International Computer Driving Licence is the world’s leading computer skill certification dedicated which mainly helps in raising digital competence standards in the workforce, in education and in society. Invention of computers made work easier for everyone in the workforce. It may have led to loss of labourers in different industries but it certainly made work easier and faster. Work done by computers are more efficient and accurate but the people operating them also need to be computer literate.
Existence of computers birthed more jobs than it killed. It helped the job market as new inventions like the internet came along which has in turn made things readily available for the public. Graphic designers, programmers, manufactures, engineers, content creators, software developers are just but a few of the jobs that emerged or were made easier after the invention of computers.
To make it in almost any job market having proficient computer skills is one of the qualifications needed to secure a job position. Due to this the number of millennials taking ICDL is gradually increasing by the years. It takes appropriately three months in most institutions to complete the course. Therefore makes it easier for millennials who are out of high school to enrol for the course as they wait to get into different universities and colleges.
A background in computer studies also makes it easier for the millennials taking the ICDL course they get familiarized with the basics and grasp the advanced units better. Some of the essential concepts and skills they get to learn include file creation and management, networks, data security, web editing, project planning, presentation, image editing among other things that will make them highly competitive in the job market.
However for those with no computer background for example some people in the rural areas of the country where it is less developed don’t need to be worried. There are ICDL Introductory Programmes which have been designed to address the needs of those who have no previous experience of computers, building a level of digital awareness among candidates and giving them the confidence to continue on the path to achieving digital literacy.
The introductory courses take around 16 – 70 hours to complete after which the candidate is given a certificate and can advance to the next level.Students with ICT skills enjoy an enriched educational experience and will be better prepared for life, work, and further learning. ICT skills enable teachers to use technology more effectively in the teaching process, thus achieving educational goals more efficiently, and in doing so save time and increase productivity in the classroom.
After taking ICDL classes millennials are able to be absorbed into various job markets which has in turn brought together organisations from the public and private sectors that are working to tackle issues around disinformation. Businesses are employing artificial intelligence to streamline workflows and supply chains. This is therefore a huge advantage for the millennials undertaking ICDL as it may be a step in advancing their respective careers.
