BLOCKCHAIN DEVELOPER CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
Blockchain Networks | Decentralized Applications | Integrated Projects
9 Month Self-Directed, Online Certification Program for 4,000ACAD
Program Description
The certification program is designed to upskill a competent programmer into a professional blockchain engineer ready to join a commercial blockchain project. The objective of the program is job readiness for the graduates and also provides any practicing blockchain developer with a complete program to fill any skill gaps.
The program builds a strong fundamental blockchain foundation, and specifically uses Solidity for the DApps portion of the training. With this foundation, the graduate can then add supplemental training in other protocols to meet any capability requirements.
Program Prerequisites

– Understanding of JavaScript development (promises, Node.js, npm, basic JavaScript front-end)
– Object-oriented programming, working with classes and objects (e.g. C#, Java, Python, JavaScript or C++
– Experience in Web development and REST APIs (build simple server-side Web apps).

– Understand logical problem statements and solutions and how to convert logical statements to code
– Good understanding of Algebraic principles and able to understand surface level of higher levels of mathematics
– Ability to learn and understand High level concepts
