Tafe Queensland Launches Applied Blockchain Course

Tafe Queensland’s first degree Applied Blockchain course is now available to Queensland students for just $145.

Funded by JobTrainer, the program was made available after Blockchain Week.

During the event, he pointed out that companies are facing challenges finding talent in blockchain technology and noted that the skills shortage is a growing challenge.

Tafe Queensland says the new course will be an important step in bridging this skills gap to make teaching emerging technologies more accessible to Queensland residents.

The course announcement is also aligned with the Tech Council of Australia’s goal of growing the tech workforce to 1.2 million by 2030.

Tafe Queensland claims the course removes the barrier of entry to Blockchain education, allowing more individuals to upskill and retrain to position themselves at the forefront of the Blockchain industry.

“Like the DSO initiatives, Tafe Queensland is using industry demand to pilot and promote the courses employers desperately need. The skills gap in technology and non-technology roles is widening. Leveraging industry input is essential for Australia to produce the additional 286,000 tech workers needed by 2025, comments Patrick Kidd, CEO of the Digital Skills Organization.

“We know that 42% of people in the tech industry don’t have a college degree. This is a huge incentive for those looking to upgrade their skills and pursue opportunities in high-paying industries like Blockchain,” Kidd continues.

“The technology is being adopted at an increasingly rapid rate and is gaining global recognition. This announcement is a very exciting step for the future of technology in Australia,” said Blockchain Collective founder Austin Lewinsmith.

“Anyone who wants to understand how the technology works and is looking to improve their skills or wants to implement blockchain in their business should sign up,” adds Lewinsmith.

As the undeniable benefits of blockchain become more apparent, the technology is being applied across all industry verticals. New market segments such as NFTs, Decentralized Finance and many others are attracting a lot of attention and paving the way for the mainstreaming of Web 3.0 and Web 4.0.

Leading companies recognize that to keep pace with the changing technology landscape, they must upskill and reskill their current workforce, while creating and supporting the growth of talent pools for future endeavors.

“We expect this industry to explode with career opportunities alongside business applications across all industries and believe it or not, unknowingly most of us are already using or enjoying the benefits of blockchain technology,” concludes Lewinsmith.
