Introduction to Certified Blockchain Architect™ | Blockchain Council

hi everyone welcome to the introduction

to certified blockchain architect course

this course is designed to give you an

expert understanding along with

practical applications of the blockchain

domain this course will also help you

architecting your blockchain solutions

so what is certified blockchain

architect training or CB a CB a training

entitles you to utilize your expertise

to make important decisions related to

blockchain projects and to craft the

guidelines and structure of the whole

blockchain system considering the

requirement of the system a certified

blockchain architect is a skilled

professional who understands and knows

deeply what is blockchain and how

blockchain works and also uses the same

knowledge to build blockchain based

applications for enterprises and

businesses the CBA credential certifies

individuals in the blockchain discipline

of distributed ledger technology from a

vendor neutral perspective so we do not

talk about any specific technology or

promote them unless they have any

specific feature which is useful for any

research work and the blockchain work

the certified blockchain expert is

exhaustive training and exam based

program aims to provide proof of

knowledge to the certificate holder in

the blockchain space alright so when

we're developing the structure of the

course it's important to look at the

purpose of the course the purpose is to

establish and govern the minimum

standards for credentialing the

blockchain architect specializes in the

enterprise development measures inform

the public that credential individuals

meet or exceed the minimum standards

reinforce the blockchain expertise as a

unique and self-regulating profession if

you're looking for proving your skills

to the potential employers and research

projects we think that's

right purpose of the certified

blockchain architect for whom this

certification is well this course is

most relevant for software engineers and

architects application architects

programmers and developers because of

the technical nature of the course

software engineering and architects can

use this course to build blockchain

applications for their company in

offices application architects can get

an understanding of how the blockchain

application works so that they can

architect their applications the course

will also be beneficial for engineering

and management students who want to

understand how the whole thing works and

how this can benefit them with their

projects additionally a university

professor can use this to teach other

students and transfer their knowledge

from this certification to them in the

classroom operation head and business

want to learn how operations can be

optimized utilizing the blockchain or if

the blockchain is the right fit for them

or not

additionally senior government officials

can benefit from this course if they

want to understand how the government

can solve real-world organizational

problems using the blockchain technology

apart from that security professional or

administrator who wants to know how the

whole security architecture of the

blockchain work how the blockchain can

work securing the data and other

transactions easily even venture

capitalists angel and seed investors can

benefit from this course if they're

looking to invest in the blockchain

based startups and want to understand

how to define blockchain architecture

the benefit of this course the best

advantage of doing this certification

can get you hired easily because

nowadays many companies are looking to

integrate blockchain services in their

companies and this course will help you

learn the fundamentals of

he commonly used blockchain solutions it

is the right certification for you to

understand the underlying understanding

and gain the basic knowledge of the

blockchain to prove it during the

interview grasp the deep understanding

of blockchain and how it works

implement your skills to any blockchain

projects build your own blockchain

business with acquired knowledge if you

want to if you are a founder looking for

an idea then blockchain is the best way

to grow your business so what are the

requirements for taking this course

since this is a course about designing a

network architecture it would help if

you all have a basic knowledge of

computer science for instance knowledge

about how computer works how networking

works and other basic information about

web services you don't need an in-depth

advanced knowledge of these concepts and

we'll go over the concepts that will be

relevant to the course it would also

help to have awareness of crypto

currencies like Bitcoin etherium etc but

don't worry if you're new to some of

these concepts as we'll cover the parts

that will be relevant to the course you

must be motivated enough to learn the

blockchain deeply because that'll be

useful for you to successfully complete

this course a little bit of background

in programming and software development

will undoubtedly come in handy for

better comprehending the concepts

described in the course so there will be

around 8 hours of total training after

that there will be one hour of the exam

the exam will contain 45 questions which

you have to answer and you have to cross

the minimal threshold to get the

certification again the exam will be a

hundred marks you have to acquire 60

plus marks to clear the exam and if you

fail the exam you can retake the exam

after one day total three attempts are

allowed be

on three attempts if you failed to

acquire 60-plus marks even after three

attempts you would need to contact the

blockchain council team to have manual

assistance for clearing the exam this is

how the certificate will look like the

whole certificate the certificate will

be online verifiable on our blockchain

council website so anybody can search

for you and give you some projects if

they have some tasks they can reach out

to you from our websites this will be

the course content we will go through

the introduction first and then we will

understand what blockchain is how it

works and why blockchain is essential

then we'll jump into the understanding

of how and why it is better than the

traditional technology why you should

compare and how you should compare then

we'll answer the question of whether

blockchain is a Magic Bullet to all of

the business problems and also look at

how blockchain decisions are made then

we will go into different technologies

and programming languages that can be

used to architect blockchain

applications along with cryptography and

blockchain algorithms from there we'll

go on to looking at different kinds of

block chains such as private and public

block chains and permissioned versus

permissionless blockchain and cloud

versus native block chains next we will

learn about the different ways to

develop our own network nodes including

functional risks how to solve scaling

issues on chain vs off chain using

lighting network the cocoa framework

smart contracts and Oracle's will then

cover the business aspect of blockchain

using stakeholders in different types of

block chains then we'll move on to the

different technical components that make

up a block chain including ledger smart

contracts peers and protocols then

be ready to move to the main sections

about architecting and your own

blockchain solution we'll look at some

of the best practices to employ when

analyzing requirements and translating

them into functions after we have aptly

identified the requirements and

functions we can start building our

blockchain application by translating

stakeholders into nodes which can be

used to manage the network we can give

privileges to certain nodes and define

roles for the different types of nodes

we would also need to define development

resources that is the different

programming frameworks and programming

languages that will be used for

development finally we'll be moving on

to actual development and hosting then

for concluding we'll end by looking at

security issues in implementing

blockchain solutions including legal and

governmental regulations and the hurdles

faced by new entrants in the blockchain

space we'll also be taking a look at

some of the ways to mitigate the

enterprise operational and market risk

for blockades
