Training courses for the ICDL certificate, which is like a driving license for computers, are primarily aimed at professionals who want to provide written evidence of their digital competences. That said, people starting or returning to work also benefit from the topics covered on courses (and certification) – as do jobseekers. This is because ICDL certificates are recognized by many providers of educational services.
Important to know: Some companies support their employees with ICDL certification.
Our IT courses for professionals offer specialists and career-changers four themed modules on topics of practical importance:
- International Certification for Digital Literacy
- Web Development
- IT Service Management
- English for IT
Aside from building your specialist knowledge and digital competence, we also focus on bolstering your soft skills. The interactive nature of the live online seminars allows you to build and deepen knowledge in the areas that matter most and practice what you have learned in exercises.
Important to know: All modules are self-contained and can also be booked individually. Completing the entire series of IT seminars allows you to acquire the most important hard and soft skills, and build on key qualifications.
Our IT courses are eligible for education vouchers from the state, with subsidies of up to 100% possible. Education vouchers are available to the unemployed and jobseekers, but also people currently in employment. The idea is to ensure training costs are covered. We are happy to advise you on whether you’re entitled to receive a state subsidy. We can also help you complete all formalities required by the authorities.
