Many ways to achieve ICDL
All candidates who are enrolled with us are given support and advice and are thoroughly prepared before attempting any exams. Our success rate has climbed to 80% in 2009!
We take care of all the administration with the ICDL Foundation and the learners receive their certificates from us.
Formula 1 is for candidates who have all the required knowledge. These learners are registered and sit for assessments and exams.
Formula 2 is for candidates who have sufficient access to a computer, who have most of the required knowledge and who want to work through the manual independently.
Workshops are held on the last Saturday of the month to help with exam preparation.
Formula 3 is for candidates who have sufficient access to a computer, who have some of the required knowledge and who want to work through the manual independently, noting problem areas and addressing these during private tuition sessions. This package includes 7 workshops.
Formula 4 is for candidates who have sufficient access to a computer for homework and practice but who prefer to attend classes and be led by a facilitator during evening classes. This formula is very popular as it gives support every step of the way.
Formula 5 is for school-going candidates who have sufficient access to a computer for homework and practice, attending afternoon classes, but skipping exam times and school holidays. Learners are enrolled for 2 years and will pay the same amount for the 2nd year as for the first year.
Formula 6 is for candidates who do not have sufficient access to a computer or time to attend classes. They can use our training centre for homework and practice at their own convenience but will not attend formal classes.
Formula 7 is suitable for learners who have sufficient access to a computer and want to study at in their own time at home or office, but still keep the option of interaction with a facilitator. They receive a CD with computer based training in all modules. The software keeps track of their progress. If encountering problems, they contact our centre and have a workshop or private session (up to 7 hours).
