The Blockchain Architect track is comprised of three modules that develop skills in Blockchain functions, architectural models, technology and security. The final course module consists of a series of lab exercises that require participants to apply their knowledge of the preceding courses in order to fulfill project requirements and solve real world problems. Completion of these courses as part of a virtual or on-site workshop results in each participant receiving an official Digital Certificate of Completion, as well as a Digital Training Badge from Acclaim/Credly.
To achieve the Blockchain Architect Certification, Exam BC90.01 must be completed with a passing grade. A Certified Blockchain Architect understands the business value and technology architecture behind Blockchain, as well as the inner workings of Blockchain technologies and solutions. In addition to a proven understanding of the distributed ledger, immutable data storage and consensus processing, a Certified Blockchain Architect has proficiency with Blockchain architectural models, distributed ledger co-existence models and Blockchain security threats and counter-measures. Those who achieve this certification receive an official Digital Certificate of Excellence, as well as a Digital Certification Badge from Acclaim/Credly, with an account that supports the online verification of certification status.

Module 3: Blockchain Technology & Architecture Lab
Participants are to solve a series of exercises and problems that are designed to test their ability to apply their knowledge of topics covered in previous courses.
By completing this lab, participants will know the area that requires further attention and will further prove hands-on proficiency in blockchain technologies, mechanisms and security controls as they are applied and combined to solve real-world problems.
For instructor-led delivery of this lab course, the Certified Trainer works closely with participants to ensure that all exercises are carried out completely and accurately. Attendees can voluntarily have exercises reviewed and graded as part of the class completion.
