ICDL Asia signed a Memorandum of Understanding with ACCA Malaysia on 20 September to introduce ICDL programmes to the organisation’s members in Malaysia. The agreement was signed by Tina Wu, ICDL Asia General Manager, and Vilashini Ganespathy, Head of Members for ACCA Malaysia. His Excellency, Richard Bruton TD, Irish Minister for Education and Skills, and His Excellency, Eamon Hickey, Irish Ambassador to Malaysia, witnessed the signing.
The agreement allows ACCA Malaysia to offer ICDL modules to ACCA’s members for the accumulation of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours. Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (TARUC), an ICDL Accredited Test Centre and ACCA Platinum Approved Learning Centre is the chosen delivery partner in this joint-collaboration.
The selected 4 ICDL modules are:
- Advanced Spreadsheets
- Advanced Presentation
- IT Security
- Online Collaboration
Following the successful collaboration between ICDL Asia and ACCA Singapore in March 2018, this is the start of the second joint project between ICDL Asia and ACCA Malaysia. We believe this is a good start for similar projects to take place in other ACCA territories as well.
