On 20th September 2018, ICDL Asia signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with ACCA Malaysia to introduce ICDL programmes to the ACCA members in Malaysia.
Ms. Tina Wu, General Manager of ICDL Asia and Ms. Vilashini Ganespathy, Head of Members, ACCA Malaysia represented the respective parties in the signing ceremony. The signing ceremony was witnessed by Irish Minister for Education and Skills, H.E. Richard Bruton, TD and Irish Ambassador to Malaysia, H.E. Eamon Hickey.
The MoU 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 (TAR UC), 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 Spreadsheet
- Advanced Presentation
- IT Security
- Online Collaboration
Following the successful collaboration between ICDL Asia and ACCA Singapore in March 2018, this is commencement for 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.
