Overview

On this accelerated BCS EXIN Foundation Certificate in Blockchain course, you’ll build knowledge of the basic concepts surrounding blockchain and its potential fields of application, as well as its value for an organisation and the technology driving blockchain.

In just 2 days, you’ll learn the constructs of a blockchain, its role within a supply chain and how to differentiate between blockchain networks, in the public, private and hybrid field. You’ll also understand how to:

  • Identify the role of a node in a network
  • Explain how cryptography, private and public keys, and hashes are used in a blockchain
  • Explain the use of blockchain technology for the protection of intellectual property rights (IP) and providence

At the end of this course, you’ll sit the BCS EXIN Foundation Certificate in Blockchain exam, and achieve your certification. As an Official BCS Partner, and through Firebrand’s Lecture | Lab | Review methodology, you’ll get access to official courseware, learn from certified instructors, and train at twice the speed of traditional training in a distraction-free environment.

Audience

This course is ideal for those who would like to understand blockchain and its wider application in their own organisation, including professionals in both business and IT who have, or aim to have, a professional role in Blockchain as a cryptographic and smart contract solution.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online courses
  2. You'll be certified in just 2 days. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  3. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor

S.M., The WOS Group. (19/10/2020 (Monday) to 24/10/2020 (Saturday))

"I had planned on attending the CISMP at the Firebrand training facility but due to the current restrictions the course was changed to online. I was apprehensive on how this would pan out and pleased to say I was pleasantly surprised. The course was very well structured and the instructor very knowledgeable and engaging. The only downside is that I have to wait to sit the exam but feel confident that I will be successful. Well done Firebrand in such challenging times!"
