About Cardano Blockchain Certified Associate (CBCA)

The Cardano Foundation, the Swiss-based not-for-profit organization advancing blockchain as a public digital infrastructure across a wide range of industries, is offering the first professional certification for its Cardano Academy. The certification provides industry recognition of the candidate’s knowledge, skills, and proficiency in both blockchain and Cardano.

The candidate will obtain certification issued by the Cardano Foundation after they successfully pass a CBCA exam in an authorized Pearson VUE Test Center.
