ECDL Popularity Soars


According to the British Computer Society (BCS) 1.2 million people in nearly 30 countries across the globe are now training for the European Computer Driving Licence - an internationally recognised computer qualification.

ECDL is designed specifically for those who wish to gain a basic qualification in computing in order to develop IT skills and career prospects. The ECDL syllabus is broken down into seven modules, each of which must be passed before the ECDL certificate is awarded. The seven modules are: Basic concepts of IT; Using the computer and managing files; Word processing; Spreadsheets; Database; Presentation and Information and Communication. Achieving the ECDL qualification benefits the individual by enhancing competency in IT and computer skills as well as providing an industry recognised qualification. Networking+ states "....the total number of UK candidates participating in ECDL has exceeded 200,000 and there are 1,500 test centres nationwide".

Due to its increasing popularity the BCS are currently working with the ECDL Foundation to develop and improve the course.
