"ICDL helped me get a job!"

In today's workplace, it is important that employees have the ability to use technology efficiently and effectively. Employers expect job applicants to have computer skills prior to being hired, whereas employees with the right skills have the potential to progress further in their careers.

Certified Computer Skills:

  • Make applicants more attractive to potential employers
  • Enable employees to be more productive
  • Increase the likelihood of career advancement


What Employers Want

Employers know that people with computer skills are more productive. They are more efficient in carrying out tasks that could otherwise be time-consuming. They use technology to communicate more effectively and waste less time troubleshooting IT issues. Employers want employees who are skilled and who will contribute to achieving the goals of the business in the most efficient, effective, and productive manner.
