Certified Smart Contract Auditor™

Smart contracts are protocols for automated transactions that are stored on a Blockchain and are executed in response to meeting certain pre-set conditions. The contents of the agreement are inscribed directly into the lines of code. However, as the value of transactions increase, so does the risk of malicious attacks. In fact, recent attacks on Solana, Ethereum, and DODO DEX have led to a loss of millions of dollars. Smart contract attacks also tarnish the credibility of the protocol and the project team behind it. Hence, the role of a skilled smart contract auditor becomes extremely crucial to secure these self-executing smart contracts. The Certified Smart Contract Auditor Certification is designed by expert industry auditors that covers smart contract audits from the very basic to the advanced level. It includes smart contract fundamentals, the study of multiple DeFi attacks, using multiple development frameworks, an exploration of best practices and tools, detecting vulnerabilities, a dive into regulatory compliance, legal considerations and case studies. After successfully completing the Certified Smart Contract Auditor Certification you’ll be able to identify and rectify potential vulnerabilities in any smart contract! It’s time to do it right!
