A new agreement between LQAS, the ICDL National Operator in Libya, and the Abu Salim Municipal Council will see 100 candidates trained, tested and certified to the ICDL standard.
Targeted at local unemployed and young people, the partnership will use ICDL modules, including Online Essentials and Computer Essentials. Testing will take place at the local municipality’s Accredited Test Centre in Abu Salim, with funding for the project also coming from the Abu Salim Municipal Council, under their social development plan and commitment to raising digital proficiency in the area.
The participants will receive 100 hours of training before taking ICDL certification tests. Successful candidates will be awarded ICDL certificates to show that they have acquired the basic skills and abilities needed to productively use digital technologies.
