"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."
