BCS accredits UK Professional Golf Association as ECDL centre

The British Computer Society (BCS) has accredited the UK Professional Golf Association (PGA) as a European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) learning centre.

ECDL is a computing qualification which, according to the BCS, has been taken by 1.5m people worldwide. The ECDL syllabus contains seven modules, each of which must be passed before an ECDL certificate is awarded. The modules include word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, databases, and information and communication.

One hundred PGA staff will initially take the ECDL qualification before it is made available to all 7,000 professional members and becomes an option on the PGA's three year Golf Management degree.

Pete Leavy, BCS qualifications strategic marketing manager said: "We're delighted to accredit the PGA as a centre for ECDL, their commitment to developing their staff and members will help them gain a business advantage, enjoying more efficient use of technology, increased staff retention at the same time as demonstrating an investment in people and enhancing the skills of their employees."
