Certified Hyperledger Fabric Administrator

Note: The Certified Hyperledger Fabric Administrator (CHFA) certification exam will cease being available for purchase as of Monday August 15, 2022. The final date to sit for the exam will be December 15, 2022.

This exam is due for an update, and in evaluating its content the decision was made to completely refresh the exam, tied to the upcoming Fabric 2.5 LTS release, and launch a new credential in Q1 of 2023.

The new credential will contain some of the content from CHFA and CHFD so Hyperledger Fabric administrators and developers will continue to have a highly relevant certification available to them. Existing CHFA and CHFD certifications will remain valid until their expiration date (3 years from date the exam was passed).

The Certified Hyperledger Fabric Administrator (CHFA) will be able to to install, configure, operate, manage, and troubleshoot the nodes on a secure commercial Hyperledger Fabric network.

The Certified Hyperledger Fabric Administrator certification covers the following areas:

  • Application Lifecycle Management
  • Install and Configure Network
  • Diagnostics and Troubleshooting
  • Membership Service Provider
  • Network Maintenance and Operations

This exam is also available in Japanese.  Certified Hyperledger Fabric Administratorの試験問題は日本語にも対応しています。日本語を話す試験監督のもとで試験を受けたい方は認定Hyperledger Fabric管理者を選択してください。

The output of this working group targets both technical and non-technical audiences. The goal of this group is to help develop the following free and open source training materials:

  • presentations
  • graphics (both still and motion)
  • webinars
  • videos
  • self-paced training
  • instructor-led training (to include both presentations and labs)
  • sample code used during training, hosted on Github
  • meetup kits

All are welcome to participate in this working group regardless of experience or availability. Please consider getting involved today!
