ICDL is the world leader in digital skills certification that has just arrived in Brazil.

At this moment, more than 17 million people have participated in the ICDL programme in more than 100 countries, and its programme has been translated into more than 40 languages ​​and has a network of approximately 20,000 Test Centres around the world, where it is applied or examined.

The project, supported by the European Commission, was launched in Europe in 1995 to assess how to increase digital literacy levels throughout Europe.

In 1997, the ECDL Foundation, a non-profit organisation, was formally established in Dublin, Ireland.

From that moment on, ECDL began to grow in Europe, when the number of candidates exceeded 1 thousand; This event attracted the attention of countries outside Europe, which began to take interest in the concept.

The ECDL was later introduced outside Europe, where the certification was known as ICDL (International Certificate of Digital Literacy).

Now ICDL, together with its Brazilian partner Digital Brick, is seeking in Brazil organisations committed to the development of digital competencies to promote and offer ICDL certification programmes in the country.
