Certification Exams

Certification proposed by ESC subspecialty communities


The ESC is offering cardiology practitioners a range of certifications to test and assess their knowledge, skills and performance in their practice following post-graduation, educational and training experiences.

ESC certifications are both a proof of professional excellence to the patients and a way for practitioners to enhance their good practice.


1) Exam - Theoretical part delivered on Tablet

This part consists of an exam with multiple choice questions (MCQs). The passing scores for each section are established after each exam within the Sub-Committee, based on statistical performance of individual questions and on the average level of scores taken from the respective examination. 

 2) Logbook - Practical part

Candidates will have to pass the theoretical section successfully before going to the second part. For the practical part, candidates must submit a logbook. It is designed to demonstrate the training, skills and experience of the applicant, under the guidance of supervisors. This part involves practical skills assessment.
