Initiation to Blockchains

During this 1.5-day training to blockchains, students will discover the multiple concepts behind blockchains and crypto-currencies, and will understand why blockchain has become one of the most popular technologies. After exploring the history of the main blockchains and their applications, they will participate to several workshops where they will interact with blockchains, their tokens and smart contracts.

Delayed access timeframe

Since our trainings are organised upon request within two months after the first contact, the access timeframe may vary depending on your specific needs and custom training conditions which will all be agreed upon prior to the course.

Registration and course modalities

Our courses may either be done remotely or physically.

Prior to the course:

  • Either a meeting or a survey to identify your needs and expectations.
  • Shipment of administrative papers such as: written agreement, welcome booklet and rules of procedure.
  • Shipment of everything required to guarantee the good conduct of the course: external ressources, and custom instructions alike.

During the course:

  • The attendee goes to the designated location with his/her personal computer.
  • Time slots for our on-site Inter Corporation Trainings are the following:
    • Start - 9:30AM
    • Lunch Break - 12:00PM to 01:00PM
    • End - 05:30PM
  • Evaluations throughout the duration of the course (quizzes, tests and experimentations).

End the course:

  • Presentation of a certificate of training.
  • Auto-evaluation quizz.
  • A hot feedback form on the quality of the course.

After the course:

  • A cold feedback form on your satisfaction (roughly three months after the course)

Methods used and modalities for evaluation

Our courses may welcome a maximum of ten attendees and the number of tutors may vary between one and two depending on the amount of practical tasks in the course.

Parameters such as the number of attendees and their overall skill level will affect pedagogical modalities such as the number of pratical tasks, guided discussions, collaborative development, etc.

Courses may include small projects to develop independently to help consolidate the acquired knowledge.

The ressources are written by the OCamlPro team prior to the courses. Documents are generally written in english and can be translated to french if need be.

We make the progress of our trainees and its evaluation a core aspect of our courses. Indeed, guaranteeing the durable acquisition of the skills at hand is key, especially for the newer comers. To that extent, we will have trainees undergo tailored group works, exercises and hands-on practice which modalities can all be customised to your specific needs.

Accessibility, handicap

Preliminary studies are done prior to every training to guarantee the quality of the course by tweaking the pedagogical modalities and take into consideration any handicap communicated during the first stages of the registration. We are at your disposal to answer your every question and other queries at: contact@ocamlpro

Funding by OPCO and CPF

The funding of the training by the OPCO is possible as OCamlPro has received the Qualiopi certification. The two following conditions must then be attained:

  • The funding must cover all expenses relative to the course.
  • The funding agreement must get to us five days prior to the training session at the latest.

Our trainings do not yet deliver certicates or official qualifications and thus cannot be funded by your personnal CPF.
