The Core level Syllabus is divided into three knowledge areas: Plan, Build and Operate.
Knowledge Area 1 – Plan
This covers the use and management of Information Systems, and is subdivided into the following areas:
Knowledge Area 2 – Build
This deals with the acquisition, development and implementation of Information Systems, and is subdivided into the following:
Knowledge Area 3 – Operate
This third area concerns installation, supervision and maintenance of ICT systems.
EUCIP provides a learner-friendly, non-traditional pathway with flexible course delivery. It encompasses an estimated 300-400 study hours, dependent on the prior experience and knowledge of the individual learner.
Certification in EUCIP is performed using the ICS Skills Automated Testing System (ATS). The ATS combines the best of all worlds: authentic candidate experience, cost-effective testing, streamlined processes, consistent scoring, and simplified, paper-free candidate management.
There is one hour-long, online test for each of the three Knowledge Areas. The Plan Knowledge Area contains 45 questions, while the Build and Operate Areas have 40 questions each. The pass mark is 75%.
In addition to the three EUCIP certification tests, the ICS Skills ATS provides a full suite of diagnostic tests. These can be used for pre-training and pre-testing assessments to help identify individual knowledge gaps and training needs.
