Contribute to create new courses for the Mojaloop Training Program and update existing ones

The Mojaloop Foundation’s Training Program is taking a significant leap forward, and we want our vibrant Community to be a part of this journey.

The Mojaloop Community is thrilled to announce new opportunities for members to contribute to our course development — an initiative that not only supports the growth of Mojaloop but also empowers you, as a Community member, to share your knowledge and expertise.

We’re looking for teams to:

  1. Revamp existing courses with fresh insights (you can find the full descriptions on our Training Courses page):
  • MOJA 102 — Expands on MOJA 101 and covers fundamentals of the DFSP interoperability API.
  • MOJA 103 — Gives you a deeper understanding of how Mojaloop works from a technical perspective, focusing on the open source side.
  • MOJA 104 — Shows how Mojaloop solves issues related to confidentiality, integrity, and security of payment processing.
  • Scheme 101 — Provides a non-technical but detailed look at Mojaloop schemes including ownership, participation, rules, and the business case for operation.
  • DFSP 101 — Explores why a digital financial service provider (DFSP) should use Mojaloop, and a variety of considerations for business and project owners.
  • DFSP 209 — Builds on DFSP 101 to provide practical steps for performing technical operations (TechOps) support functions.
  • HUB 101 — Explores the architecture of Mojaloop and explains the interplay between the scheme, the hub, and the platform.
  • HUB 209 — Provides an overview of the Mojaloop tools, processes, and operations for hub operators or potential hub operators.
  • TTK 101 — Reviews the basic features of the Mojaloop Testing Toolkit (TTK) and its usages.
  1. Craft entirely new training modules:
  • Executive Series Courses — Provides potential adopters with adequate information to make decisions on Mojaloop deployments.
  • HUB204 — Provides an overview of Mojaloop security and security operations for hub operators or potential hub operators.
  • DFSP 204 — Provides DFSPs an overview of Mojaloop security and security operations.
  • Third-party payment initiation (3PPI) / Payment Initiation Service Provider (PISP) — Reviews roles and functionality of Third-Party Payment Initiation (3PPI) and Payment Initiation Service Providers (PISP) in Mojaloop.

No matter which type you choose, your contribution can make a monumental impact. Imagine your work helping to shape the skills and knowledge of others in the world of financial technology.
