In terms of curricula advancement, the EITCA Academy - as an international IT competencies certification framework can be treated as a postgraduate program. It is less theoretical in its aproach than the academic programmes credentials and more practice oriented in order to be aligned with professional career development. While the European IT Certificaiton framework attests a similar degree of skills comprehensiveness as more formal academic programmes, it holds certain advantages, as more practically oriented, flexible and conducted fully online. The EITCA Academy constitutes a series of topically related EITC Certification programmes, which can be completed separately, corresponding on their own to standards of industrial level professional IT skills attestation. Both EITCA and EITC Certifications constitute an important confirmation of the holder's relevant IT expertise & skills, empowering individuals worldwide by certifying their competencies and supporting their careers. The European IT Certification standard governed by the EITCI Institute since 2008 aims to support digital literacy, disseminate professional IT competencies and counter digital exclusion by supporting people living with disabilities, as well as people of low socio-economic status and the pre-tertiary school youth. This conforms with the guidelines of the Digital Agenda for Europe policy as set out in its pilar of promoting digital literacy, skills and inclusion.

New programme developments in the EITCA Academies and EITC Certifications within the scopes of Internet marketing, mobile applications, web design and management.
Participants may study the curricula covering comprehensive video and textual didactic materials available fully asynchronously (allowing participants to define their learning schedule freely) and will find the answers to all of the examination questions (each of the EITCA Academy constituent EITC programme ends with a remote online examination, passing of which conditions granting of the corresponding EITC Certificate).
The examinations can be retaken without limits in a number of retakes and without any additional fees charged for retakes. All EITC Certificates can only be issued after achieving a minimum level of 60% at their corresponding examinations and only after successfully passing all EITCA Academy constituent EITC examinations will the participant be entitled to the issuance of the corresponding EITCA Academy Certification. There are no limits in examination retakes (at no additional charges) as well as no time limits of any kind to finish the programmes, so the participants can take their time and examination approaches, to properly prepare for and pass the corresponding examinations. After the participant passes a single EITC examination he/she will be granted a corresponding EITC Certificate, and after obtaining all EITCA Academy constituent EITC Certificates he/she will also be issued the corresponding EITCA Academy Certificate which will attest professional and comprehensive specialization in a corresponding digital field.
Each EITC examination is implemented via an online web browser session and comprises 15 multiple choice questions, each with 4 possible answers (hence in total 60 multiple choice questions' answers in the single examination session) and has a time limitation of 15 minutes. Accordingly to the applicable regulations, the EITC examination passing score is 60% of correctly answered questions out of 15 randomized multiple choice closed examination questions. The individual examination question is only considered as answered correctly, when all its correct answers are marked, while all incorrect answers remain not marked. If, for example, only one correct answer is marked and remaining correct answers are left unmarked, or some other incorrect answers are also marked, then the relevant question is considered as not answered correctly.
In regard to programming and other practical assignments, these do not make a required element of the examination and certification procedure. However EITCI provides for all participants of its certification programmes unlimited online expert consultancies, answering all questions in regard to the certification curricula so that participants can better prepare to undertake relevant certification examinations (such consultations may also include voluntarily undertaken practical assignments).
