ECDL, known as ICDL outside Europe, is the world's leading computer skills certification. To date more than 15 million people have engaged with the ECDL programme, in over 100 countries, through a network of over 24,000 ICDL Accredited Test Centres (ATCs).

The ECDL programme defines the skills and competencies necessary to use a computer and common computer applications. It offers a wide range of modules including Computer Essentials, Word Processing and IT Security. Candidates take tests in the modules which are most relevant to their educational and professional requirements, thereby creating their ECDL Profile. Whether in school, university or in the workplace, ECDL offers the skills you need to succeed.

The ECDL programme is operated worldwide by ECDL Foundation, a non-profit social enterprise, headquartered in Dublin, with offices around the world. Current ECDL modules cover a wide range of skills, from the essentials of using a computer, to understanding information literacy and using digital marketing tools.
