ECDL : European Computer Driving Licence

If you are in Europe, the ECDL is a good first qualification for those who have no computer experience at all, and had just begun. This is the basic qualification that tells an employer that you are IT literate. Also will show that you are interested to learn. Do not expect high-paying job with a qualification; use it as an entry-level certificate that you can build.

If you just want to make a start with a computer, and do not particularly want the job in the computer, get the ECDL certificate can be real to improve your confidence.
Many ECDL training can have for free in the UK, if you are in a particular state benefits.
ECDL - What is involved?

ECDL qualification which consists of a theory test and practical 6. A skills card, which known as the log book, issued to the students. Once the tests pass, the log book will be updated. When all 7 tests pass, you get the ECDL.

For Module 1, you need 27 out of 36 multiple choice questions correctly to pass. For the other 6 modules, you need 24 out of 32.

Examples of questions, taken from Module One for the tests in 2003, are:

T. which software would you use to create a mail shot letter

a) Web browsing software
b) Spreadsheet software
c) accounting software
d) Word processing software

6 other modules in the same tone, but you will be asked to perform tasks while at the test center. In the test word processor, for example, there will be a document that you have to open and make changes. Any successful change is probably worth one mark. If you get 24 marks out of 32 then you will have passed that module.

The seven modules are:

* Concepts in Information Technology
* Using the Computer and Managing Files
* Word Processing
* Spreadsheet
* Database
* Presentation
* Information and Communication

If you want to save a little money, you can buy a book ECDL, studying for several months, and then a test at the nearest book ECDL test center. Each test lasted for 45 minutes, though, so you're not going to sit all seven exams in one go!

If you prefer not to educate himself, then maybe there will be a training organization close to your residence to do ECDL qualification. Shop around and you might get some free training! (Examination will not be free, however.)
