ECDL Advanced

The ECDL Advanced qualification is designed to progress your computer skills from European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) to the next level of competence.

How advanced ECDL works

We offer courses and examinations for all our four Advanced ECDL modules:

  • Word Processing
  • Spreadsheets
  • Databases
  • PowerPoint.

A certificate will be awarded on successful completion of each module. ECDL Advanced will prove that an individual's competence with computer use is well above the basic skill level, and will help determine suitability for jobs involving a higher level of computer use.
