On November 22, 2017, Surya Khoday scored a 93% on the 300-point final exam to earn the distinction as the first Certified Blockchain Professional! Surya took the exam for his own personal growth without seeking any sponsorship from his current employer. "I was nervous about the final test as the questions throughout the 10 module curriculum really tested you. Plus, the 80% threshold for passing was very powerful so you had to really study the content to pass the tests.", Surya said. After hearing Blockchain U Online's founder, Paul Tatro, speak at the IDC Blockchain for Executives conference in Boston in early November, Surya told Mr. Tatro that he wanted to be the first person to register for the certification course. Literally, seconds after the enrollment went live, Surya registered and immediately started into the curriculum. Surya is a Business and Technology consultant with many years of experience in solving client problems with enterprise solutions, data and analytics. He firmly believes in the value of Blockchain enabled innovation capabilities to solve business and societal challenges. If you would like to contact Surya, you can reach him at email@example.com.
