 ECDL Automated Testing Centre

Ballycommon Telework and Training Centre Ltd is an ECDL Accredited Testing Centre.  On completion of the tutor-led or e-learning module the candidate then sits the electronic diagnostic test (practice test).  The result of the diagnostic test is reported immediately the test is completed. The candidate can then contact the test centre and arrange to sit the online test.  The candidate would be expected to carry out various tasks within the relevant application.  The ATS (Automated Test System) monitors the candidate’s ability to complete the task correctly and automatically returns the final result at the end of the exam.  
Each module is tested separately with each test lasting no longer than 45 minutes.  The tests can be attempted in any order in our centre.
