In a blog post, decentralization-centric academy B9lab told the world that the first graduates of their Ethereum Developers Course are now registered on the Ethereum blockchain. This means they are soon going to have their certificates verified on the Ethereum Platform – a perk they managed to acquire from the course, by going through it and finishing it with an average of 80% or higher.

Graduates can also add their certificates to LinkedIn, as they’re now ready to take on some of the biggest challenges. B9lab itself says they trust their graduates with their own clients.

The company had the following quote on their blog post:

The course certificate is a signal of the highest achievement in the field and this also now can be checked via our blockchain certification center.

With a certification on the blockchain, graduates have an easy way to prove they are indeed certified. And, since the blockchain is public, everyone can see it, and there is no way to erase the information.

Ethereum Developers Course

B9lab’s Ethereum Developers Course is conducted online, and teaches software engineers the basics of the technology behind the blockchain. They are taught the language and tools they need to build decentralized applications on the Ethereum platform.

It’s a 9-week course, with an expected workload of 4-6 hours per week. The course focuses mainly on programming language Solidity and how to use web3 and the Truffle framework. The goal is to allow participants to build a working decentralized application they will then deploy and test.

Throughout the course, participants are supported by course directors who are a part of the blockchain community. Through the exchange of information, collaboration opportunities are also created.

At the end of the course, graduates should be ready to build DApps, even for some of the most demanding clients in the world, according to Elias Haase, founder of B9lab.
