Introduction



Perhaps you know something about computers, but find it hard to define exactly what your level is. You're confident you can use a PC efficiently, but you can't really prove it. Business requires “basic competence”, what does that mean? And how can you be sure that you have already reached this level? Or perhaps you're just starting on the approach roads to the Information Superhighways.

 

Enter the International Computer Driving License - A qualification instantly recognized wherever you go.

 

The ICDL establishes standards for everyone who uses a computer in either a professional or a personal capacity. It is a certificate that verifies your competence, declares your computer skills, and makes readily mobile within International businesses and across the Community and across the world. European and worldwide employers and job seekers all agree on the need for this standard definition of practical competence in Information Technology.

 

BCAS is one of the earliest approved Test Centre in Sri Lanka to award ECDL by British Computer Society and Later ICDL by ICDL-Asia Pacific.

 

We provide online examination with our last Two Years Experience in ECDL/ICDL, we use tested and very easy methods to train the students who wish to gain the certificate as quickly as possible.

 

ICDL is also accepted by several foreign Institutions in Sri Lanka as a qualification to follow other programs in Computing in their respective countries.
