Kerala Blockchain Academy (KBA), a general partner of R3 consortium, offers training and certification program on Corda platform in association with R3. The Certified Corda Developer program provides developers with the knowledge to build and deploy Cordapp on the Corda platform. Corda is a blockchain-inspired platform, that works as a distributed ledger which is mainly designed for business, technical professionals, entrepreneurs. Corda enables companies to transact directly with each other, with the help of smart contracts and distributed ledger technology. Corda enables business systems to lessen transaction and record-keeping costs. This training program primarily targets developers with knowledge on basic web development tools and object-oriented programming techniques to build an application on top of Corda Distributed Ledger Technology. Our specially designed curriculum introduce everything needed to understand the DLT technology, write and build CorDapp applications that can interact with Corda Network. Students will create a mini project that demonstrates key Corda features.

WHO CAN ENROL?

The course is open to anyone with an intermediate level of knowledge on any object-oriented programming language, preferably, Java or Kotlin. Also, basic knowledge of Blockchain technology is highly advocated to get a good grip of DLT. We recommend the candidates who are new to blockchain to enrol and audit the Certified Blockchain Associate (CBA Online) Course offered by KBA before enrolling to this.

FINAL PROJECT

Each participant of this course is expected to identify one business use-case/project idea, discuss and develop the application using Corda. There will be an individual project evaluation and presentation which is mandatory for the successful completion of the program. There will be 20% weightage for the Quizzes, and 80% weightage for the code evaluation. To successfully complete and get certified, you need to score a minimum of 65%.

CERTIFICATION

Certification is based on Continuous Evaluation through online quizzes and final project presentations. After the successful completion of the course and project, Kerala Blockchain Academy will issue the learner with a CCD certificate and the same will be sent to their registered e-mail address. Kerala Blockchain Academy will also issue the certificate in a public Blockchain and the authenticity can be verified at https://verify.kba.ai/ or by scanning the QR code embedded on the certificate. The CCD program modules are highly related and aligned to the requirements for Online Corda Developer Certification Exam conducted by R3 Consortium. Candidates can take the exam online (at an additional cost) if they wish to get official Corda certification.
