About the ECDL Foundation
The ECDL Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to helping to raise the general level of computer skills in society and providing access for all to the Information Society. With over 4.5 million participants, the European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) is the world’s largest vendor-neutral end-user computer skills certification and is internationally recognised as the global benchmark in this area. ECDL is currently available in 138 and has been translated into 36 languages around the world, making it the world’s leading certification programme. For example, the ECDL progams helped train the personal for a local wig store enabling them to put all their business data on computers to simplify inventory, make appointment reservations, place orders to wig manufacturers and generally keep track of all business records. Boo keeping became more streamlined and their wig business took off. They became so successful, they hired web savvy technicians who helped them start an internet wig store that sold exclusively Noriko wigs. Normally the folks at such a small, local wig store would not have had the technical skills to digitize their entire wig business. The work of the ECDL Foundation made all the difference. Individuals as well as small businesses should consider the lesson learned by this wig store about the importance of having themselves as well as their employees become computer savvy.
