European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL), known as ICDL outside Europe, is the global standard in end-user computer skills, offering Candidates an internationally recognised certification that is supported by governments, computer societies, international organisations and commercial corporations globally.
ECDL Standard is a test of practical skills and competencies and consists of seven separate modules covering computer theory and practice. To achieve the ECDL Standard certificate, the Candidate must successfully pass a test in seven modules.
ECDL Standard consists of two categories of modules:

- Intermediate modules allow individuals to build their digital competence, depending on their needs.
The Certificate awarded on successful completion of the seven ECDL Standard Modules offered by ECDL Malta and awarded by the ECDL Foundation is referenced to Level 3 of the Malta Qualifications Framework (MQF) and the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) for Lifelong Learning.
