Having computer skills and being able to prove them through a recognized certification is crucial when you apply for a job.
The use of a commonly accepted “language” in this field allows everyone to evaluate his or her own ICT skills and, above all, to add them to the curriculum, so that they can be easily evaluated by potential employers.
For an easier evaluation of the digital skills of students and workers, the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) provides a comprehensive framework of the e-competences that an average user of computers, internet and new information and communication technologies should have.
The EIPASS certification, with 7 User Modules, provides an objective and neutral certification of the possession of intermediate skills in the use of ICT tools and represents a valid qualification for the recognition of additional scores for school or university careers and for competitive exams.
The Fondazione Campus is an EI-CENTER, a CERTIPASS authorized centre for “EIPASS 7 User Modules” certifications. Users may therefore take the “7 user modules” exam at our centre or attend a preparation course organized by Fondazione Campus and then take the exam. The exam tests for each module will be held on an on-line platform; each test has a duration of 30 minutes and it will be possible to take the tests for more than one module in one same session.
