TECHNOLOGY: EIMF-BTA in exclusive Cyprus blockchain training deal

19 March, 2019

The European Institute of Management and Finance (EIMF), a leading provider of professional education primarily to the financial and professional services sector, is partnering up with the Blockchain Training Alliance (BTA), to provide   blockchain education and certification in Cyprus.


 

 

“Τhe demand for blockchain knowledge is enormous,” said Marios Siathas, General Manager of EIMF, adding that this partnership “will ensure that our clients attain exceptional knowledge transfer together with a reputable certification at the end of their training.”

Siathas explained that blockchain is no longer seen as being related to cryptocurrencies alone, but, as the need grows for businesses across a wide variety of industries to integrate blockchain-focused solutions, it is now in the spotlight with an eminent role to play.

“Sooner or later, most companies will adopt blockchain technology, resulting in a shortage of trained and certified developers.  The gap between the demand and supply of talented, knowledgeable staff is currently placing blockchain developers amongst the highest paid individuals of any professional field.”

Announcing their choice as the Cyprus training and certification partner, Blockchain Training Alliance CEO Chad Decker said that “partnering with EIMF means that students learning from our Blockchain content will receive the highest quality education experience. We are honoured to be partnering with them and excited to bring Blockchain education to Cyprus.”

According to an announcement, the BTA-EIMF partnership will offer the required training in five subjects for certification in Blockchain Business Foundations for managers, Hyperledger Training for developers and administrators, Ethereum Training for programmers and developers, Blockchain Security Training and Blockchain Architecture Training. 

The Cabinet appointed a joint working group last summer to develop blockchain technology in Cyprus and place the island on the world map for digital currencies.

The blockchain sector already sees Cyprus among leaders in the development of cryptocurrency and blockchain, with the island named among the five small economies at the forefront, together with Georgia, Thailand, Malta and Liechtenstein.
