The European Computer Driving Licence is an internationally accepted certificate. It can simplify employment procedures and assure the employer that applicants and staff have the necessary level of knowledge and competence to use common computer applications.
The ECDL is a certificate of knowledge and proven competence and is based on a single agreed Syllabus. The overall objective of the ECDL programme is an improvement in the level of basic knowledge about Information Technology IT and a higher level of basic competence in using personal computers and common computer applications throughout Europe and internationally.
The ECDL is an information technology certificate for all citizens. It is intended for those who need to, or wish to, know how to use a personal computer. It is suitable for people from every work discipline, for people entering the job market, and for all ages.
The ECDL qualification allows workers, students and citizens to formally show, with their certification, that they have basic knowledge and competence in personal computer use. For example, office workers who want their skills using a personal computer formally recognised, will want to take the ECDL tests and obtain certification.
As such the target group for ECDL is a very broad population. The ECDL is a certificate of knowledge and competence in personal computer use at a basic level. The Knowledge Areas and Skill Sets included in the ECDL Syllabus are those recognised by expert practitioners in the various domains as being necessary to cover basic knowledge and competence in using a personal computer and common computer applications. All the above are elements of the ECDL standard. They are described in more detail in the following sections.
Module 1 Concepts of Information Technology IT , requires the candidate to have an understanding of some of the main concepts of IT at a general level.

The ECDL standard is based on the computer user knowing certain basic facts about Information Technology IT and having the basic knowledge and skills to use a personal computer and its software applications to carry out everyday tasks. The ECDL tests are software vendor independent.
The ECDL may be certified by manual evaluation testing or by automatic evaluation testing. The ECDL certification procedure is moving towards automatic evaluation testing. The education and examination procedures can differ between countries, however the ECDL Foundation requires that a valid and well-defined examination process together with a reliably operated testing process be in place at all approved Test Centres.
The standard test is localized for use in different countries, while using the same Syllabus and therefore documenting the same level of knowledge and competence in computing. The ECDL dissemination programme differs from most national or international education programmes, since it is based on a standard test or examination instead of a standardized teaching approach. An ECDL that is certified in one country is valid in another.
The candidate will obtain a Skills Card before taking the first test. A Skills Card is an official form that is used to record each test successfully completed. As he or she passes each test, the Skills Card will be updated. When all seven tests have been passed, the candidate will be eligible for a European Computer Driving Licence.
The modules can be taken in any sequence and the tests can be taken in different Test Centres and indeed in different countries. The duration of a standard ECDL test is 45 minutes.
Minor errors, such as spelling and typing should not lead to failure. An answerfile may be provided on the Candidate Disk in order for the candidate to undertake the test.
The answerfile includes a numbered table for candidate answers and a section for the candidate to enter their Candidate Identification details. Alternatively candidates may provide their Module 1 question answers on test scripts. Test 1 Which type of computer is used to operate large corporate systems and databases 1.
