On May 18, 2018, Charlie Garry became the seventeenth Certified Blockchain Professional by scoring a 90% on the certification final exam. Charlie commented, "The class does an excellent job of defining and describing the benefits and use cases for blockchain technology as well as the technical advantages and disadvantages of the various consensus models. When complete, the student has been given the ability to not only understand blockchain but be able to explain it to others. I enjoyed the quizzes at the end of each section. They help you reinforce your understanding of what you just learned but it also appeals to my own goal-oriented nature and provides you with positive feedback (if you pass :) that pushes you on to the next section. Anyone who wants a strong grasp, at an overall (and yet detailed) level of blockchain will benefit from starting with this course. As mentioned earlier, I like the tests. They force you to focus and get more out of the class because you want to progress and you can't unless you pass." Please join me in congratulating Charlie on his achievement!
