BCS IT User Skills (ECDL Essentials) Award Level 1

Upon successful completion this course will provide you with a qualification recognised throughout Europe. The European Computer Driving Licence qualifications enable people to demonstrate their competence in computer skills and in particular Microsoft Office applications.

The key aims of the qualification are to raise your level of competency in IT skills, and to improve your productivity at home and work while gaining an industry recognised qualification. You will be taught in the classroom by a tutor, and will be assessed by sitting an online exam after each module.

To achieve a full ECDL qualification you will need to complete both part one and part two. Knowledge of using a Windows PC is important to undertake this course.
