CompuBase gets UAE education ministry approval for ICDL training
CompuBase, the United Arab Emirates (UAE)-based computer learning compant, is the Emirate's first private training organization approved by the Ministry of Education to become an accredited certification center for the International Computer Driving Licenses (ICDL), the global competency standard for computer literacy.
Sponsored by UNESCO-UCO and recognized as an accreditation standard in more than 57 countries, ICDL certifies the basic skills required to use computers at home or in the office.
"ICDL is rapidly becoming an employment pre-requisite by renowned organizations worldwide. It brings a new dimension to computer training in the UAE, providing a practical, flexible and cost-effective way of learning, testing and certifying primary computer skills," said Jamil Ezzo, deputy managing director of CompuBase.
The vendor neutral competency standard has been developed to increase knowledge of personal computers and the use of common computer applications. It covers the fundamentals of information technology; using a computer and managing files; word processing; spreadsheets, databases, presentations and information and communication, including the Internet and email. — (menareport.com)
