Hyperledger blockchain consortium has launched a new program that will offer training and professional certification to service providers to ensure that they are well equipped to install, configure, operate, manage and troubleshoot networks built on Hyperledger distributed ledger technologies (DLTs).
Called the Hyperledger Certified Service Provider (HCSP), the program is a pre-qualified tier of vetted service providers who have deep experience helping enterprises successfully adopt Hyperledger. The certified service providers will offer support, consulting, professional services and training to enterprises embarking on their blockchain journey.
According to a press release, the first wave of companies to complete the criteria and qualify as HCSPs for Hyperledger Fabric includes Accenture, Ant Financial, Beijing PeerSafe Technology Co., Chainyard and IBM.
Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director, Hyperledger, said that with the growing adoption of Hyperledger technologies, enterprises are increasingly looking for partners with the expertise needed to deploy Hyperledger DLTs quickly and efficiently
"By providing a structured program to train and certify service providers on core Hyperledger technologies, we are creating the infrastructure for both enterprises and services companies to meet the demands of deploying production networks and developing and supporting new applications,” he said.
To qualify as an HCSP, an organization must fulfill certain criteria. This includes its membership with Hyperledger, having three or more engineers who have passed the Certified Hyperledger Administrator Exam for a specific project and having a business model to support enterprise end-users, including putting engineers at a customer site.
Currently, certification is available for both Hyperledger Fabric and Hyperledger Sawtooth. The Certified Hyperledger Fabric Administrator Exam and Certified Hyperledger Sawtooth Administrator Exam are offered by the Linux Foundation Training.
