WBO Certification

The WBO’s Training and Certification programs were developed to accomplish one task – provide the various industries with highly trained, qualified talent. This professional designation will allow individuals to lead industry blockchain initiatives from inception to delivery. It demonstrates the professional’s ability in use case discovery and solution development, all the way to production deployment and ROI reconciliation. There is preexisting professional experience that is also required, however, part of the journey is deep foundational blockchain knowledge and exposure.

Who is the WBO Certification candidate?

A professional in the various industries with or without blockchain experience and exposure to technology drivers in the industry looking to increase skills required to plan, develop, deploy and operate blockchain initiatives is a perfect candidate for the certification program.

The Blockchain Knowledge System

WBO’s the Blockchain Knowledge System (BKS) serves as the major gateway for alliances and collaboration between companies, educational & research institutions, regional authorities and NGOs, this interactive platform provides a space for members to engage in dialogues, share information and take further action. Its principal mission is to foster synergies among Members, and promote the exchange of knowledge and expertise.

BKS has developed a variety of tools and structured its basic framework according to the four following fundamental goals:

Exchange of expertise:
To address the goal of exchange of expertise, WBO creates BKS where members from different backgrounds can meet around a common topic of interest to discuss challenges, share experiences and build common solutions to advance the development of blockchain.
Knowledge generation
BKS has developed a prototype methodology which serves as a framework where stakeholder from the public and private sectors can collaborate on the development of innovative blockchain products to address existing challenges in blockchain and improve a organization´s competitiveness. Furthermore, WBO publishes Global Reports in which Members actively participate to provide wide-ranging and current data and trends on emerging blockchain segments.
Knowledge dissemination
The range of WBO conferences and seminars, held throughout the year, bring together WBO Members, experts and opinion leaders to present their areas of expertise and advance knowledge in blockchain. All members are encouraged to actively participate to ensure representative, wide-ranging and thought-provoking content.
Talent development
Capacity building and education are crucial components of the Blockchain Knowledge System. Initiatives include training, internship and scholarship programmes, as well as the development of knowledge management platforms and networks. A good example is WBO’s official website, on which WBO Members can interact by showcasing internship and scholarship opportunities as well as research and funding projects.
