ECDL


ecdlECDL (ICDL outside Europe) is the international standard in end-user computer skills. The ECDL Syllabus consists of 13 modules that define the skills and competencies necessary to be a proficient user of a computer and common computer applications.

For an individual to achieve a solid base of skills and knowledge, therefore attaining a minimum level of digital literacy, we recommend that candidates complete and attain certification in a minimum of four ECDL / ICDL modules. Although modules 2, 3 and 7 are recommended modules plus any 1 additional module, other combinations of four modules are an acceptable standard in many countries.

Individuals who have achieved the ECDL certification can successfully demonstrate their competence in the use of a computer and common computer applications.
