ESCCA is aware of the technical complexity and constant evolution of cytometry instrumentation and its applications that require continuous training and education. We also aim to help ESCCA members, and especially the young scientists, to attain excellence in their work in cytometry, be it in the clinical or in the basic fields. In order to attest the level of excellence of cytometrists the ESCCA Education and Accreditation Committee has created the European Cytometry Certificate, which is now in course of implementation.
ESCCA European Cytometry Certification Examination
ESCCA is currently developing an online version of the Exam.
This online exam will probably replace all the on-site exams that were offered during the ESCCA Conference or during the ESCCA International Schools.
Further details will be published on this website as soon as these are available. ESCCA members will receive an email at that time.
This European Cytometry Certificate will have two levels of certification:
Candidates will be presented with some 100 multiple choice questions on a wide range of topics. At least 60% of the questions have to be answered correctly in order to pass the examination and receive the ESCCA Certificate.
Conditions for exam application: ESCCA membership and 3 years of experience in the field.
