Irish Defence Forces Highlight Benefit of ECDL


The Irish Defence Forces have noted the benefits that ECDL brings to their personnel at training institutions, on Naval ships, or on overseas missions.

Discussing the way that ECDL is integrated into the Defence Forces, Flight Sergeant Will Fitzgerald said, “the Defence Forces have an ongoing requirement for its personnel to be highly trained as computer and system users in an environment where competence in IT is essential for mission accomplishment.” … “Validation of [our] competency in IT skills is achieved through completion of the European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) program provided by the Irish Computer Society (ICS). A large number of personnel annually undertake ECDL training within numerous Defence Forces Training Institutions / Schools, on board Naval Ships and in overseas mission areas.”

A longer interview with Flight Sgt. Fitzgerald can be found on the website of the Irish Computer Society, the National Operator for ECDL in Ireland.
