Hyperledger Fabric & Sawtooth Certification Exams Coming Soon!

We strongly believe in helping organizations and developers overcome obstacles to blockchain adoption by investing in training and certification courses for Hyperledger. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that Certified Hyperledger Fabric Administrator and Certified Hyperledger Sawtooth Administrator exams will be released later this year!

Below is more information on the certification exams:

Certified Hyperledger Fabric Administrator

The Certified Hyperledger Fabric Administrator (CHFA) can 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.

Exam sections will include:

  • Application Lifecycle Management
  • Installing and Configuring the Network
  • Diagnostics and Troubleshooting
  • Membership Service Provision
  • Network Maintenance and Operations

Certified Hyperledger Sawtooth Administrator

The Certified Hyperledger Sawtooth Administrator (CHSA) can 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.

Exam sections will include:

  • Installation
  • Configuration
  • Permissioning, Identity Management & Security
  • Lifecycle
  • Troubleshooting

The certification exams were made possible thanks to generous help from the community. Specifically, we’d like to call out and thank the participating individuals for the time they contributed to shape the content for these certifications:

Hyperledger Fabric

  • David Gorman, IBM
  • Dinesh Kumar, Oracle
  • Ernesto Lee, Blockchain Training Alliance
  • Greg Skerry, Altoros
  • Manu Varghese, Greenstream Technology
  • Yaoguo Jiang, Huawei
  • Naresh Thumma and Bhasker Nallapothula, Biarca
  • Ry Jones, Hyperledger,
  • Liz Kline, The Linux Foundation
  • Clyde Seepersad, The Linux Foundation
  • Toki Winter, The Linux Foundation

Hyperledger Sawtooth

  • Dan Middleton, Intel
  • Tom Barnes, Intel
  • Richard Berg, Bitwise IO
  • Ryan Beck-Buysse, Bitwise IO
  • Val Reid, PokitDok
  • Anthony Adkins, PokitDok
  • Gregory Skerry, Altoros
  • Neeraj Srivastava, DLT Labs
  • Jovan Maric, DLT Labs
  • Chris Spanton, T-Mobile
  • Ernesto Lee, Blockchain Training Alliance
  • Tracy Kuhrt, Hyperledger
  • Ry Jones, Hyperledger
  • Wallace Judd, Authentic Testing
  • Toki Winter, The Linux Foundation
  • Liz Kline, The Linux Foundation

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 are completed remotely from virtually any location with a stable internet connection and webcam. Those who fail to pass the exam on their first attempt can retake the exam one additional time at no cost.

But the certifications are not the only thing to be excited about – you can now enroll in a new LFD271 – Hyperledger Fabric Fundamentals training course, which was also announced by The Linux Foundation today. LFD271 is designed for developers. They will learn how business logic is implemented in Hyperledger Fabric through chaincode (Hyperledger Fabric’s smart contracts) and review the various transaction types used to read from and write to the distributed ledger.

The LFD271 course instructor, Jonathan Levi is the founder of HACERA, and one of the early contributors to Hyperledger Fabric. He helped shape the Membership Services (the permissioning layer of Hyperledger Fabric) and was the official release manager of Hyperledger Fabric 1.0. He has built several large-scale mission critical systems that had to be highly available, secure and fault-tolerant.

Be on the lookout for these certifications as well as a beta tester program where we will invite members of the community to take the exams. If someone completes the beta exam with a passing grade, they will become one of the first Certified Hyperledger Fabric or Sawtooth Administrators upon launch of the program.

We hope you join us in contributing to Hyperledger projects. As always, you can keep up with what’s new with Hyperledger on Twitter or email us with any questions: info@hyperledger.org.
