European Computer Driving License (ECDL) computer training course

ECDL training Edinburgh

The European Computer Driving License (ECDL) has long been established as the number one computer user qualification in the UK. It is recognised by virtually all employers looking for such a qualification and for an increasing number of employers it is becoming compulsory for all new staff.  There are two versions of ECDL.

The original one is now called ECDL Core and it consists of 7 modules:

  • Concepts of IT
  • File Management
  • Word Processing
  • Internet and Email
  • Databases
  • Presentation (Powerpoint)
  • Spreadsheets
The newer one is called ECDL Extra and it consists of 4 modules
  • Word Processing
  • Spreadsheets
  • Presentation (PowerPoint)
  • Improving Productivity Unit

Both options also represent a good standard for anybody wishing to learn more about a particular computer skill.

To gain each of the qualifications, each of the component modules must be passed successfully by passing a 45 minute test.

Tests must be taken at our centre on Comiston Road in Edinburgh. 

The cost of the ECDL Core qualification, including manuals, 7 tests, ECDL Logbook and telephone/email support throughout the duration of study is £300 

The cost of the ECDL Extra qualification is £230
