The Certificate of Attainment in Greek
The Certificate of Attainment in Greek was established in 1998. It is an official test that examines the second/foreign language learners in their various skills in Greek. People who obtain the Ellinomatheia Certification are recognized worldwide for their language qualifications, which can be used to study in universities in Greece and in Europe or for professional reasons. UNCC (University of North Carolina at Charlotte), among other universities in the USA, give 3 credits for Ellinomatheia Examination.

Certificates are issued for successful candidates at any of the following six levels of attainment in Greek: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2. The levels are linked to the corresponding levels of the Common European Framework (CEFR).
