Digitally competent employees add real value to an organisation:

ICDL Profiles are personalised combinations of ICDL certifications which recognise that employees use technology for different reasons and at different levels of proficiency.
ICDL Profiles enable staff to achieve certification for those skills that most suit their needs or interests as they pursue their professional journey.
Individuals can grow their ICDL Profile over time as they update their skills, as technology evolves and as new certifications are developed.

I wanted to be sure that I was protecting our employees’ data, so IT Security was also important to me. This is my ICDL Profile.
I’ve saved time on my client admin by improving my project planning and report writing. I never had the basics of Data Protection before. My Presentations are much better now too.
