WHAT IS ICDL?

ICDL/ECDL is an internationally recognized qualification in IT skills, certifying to a set standard the skills people already have, or the skills they attain through training. Throughout Europe, this qualification is known as the European Computer Driving License (ECDL), while in countries outside of Europe who have adopted the standard, it is known as the International Computer Driving License (ICDL).


ICDL is the world's leading end-user computer skills certification program. It is internationally recognized as the global benchmark for end-user computer skills and is the leading certification to be adopted by governments, international organizations and corporations alike.
