EUCIC Certificate

registration is closed

More than ever, the EUCIC continues to look forward to new IPC advancements.

Upcoming event

The upcoming trainee programme is an exciting two-year learning journey, covering a diverse range of Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) and Healthcare-Associated Infection (HAI) topics. Join us to further your professional skills and shape the next generation of IPC standards across Europe!


In an era defined by the global spread of Infectious Diseases (IDs), marked by the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic and the escalating threat of multidrug-resistant organisms, the necessity for intensified commitment to Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) is critical. Yet, among these challenges, training opportunities and IPC qualifications remain unfortunately scarce. However, within Europe’s diverse approaches to tackling IPC lies expertise, rooted in local epidemiology and healthcare system organisation, offering the potential for significant impact when shared. This is why, building upon these rich perspectives and approaches, the EUCIC continuously hosts a tailored educational programme designed to shape the next wave of IPC experts, equipped to confront the evolving challenges of ID and antimicrobial resistance (AMR).


The deadline for the EUCIC Certificate Programme is 10 May 2024.
