The ICDL remote certification tests provide candidates with an opportunity to take the ICDL certification exams remotely, particularly in situations where traditional classroom exam settings are not feasible. This offers a convenient and flexible way for candidates to demonstrate their computer proficiency while obtaining the widely recognised ICDL certification. The format and content of the remote ICDL certification test are identical to the in-person exam and are closely monitored by trained proctors to maintain the integrity of the testing process. 

To assist in conducting the ICDL Remote Certification Test, ICDL Asia has developed several resources for remote certification testing and e-learning. 

If you are an ICDL candidate, please speak to your contact person at the centre where you usually take your ICDL course. They will be able to advise you how they will be working with the ICDL programme during the COVID-19 crisis. The information on this page is mainly intended for ICDL Asia Accredited Test Centres.

Remote testing

We have implemented a remote invigilation protocol to allow you to run ICDL certification test sessions with candidates remotely. That means that a test session can be run when both the Accredited Tester and ICDL candidate are unable to come to the test centre physically.

Please use the link to the right to download our Remote Invigilation Guidelines. These explain everything you need to know about how to run a remote test session. You can also download an information sheet to give to candidates, explaining what they need to do to take part in a remote test session.

Once a remote test session is complete, you need to submit a report. You can do this online by clicking on the button below on the left. You will also need to submit a Remote Session Registration Form. You can download this using the button below on the right.

e-Learning materials

To help your candidates to continue to learn and prepare for ICDL certification tests while they are remote, we have made our learning materials available as e-learning through the Skillsbox platform. If you would like to use these resources, please contact ICDL Asia. 

ICT in Education

Teachers are on the front line of supporting our communities. Almost overnight, education switched from the traditional classroom setting to online distance learning. For many teachers, the work to move their teaching online has not just involved moving lessons to video conferencing. Teachers’ digital skills have been called on like never before.

ICT in Education. This module certifies the key concepts relating to the use of ICT in education, and supports teachers in effectively using ICT in education.

If you want to use the ICT in Education module, please contact ICDL Asia. The module is currently available in English and is available as an ICDL Module Pack, including online learning materials.
