What is ICDL?
The International Computer Driving Licence (ICDL), formerly ECDL, establishes standards for everyone using a computer in either a professional or personal capacity. It provides documentation to show that the holder can use a computer in practice and has some basic IT knowledge.
Started in Finland, ICDL is now recognised in 17 European Countries, as well as Canada and Australia. It is governed worldwide by the ICDL Foundation, which is based in Ireland. See the website at www.icdl.ie.
Who's it for?
All UCC Staff & Students.
IMPORTANT: The information below is what ICDL is at present but exciting new changes are on the way! See https://icdl.ie/ for details.
The UCC Test centre will continue to role out ICDL in it's present format to existing candidates. However we will not be accepting any new candidates until 2022.
Candidates will receive an ICDL profile once they have registered and passed one ICDL module. Each subsequent module gets added to the ICDL Profile.
