Applied Skills Certificate

ICDL Applied Skills Modules comprise 12 standalone certificates, with each one of them focused on filling a learning gap essential for working professionals to specialize in a domain (e.g. Digital Marketing) or enhance their performance in any role (e.g. Presentation).

Applied Skills Modules offer flexibility, allowing candidates and organisations to develop competence, and expertise in a way that is appropriate to them. Importantly, this flexibility gives opportunities to not only engage with new candidates but to re-engage with existing candidates, to facilitate their goal of lifelong learning.

Candidates can choose to pursue one Applied Skills Module or take a combination of multiple modules. Shown below are certification formats for candidates pursuing Applied Skills Modules:

  • Applied Skills Certificate: To be issued to candidates who pursue one Applied Skills Module
  • Productivity Skills Certificate: To be issued to candidates who pursue the Basic Skills Certificate along with any three Applied Skills Modules
  • Profile Certificate: To be issued to candidates who pursue more than one Applied Skills Modules but don’t meet the certification requirements of the Basic Skills Certificate
