International Computer Driving Licence (formally ECDL) is the certification
most widely recognised and highly valued by employers. ICDL equips the learner with practical
computer and Internet skills. Learners who
opt for the Base ICDL course will be required to complete 4 Modules to attain
an ICDL Essentials Certificate.
The Base ICDL course is offered as a Tutor Led Class option, or as a Blended Learning option.
