Due to the COVID-19 situation, the course is a blended mode of face-to-face and online participation. Students appear in face-to-face tuition of a minimum of 15 hours within an institution-based environment and online learning of 5 hours per week from the Institute, home or other locations.
Blockchain is an emerging technology, and learners will likely either be working in a real “Start-Up” or forming a “Start-Up” organization or project. In both cases, many activities will be in the planning phase as opposed to being operational. Where this is the case, work environments must be ‘simulated’ for assessment. Each unit of competency involves assessment tasks conducted in a range of contexts, for example:
Please note that course fees may change during a student’s enrolment. At least 30 days’ notice will be provided to all students when course fees have changed.
