What is ECDL?

 

“European Computer Driving Licence”

Established in 1996 and rolled out worldwide

Qualification that enables people to certify their competence in essential IT knowledge

Certifies to a set standard the IT skills candidates already have or are gaining through training

The organisations supporting ECDL represent a broad cross section of industry and academia

Why is ECDL so effective?

“ECDL is a standard definition and an actual measure of computer skills, that is internationally recognised, and it provides a balance between employer needs and employee skills.”

Benefits to the individual
