skills. Many Organisations have already implemented the licence,
setting it as the performance benchmark they expect from their
employees. BTS will assist a client in establishing their own Test Centre
onsite and then plan, manage and deliver the ECDL programme.
The ECDL builds around a special user-friendly skills card. This card
records the skills you demonstrate in each of seven computer-related modules. As you pass each module
successfully, the corresponding skill is noted in your card. The final achievement of a full card leads to the
award of your licence. The ECDL consists of Seven Modules. A candidate is required to pass all seven modules
