The ICDL program is made up of a list of modules. Each ICDL module provides a practical programme of up-to-date skills and knowledge areas which are validated by a test. This range of modules will enable you to develop and certify your computer skills in the subject areas of your choosing and to the level that you need – either for work, or for day-to-day life.
ICDL profile Customisation and flexibility have become an essential element of today’s digital environment. People use technology for different reasons, in different settings and at different levels. With ICDL Profile, you can become certified in the skills you require for your educational and professional needs. You choose the module combinations best suited to you which then represent your ICDL Profile. Attaining an ICDL Profile is a continual process. You can build on it over time, as your needs change, or as technology evolves and more modules are developed. In this way, your ICDL Profile grows with you: it shows your commitment to lifelong learning and the continuous upgrading of your digital skill set.
