The ECDL (European Computer Driving License) certification is a highly recognised qualification, it offers you a key recognition of your literacy in computer skills and is designed for novices or casual computer users and will get you to a high computer literacy standard. The ECDL Certification is the fastest growing IT user qualification in over 125 countries, with many UK companies setting the ECDL as a mandatory requirement, such as the NHS and the Police Service of Northern Ireland.

Without basic computer skills one can be quite cumbersome in the office, limiting their roles and value. Some employers or companies may not even consider you as a candidate without a reasonable level of computer skills. The ECDL certification training is designed for novices or casual computer users that will take learners to a high computer literacy standard by improving your knowledge on these key areas:

  •     Computer Essentials

  •     Spreadsheets (Excel)
  •     Word Processing (Word)
  •     Databases (Access)
