BCS offers free membership to successful ECDL Expert candidates

An opportunity to acquire free membership of the British Computer Society is being offered to successful candidates of the BCS's core IT skills qualification product - the ECDL Advanced qualification.

ECDL Expert, a certificate awarded to candidates who complete all four ECDL Advanced Modules, now carries a free six month Associate Membership of the BCS (AMBCS).

According to David Clarke, chief executive of the BCS, "Society membership is not offered to anybody - only those who can demonstrate commitment to professional standards supported by accredited qualifications. And in view of the fact that BCS membership is broadly viewed by the UK IT sector as a proof of merit, this is a valuable offer."

ECDL Advanced, like ECDL, is a task-based qualification designed to measure an individual's skills in the use of word processing, spreadsheet, database and presentation applications. In order to obtain the qualification, candidates must sit the test at an Accredited Test Centre.
