The exams are designed and organized by Italian universities and are held at the Italian Cultural Institute in Bucharest. Written tests are corrected in Italy at each university. Certificates obtained following the exams are issued by the universities and have international recognition.

FIDES coursesfor exams to obtain Italian knowledge diplomas are organized on request, individually or in groups. A standard module consists of 32 hours and runs for two months, for two hours twice a week.
As these are courses organized on request, the starting date ,number of classes, frequency of sessions, program, and syllabus of the course will be determined by mutual agreement.

Preparation courses organized at FIDES in order to support these exams are aiming both at improving linguistic knowledge (understanding of spoken language, reading comprehension, ability to communicate orally and in writing ), and at familiarizing students with the methodology and technique specific to each particular exam. We mention that the familiarization with that methodology and examination technique is imperative for obtaining good results.

Courses use cutting edge methodologies and materials (textbooks, exercises, tests) published abroad and designed exactly to prepare for that particular exam.

Fides courses are taught by experienced university professors specialized in the methods taught at Fides.
