The Globally recognized CIO Certified Blockchain Professional (CCBP) Designation is issued in partnership with the CIO Association of Canada and is accredited as a professional development program by the Institute of Management Consultants (CMC Ontario, Canada).
The certification is open to business and technology professionals, executives and entrepreneurs globally.
Two options to earn the Certification:
- Option 1: The recommended approach is for professionals to attend the bootcamp. Those attending the bootcamps will receive a discount coupon for a discount off of the original price. Please use that coupon code to register here and save. In cases where the discount provided is already equal to or greater than the coupon value, the coupon is not applicable.
- Option 2: Professionals unable to attend the bootcamp, can self-study the curriculum and self-certify by completing the same exam and a capstone project - all online from anywhere on your time. When you register, an email containing curriculum details for self-study and materials covering some of the areas required to certify will be provided. You will have 60-days within which to complete the certification process.
Certification requires successfully passing a 60-minutes open-book exam and the capstone project.
A post-secondary education or equivalent of at least 2 years of professional work experience is required in any field. Candidates must be 18 years or older.
