Web3 Certification Board Established to Create Accredited Blockchain Certifications 

For Immediate Release

Washington, D.C. – July 10, 2023 – The newly formed Web3 Certification Board (W3CB) has been established to develop accredited certifications and standards in blockchain technology, distributed ledgers, and related decentralized technologies. 

The W3CB will create certifications aligned with international standards from ANSI and ISO/IEC 17024. This ensures W3CB certifications will meet global requirements for personnel certification programs. Course completion certificates are not the same as accredited certifications, which require independent oversight and renewal requirements.

“There is tremendous demand for trusted, vendor-neutral certifications that validate blockchain skills and knowledge,” said Bryant Nielson, CEO of the Web3 Certification Board. “Our certifications will provide employers, professionals, and consumers confidence in certified blockchain and web3 experts.” 

The W3CB will start by developing foundational certifications around blockchain fundamentals. More specialized tracks will follow, along with assessments that align with industry needs and standards. Programs will be structured to be globally consistent yet locally relevant.

“Completing a blockchain course is just the first step,” added Nielson. “Individuals need to prove they have mastered the skills through independent certification testing. That’s what the W3CB will provide.”

The W3CB plans to have its first certifications available by Q3 2023. It will work closely with industry leaders and experts to ensure programs stay current. Renewal requirements will also help certified individuals demonstrate ongoing learning and development.
