Digital skills are essential in our society to be able to function well in the classroom and in the workplace. Everyone needs to be digitally literate. We offer practical modules for every digital skill.

Good to know: we work with computer societies, educators, publishers and training organisations to keep the content of our modules up to date. With an ICDL certificate, you are guaranteed a valuable proof of your digital skills!


We offer two ways to assess your digital skills:

  • A Diagnostic Test (50/60 questions) to get a clear understanding of what you know and can do
  • A Certification Test to show that you have met the ICDL standard.

On completion of an ICDL Certification Test, we will offer you an ICDL Profile certificate.
