Understand what blockchain is, and its practical & strategic uses in this five-week micro-credential for supply chain professionals, requiring no technical programming expertise.
This course has been developed in collaboration with the Canadian Blockchain Supply Chain Association (CBSCA) to give supply chain professionals a foundational understanding of how blockchain works and how different industries use blockchain. Without requiring any previous technical or expertise around blockchain or distributed ledger technology, the course explains blockchain, its definition, strategic uses, businesses cases, and more. The course explains distinct concepts like decentralization, peer-to-peer networking, smart contract automation, etc. It acts as a one-stop blockchain briefing and provides additional resources for future reference. The course also has a capstone case study, including the option to develop a case from the learner’s own organization to get facilitator review - allowing the learning to potentially deliver a proposal or formal recommendations to their company.
Upon completion of the course, learners will be granted the Using Blockchain in Supply Chain micro-credential from CITT & CBSCA.
Please note this course is offered in English, September 12 to October 14, 2022.
