Government Endorsements and Framework Mapping

ICDL Foundation is a Global Social Enterprise dedicated to raising digital competence standards in the Workforce, Education and Society. We believe that access to technology and developing digital skills dramatically improves lives and that no one should be left behind in this era of digital transformation.

ICDL Foundation is the regulatory body for the ICDL Certification, recognised throughout the world as ‘The Digital Skills Standard’. ICDL was formerly known as ECDL in Europe, from its launch in 1997 until May 2019, when the new ICDL brand Identity was launched, officially uniting ECDL and ICDL as one brand.

ICDL Certification is now available in over 100 countries, across our network of more than 20,000 Test Centres, delivering over 70 Million ICDL Certification Tests to more than 16 million people worldwide.

ICDL Foundation supports the initiatives of National Operators of the programme in Europe and the Arab States from our headquarters in Dublin, Ireland and our European office in Brussels, Belgium. We have also established three regional operations – ICDL Africa (based in Rwanda), ICDL Asia (based in Singapore) and ICDL Americas (based in Panama). Our National Operators, Partners and Test Centres adhere to strict Quality Assurance Standards, which ensure that ICDL Certification is the trusted digital skills standard wherever you are in the world.

Governments on almost every continent have endorsed the ICDL programme for their citizens, or use it to train and certify the digital skills of their public servants.
