ICDL Training

The ICP, in cooperation with UNESCO, became a licensed testing center for the International Computer Driver’s License certificate (ICDL), a certification recognized worldwide as showing competency in fundamental computer skills across most commercial software platforms (Microsoft, Lotus, etc.).

ICDL Background

The European Computer Driving License (ECDL) is a European certificate that demonstrates a person’s competence in computing knowledge and skills in accordance with pan-European standards. It is owned and managed by the ECDL Foundation, a non-profit organization based in Dublin, Ireland. The International Computer Driving License (ICDL) is an international version of ECDL for use outside the EU countries. It is identical to ECDL in terms of syllabus and test content, as well as methods of testing, auditing, and accreditation.

The ECDL/ICDL syllabus, designed and regularly updated by a panel of experts to ensure relevance to the working world and advances in technology, covers the key concepts of computing and their practical applications and use in the workplace and society. It consists of seven modules, each of which must be passed before the ECDL/ICDL certificate is awarded. The modules are:

  • Basic Concepts of information technology
  • Using the computer and managing files
  • Word-processing
  • Spreadsheets
  • Database
  • Presentation
  • Information and Communication

Target Group

ECDL/ICDL is open to anyone regardless of age, education, experience, or background. It is designed specifically for those who wish to gain a basic qualification in computing to help them with their current job, develop their IT skills, and enhance their career prospects. While no prior knowledge of IT or computer skills are needed to obtain the ICDL, the student may need to do some training before sitting for the tests.
