15,000 Civil Servants and Tertiary Students to be ICDL Certified Under New ICDL Asia Agreement with Thailand TPQI
ICDL Asia and the Thailand Professional Qualification Institute (TPQI) signed a Memorandum of Understanding on 8 September at a meeting in Bangkok. The agreement was signed during a visit to Thailand by ICDL Asia, and follows the official recognition of ICDL as the national ICT standard for workplaces in the country.
Under the agreement, ICDL Asia and TPQI will collaborate to offer ICDL to at least 10,000 civil servants and tertiary education students this year, with plans to offer ICDL to 30,000 people next year.
The agreement is in line with Thailand’s vision of embarking on a journey towards Digital Thailand 4.0, which envisions a digital transformation in the country. The national vision is to incorporate the use of technology into the market to enhance efficiency. ICDL certification will ensure that the digital skills of civil servants and future workers will reach the standards needed for this bold vision.
