One of the EHRA goals is to improve the level of education in the field of cardiac electrophysiology in Europe.

EHRA affiliates industry organised training courses that meet EHRA objectives, providing a high-level scientific content. Both "clinical" and "basic research oriented" courses may be considered for affiliation.

The affiliated courses are part of the EHRA Educational Framework, constituting 2 tracks of training, a Device Track and an Invasive EP Track.

Both tracks are centered around the EHRA Educational Courses. Together, they provide an extended and multi-faceted training experience for fellows and established electrophysiologists.
