your first steps in this new ecosystem that is constantly evolving. Blockchain can and should revolutionize many traditional industries. Be it logistical questions, traceability or directly by giving power back to users through decentralization.
The next school year will take place on Monday, April 3, 2023!
