The European directives constitute the standard to which all the Institutes refer to draft their programme; CERTIPASS obtains the programme more common, EIPASS 7 Modules by 2 sources: the e-Competence Framework for ICT User (e-CF) e the Digital Competence Framework for ICT User (DigComp).
The e- CF is published by CEN, the Institute of standardisation of the European Community (https://www.cen.eu/Pages/default.aspx); to realize this standard has been produced to the permanent workshop in which CERTIPASS participates actively with the representors of the several European member state.
