ICDL or International Computer Driving Licence (formally ECDL) is the certification most widely recognised and highly valued by employers.

ICDL Professional is designed to meet the needs of modern professionals in a range of sectors and develops an advanced level of skills for those with technology-reliant roles.

ICDL Professional contains a range of advanced modules that focus on the use of productivity applications such as Word Processors; Spreadsheets, Presentations etc. The syllabus content of each module is supported by learning materials that mirror day-to-day tasks and responsibilities typical of a role in the sector or industry.  It is a requirement that candidates complete the relevant module in ICDL Workforce (or equivalent) before embarking on an ICDL Professional Module.

We offer two different study options for ICDL PROFESSIONAL which are:

Tutor-led class – this option can be offered to small groups wishing to complete an ICDL Professional Module together.  It covers one module at a time and is suitable for groups of four to six people.  Candidates will attend in-person classes led by a tutor, twice weekly for 10 weeks and will also be expected to complete revision work at home.  The tutor will provide all instruction and information necessary in a structured format.  Classes are small, allowing for a more focused approach and may suit companies who have staff wishing to upskill.
Blended learning – this option is ideal for individuals wishing to complete an ICDL Professional Module.  It covers one module at a time, and offers the flexibility of learning at the individual’s own pace, while also having the support of a tutor.  The Blended Learning option requires the learner to take control of their own learning at home, using an online learning unit.  Learners have greater flexibility and convenience, with 24/7 access to the learning unit. Five hours of tutor classroom support are also offered for a period of 10 weeks per module from enrollment so learners can have face-to-face or online video tuition to clarify any points that they are finding difficult.
