Content and Syllabus:

The ECDL syllabus describes the knowledge and the skills required to achieve the ECDL standard. It covers basic computer skills and the use of common applications in the workplace, the home and in society in general. It is divided into seven modules, 6 practical and 1 theoretical. A test in each module must be passed before the ECDL is awarded.
The 7 ECDL modules are as follows:

Module 1:      Basic Concepts of Information Technology

The tests in these modules do not have to be taken in any specific order. When a candidate registers on an ECDL programme, he/she is allocated a Skills Card on which their progress through the seven tests is recorded. When all seven modules are successfully completed, the European Computer Driving License Certificate is awarded.
