The Fintech Education Programme will return this summer, and applications are being accepted.

The international programme will run from June 12 to July 14 and feature live lectures, real-time instruction and meetings with mentors from locally regulated fintech firms.

David Burt, the Premier and Minister of Finance, encouraged Bermudians to apply for the programme, saying: “More fintech companies are coming into Bermuda, and it is important that upon arrival, they find local talent that is well-versed in the industry and ready to drive the jurisdiction forward.

“This programme ensures that the participants are sufficiently knowledgeable and connected to succeed in this environment.”

The Economic Development Department’s Fintech Training Programme is based on the ViableEdu Fintech Apprentice Programme featuring live online instruction, discussion sessions, in-person meetings and forums.

A spokesman for the EDD said: “The programme comprehensively presents the mechanics of financial market systems and technology’s role in market development.

“It also includes additional modules, such as job preparedness and soft skills, which the Department of Workforce Development will present.”

Jason Hayward, the Minister of Economy and Labour, added: “The fintech programme is an essential initiative that not only enhances Bermuda’s diversification but also prepares its workforce for this ever-evolving working world.

“By participating in this programme, individuals can expand their knowledge, skill set, network and be equipped to contribute to the local fintech sector.”

Enrolment for the EDD’s Fintech Training Programme is now open, with an application deadline of May 31.

A formal graduation event will celebrate those who successfully complete the programme.

To assist those interested in participating in the programme, the EDD will host a meet-and-greet with alumni from the 2022 programme and the ViableEdu curriculum development and delivery team on Tuesday at 5.30pm.
