We are pleased to announce to our candidates the availability of distance testing for all ICDL certification programmes through our ‘Remote Proctored Testing Platform’, a new inclusion to our international standards of testing, designed to remotely administer your ICDL testing from the convenience and safety of your home or your workplace. 

The new distance testing platform offers tests identical in content, format and on-screen experience to the ICDL tests taken in-person at an accredited test centre.
