European IT Certification Academy Introduction

The European IT Certification Academy (EITCA) is a part of the European IT Certification (EITC) framework.

The European IT Certification framework was established in 2008 as a vendor independent standard in widely accessible, online certification of digital skills and competencies in many areas of professional specializations. The European IT Certification Institute (EITCI Institute) governing and accrediting this framework is an international not-for-profit organization acting in a legal form of the Association Without Profit Purpose (ASBL) in accordance with the provisions of the Title III of Belgian Law, granting legal personality to non-profit associations and establishments of public utility. EITCI Institute was founded to support accelerating growth of the information society and counteracting digital exclusion by development and dissemination of the European IT Certification standard, increasing accessibility to IT competencies certification services among individuals in the EU and globally. It has been carrying out its mission for over 14 years and has established one of not many vendor-independent digital skills certification frameworks competing globally and based in the EU. EITCI focuses on the development of its certification programmes’ curricula, but also contributes to standardization of emerging IT technologies in cooperation with international standards setting organizations and in support of the European Commission’s Horizon programme. Although EITCI Institute’s main purpose is in development and dissemination of the European IT Certification IT skills attestation framework, it is also active in technical standardization and technology certification in emerging IT fields, such as AI applications in domains of critical importance (for example in AI assisted smart energy, cf. https://eitci.org/technology-certification/sesg) or in advanced quantum information and communication technology (cf. https://eitci.org/technology-certification/qsg), supporting further advancement of its AI and cybersecurity competencies certification programmes curricula.

Since 2008 the European IT Certification Institute has supported access to educational resources on digital technologies. From engagement in the ESF and ERDF funded projects of open-access educational materials creation and free dissemination, through cooperation with individual experts, publishing didactic materials in an open-access form, EITCI has contributed to a wide scale dissemination of accessible educational materials in digital technologies, some of which are also directly used as referenced didactic materials that cover relevant certification programmes curricula. The European IT Certification curricula are planned, developed, accepted and updated by experts in relevant fields, including both academics and practitioners. As mentioned EITCI also provides for all Participants of its certification programmes unlimited online consultancies by expert staff, answering all questions in regard to the certification curricula so that Participants can better prepare to undertake relevant certification examinations.

EITCI also provides unlimited access to online didactic consultancies answering all questions of its programmes’ Participants in regard to the certification curricula so that Participants can better prepare to undertake examinations.

Important characteristics of the European IT Certification differentiating it from other available certification frameworks include:
- Vendor independence and wide expertise coverage in the EITC/EITCA certification curricula
- Permanent nature of all issued certifications (no need for a future recertification)
- No time limits to finish any of EITC/EITCA programmes
- Unlimited access to online expert consultations
- Fully remote online certification procedures
- Digital validation of all issued certificates

Review #1

Elke Wambacq

Change management, HR en communicatie

Time hop: 8 years ago I was a guest of the current Prime Minister Alexander De Croo, who was committed to the digitization of governments, among other things. It was then Toon Vanagt who had given up his seat for me so that I could tell something about dinosaurs in government and that in addition to technology, a system change is also needed to successfully succeed in the mission.

Now, 8 years later, I have to go back to college. An AI and machine learning course through the EITCA Academy. Understand how AI effectively has the potential to disrupt the way we work and do. From e-commerce to even our democracy. I am very curious about tomorrow, because everything is changing step by step every day.

I am also looking forward to March 24. Then there is a meetup (Future of Work in Belgium) where I will do a workshop and dialogue about this topic together with Patrick Van Renterghem.

EITCA/AI Artificial Intelligence Academy Certification Programme

For me as a technical layman it is good to be fully immersed in that matter. I notice that my job as a change manager will change in such a way that it will be necessary to at least have some notions of how the technology works and to speak the language. Especially when organizations evolve into ecosystems, a common language and mutual understanding of professional domains is almost crucial. In my opinion, the value of this certificate is just like with all other courses: what you ultimately do with it. You have to be extremely disciplined to follow this: everything is given through videos and communities are also advised to literally educate yourself. Stupid example: I lost at least hours yesterday connecting Tensorflow to my Python notebook from Anaconda. I work with Mac and apparently the M1chip is not fully compatible with Tensorflow. So yes, there you are without a flesh and blood mentor 😅 In the end, a prompt on chatGPT helped me and I succeeded.

Please to be starting the Artificial Intelligence certification course with EITCA Academy: https://lnkd.in/dMmb9Y4u

I am still working through the course, but yes it is very good content and learning materials. You need to have time to study — hence the reason I am still doing it :-)

On a scale of 1–10 in EU IT exams how does the course fare? I would say between 8–9 out of 10.

Digital Marketing Expert

🎉🎓 Proud to announce that I’ve successfully completed the EITCA Academy/AI Artificial Intelligence programme! This comprehensive curriculum covers a range of AI competencies, including Google Cloud Machine Learning, TensorFlow, Python, Keras and PyTorch, Advanced and Reinforced Deep Learning, and Quantum AI. The programme also introduced me to the Google Cloud Platform and deepened my Python programming skills.

EITCA/AI Artificial Intelligence Certification

The EITCA/AI certification is more than just a testament to the knowledge I’ve gained — it’s an endorsement of my ability to navigate the AI landscape, an area with profound impacts on our economy and society.

The programme involves successfully completing multiple European IT Certification (EITC) programmes, each adding a unique facet to my understanding of AI. From Machine Learning with Python to Deep Learning with TensorFlow, I am now equipped with a diverse range of AI skills.

AI is not only transforming the way we interact with the digital world, from smart search and translation to complex process optimization and autonomous driving, but also influencing emerging fields like the Internet of Things and robotics. I’m excited to apply what I’ve learned to make a positive impact in these areas.

A big thank you to the faculty at the EITCA Academy for their support throughout this journey. Looking forward to putting these skills into practice and advancing in the exciting world of AI! 💡🚀

Hi everyone!
I just wanted to let you know that the European Information Technologies Certification Academy (EITCA) in Brussels offers 80% subsidies on its programmes.

They offer a wide spectrum of Certified programmes, ranging from Web Development, AI, Computer Graphics to Cybersecurity and many other interesting IT courses. I am in no way affiliated with this institution, just came across this information and thought that someone might find it useful. You can find more information on their website:
