Okanagan seeking “the right blend” for tech careers with new blockchain certificate

February 10, 2019

Okanagan College will offer a new certificate in blockchain technologies through its Continuing Studies program. A release from the college states that the program will emphasize how blockchain can potentially improve peoples’ quality of life, as it has a variety of potential applications in banking insurance, charity, voting and other government systems, health care and real estate, and other areas. “It’s knowledge that will benefit small business owners too, who are increasingly needing to serve as their own IT department and look after their own security and e-commerce solutions,” said Dennis Silvestrone, Director of Continuing Studies and Corporate Training at Okanagan College. Okanagan (BC)
