Continued growth in adoption of blockchain technology spurs creation of new opportunities to gain and demonstrate skills.
The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization enabling mass innovation through open source, today announced enrollment is now open for the new LFD271 – Hyperledger Fabric Fundamentals training course. Additionally, Certified Hyperledger Fabric Administrator and Certified Hyperledger Sawtooth Administrator exams will be released later in the year. A Professional Certificate Program – Blockchain for Business – was launched earlier this year on edX along with a free course entitled Blockchain: Understanding Its Uses and Implications.
“Blockchain technology adoption is increasing at a rapid pace – with TechCrunch reporting blockchain jobs as the second-fastest growing in today’s labour market – leading to a shortage of professionals who are qualified to implement and manage it on an enterprise scale,” said Linux Foundation General Manager, Training & Certification Clyde Seepersad.
“After seeing more than 100,000 students take our free introductory Hyperledger course, we knew it was time for more advanced training options, and certification exams to demonstrate the extent of professionals’ knowledge.”
LFD271 – Hyperledger Fabric Fundamentals
The Hyperledger Fabric Fundamentals course introduces the fundamental concepts of blockchain and distributed ledger technologies, as well as the core architecture and components that make up typical decentralized Hyperledger Fabric applications. Students will work with Hyperledger Fabric, Hyperledger Fabric Certificate Authority and the Hyperledger Fabric SDK.
Certified Hyperledger Fabric Administrator Exam
The Certified Hyperledger Fabric Administrator (CHFA) will be able to effectively build a secure Hyperledger Fabric network for commercial deployment. To pass the exam, professionals must demonstrate the ability to install, configure, operate, manage, and troubleshoot the nodes on that network. Completion of LFD271 may help serve as preparation for the CHFA exam but is not required.
Certified Hyperledger Sawtooth Administrator Exam
The Certified Hyperledger Sawtooth Administrator (CHSA) will be able to effectively build a secure Hyperledger Sawtooth network for commercial deployment. To pass the exam, professionals must demonstrate the ability to install, configure, operate, manage, and troubleshoot the nodes on that network.
Both the CHFA and CHSA exams will be available to take before the end of the year. As with all Linux Foundation certification exams, the exams will be available remotely from virtually any location with a stable internet connection and webcam. Those who fail to pass the exam on their first attempt will be able to retake the exam one additional time at no cost.
