FULL SUITE OF ICDL ADVANCED COURSEWARE TO BE DISTRIBUTED IN SA
Masterskill, IT education courseware and learner management systems specialist, is the first company in SA to receive approval to distribute the full suite of Advanced International Computer Driving Licence (ICDL) courseware. CiA Training of the UK, which is represented in SA by Masterskill, recently became the first company in the world to gain ECDL Foundation approval for courseware in all four advanced modules. The ECDL Foundation controls and sets standards for all ECDL (Europe) and ICDL (International) training solutions and activities.
“After that, it was a natural progression for us to obtain accreditation for the Word, Excel, Power Point and Access Advanced ICDL courseware modules from the ICDL Foundation in SA,” says Masterskill MD, Terry Kier. “Demand for Advanced courseware in SA has been growing, both as a result of individuals wanting to achieve specialised qualifications, and from companies wishing to establish higher standards of IT competence among their staff,” he adds.
ICDL, an international qualification through which people demonstrate their competence in essential computer skills, offers many different computer-related courses, and provides internationally recognised standards definitions and measures of actual computer skills.
