I wanna make a CV in LaTeX template(europecv), but I have some problems with that. I change other skills and competatance to other skills and certificate, but when I enter the certificates in there as:

\documentclass[helvetica,openbib,logo,notitle,flagCMYK,totpages]{europecv}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[a4paper,top=1.27cm,left=1cm,right=1cm,bottom=2cm]{geometry}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{url}


\ecvname{Blah, Blah}
\ecvfootername{Blah Blah}
\ecvaddress{ a street, M alley, USA}
\ecvtelephone{041-1234567}
%\ecvfax{12345678}
\ecvemail{\url{Blah.Blah@gmail.com}}
\ecvnationality{American}
\ecvdateofbirth{apr 11 1998}
\ecvgender{Female}
%\ecvpicture[width=2cm]{lion.png}
\ecvfootnote{For more information call me please}



\ecvitem[10pt]{\large Other skills and certificate}{Risk Management Course Certified by: Tehran University, registered by IIIE, Nov 2007 ;\\
    Quality Management System Internal Audit based on ISO 9001:2000 QMS, ISO19011:2002-certified by: TUV ACADEMY RHEINLAND, May 2008 ;\\&

I received this error:

extra alignment tab has been changed to /cr.

How can I solve it?

    Probably you have too many columns. Does ecvitem expect 6? According to documentation it expects exactly none. – TeXnician Oct 21 '17 at 16:38

You have several errors in your code. Please see the corrected code:

\ecvitem[10pt]{\large Other skills and certificate}%
  {Risk Management Course Certified by: Tehran University, registered by IIIE, Nov 2007; %\\ <======
  Quality Management System Internal Audit based on ISO 9001:2000 QMS,
  ISO19011:2002-certified by: TUV ACADEMY RHEINLAND, May 2008; %\\& <==============================

In the used class \\& is not allowed in command \ecvitem. I commented them out or masked & with \& to get it printed.

With this changes your code compiles with the following MWE
