Over 220 sit European Advertising Certificate exam across EMEA

For the second time since its launch last year, over 220 young professionals from the European Association of Communications Agencies (EACA) member agencies across Europe, Middle East and Africa had the chance to obtain the European Advertising Certificate (EAC), a foundation-level qualification for adlanders with up to two years’ industry experience.


The young professionals from over 35 nations completed a 25-30 hour online learning programme, providing a thorough understanding of the advertising industry and its processes. This was then followed by a three-hour written examination, which participants sat earlier this month. Results will be published in June.

Says Dominic Lyle, Director General, EACA, "I am very pleased that today’s junior agency practitioners are keen and willing to be well prepared for the everyday challenges the industry presents them with. With the EAC qualification we give them the right tool to take these opportunities based on their better understanding of the entire brand communications process.”

Says Patrick Mills, Director of Professional Development, IPA, “The EAC qualification will give junior members of the advertising industry the knowledge to help make the most out of their career. We are delighted to have teamed up with the EACA to offer this qualification across 35 countries, resulting in more agency staff being able to perform their roles with confidence and expertise.”
