ICDL

The Centre for Continuing Education has been granted rights by the Computer Society of Zimbabwe to train and test the ICDL certification. The Computer Society of Zimbabwe was granted sole rights by the International Computer Driving License Foundation to administer the ICDL within Zimbabwe and its sole purpose is promoting continued development and a formal, internationally recognized qualification for its members and the general public.
WHAT IS THE ICDL?
ICDL is a world-wide qualification which enables people to demonstrate their competence in computer skills. Its aims are:
• to raise the general level of competency in IT;
• to improve productivity at work;
• to enable employers to invest more efficiently in IT; and
• to ensure that best practice and quality issues are understood and implemented.
The ICDL syllabus is designed to cover the key concepts of computing, its practical applications and their use in the workplace and society in general. It is broken down into seven modules, each of which must be passed before the ICDL certificate will be awarded. ICDL is open to anyone - regardless of age, education, experience or background.


The modules are:
• Basic Concepts of IT
• Using the computer and managing files
• Word Processing
• Spreadsheets
• Databases
• Presentation
• Information and Communication

• IT Security

Whilst the skills required to pass ICDL may be demonstrated on a number of software products, the information and diagrams contained in these study guides are based on Microsoft office. The centre is however pleased to inform the public that it is one of the few centers that train the latest version of Microsoft Office 2007 package inline with developments in industry.
