Blockchain Collective to empower filipino the importance of blockchain.

  Blockchain and distributed ledger technologies (DTL) are being adapted into new and legacy businesses in most industries. Recognized for its ability to drive productivity, these emerging technologies address duplication, record keeping and international payment inefficiencies in today's financial sector as well as providing better automation, traceability and transparency.

  A immense growth in interest of the applications of blockchain and DTL in the recent years as future-thinking enterprise and governments had already started taking advantage of blockchain technology. However, industry research shows a lack of skilled people in this field.

  Blockchain Collective, The Australia’s first and only Government Accredited Advanced Diploma of Applied Blockchain, is a leading blockchain education body empowering enterprise, educators and students for a future in blockchain and distributed ledger technologies. Servicing the growing demand for qualified and skilled people in the application of blockchain worldwide, its education is designed to equip graduates with the knowledge and experience to apply blockchain frameworks into business.

  “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,” said Lewinsmith.

  According to Dr. Jackqui Moreno, Vice Dean-Accountancy & Business of the College of Arts and Sciences, San Beda University, the accountancy profession has evolved so much for the past years. And since the Board of Accountancy already included it in the course outline of the CPA Licensure Examinations that it becomes more prominent to the academe to bring to the students what the industries really demand from the graduates.

"We like to make sure that the students understand in the accountant’s perspective what blockchain is all about, because if you are not transparent about the transaction then many people will be losing trust in the transaction processing. Also understanding this will really will help students become future professionals who really understand how technology affects corporate governance, and how it will also be affecting the business community."
  “We are passionate about offering emerging technology education to our students and are pleased to be the first delivery partner of Blockchain Collective in the Philippines,” said Dr. Moreno.
  That's why last May 2-3, the first-ever Blockchain Accounting Workshop by the Blockchain Collective was held at the San Beda University in Manila. The said seminar was designed to prepare 200 Accounting and Finance students with a sound foundation of blockchain knowledge to confidently sit the CPA exam. The Training combines a theory, practical and a demonstrative approach. The two-day intensive workshop delivered practical and relevant skills,  knowledge and examples of Blockchain’s uses, benefits and limitations as it relates to accounting and the financial sector. It guided the students through the process of understanding Blockchain’s history, evolution, terminologies, current place in the market and its potential to disrupt many industry sectors. Seminar attendees were also given the opportunity to navigate a blockchain explorer. Aside from the San Beda University, some of the well-known universities are likely to follow and considering to add the Blockchain on their curriculum.

  Included for the seminar are lifetime access to Learning Management System and resources (via online portal), seminar kits, online examination and Certificate of Attendance that is recognized globally. In conclusion, Joseph Chua, President of Blockchain Collective-Philippines, said that the company aims to solidify the Philippines as the leading hub for talented and
employable graduates in Blockchain.

  Currently, Blockchain Collective courses offered.
  • 1 Day Workshop
  • 5 Day Workshop
  • 10747NAT Advance diploma of applied Blockchain.
  In the Philippines, we don't have certified blockchain professionals yet! hopefully with the help of Blockchain Collective a lot of filipino professionals or students can adopt this technology.
