Speaking on the occasion of issuing the 7 millionth Skills Card, Damien O’Sullivan, CEO ECDL Foundation, said: "For the past 10 years the ECDL Foundation has worked to raise the level of ICT Skills in society, to increase users’ confidence in computer usage and to enable access to the information society for all citizens.
"Seven million Candidates being registered with the ECDL / ICDL certification programme is a significant achievement which shows that we set the global benchmark in end-user computer skills programmes. Nevertheless, this achievement also indicates that the public’s awareness of the importance of ICT certification has increased over the past few years."
