ECDL AdvancedĀ is the logical progression for candidates who have achieved the ECDL Standard certificate and who wish to further enhance their ICT skills and to demonstrate their competence in using a computer at a higher level. The ECDL Advanced modules give candidates the opportunity to become expert in the use of these applications, acquiring skills sets over and above the routine features of the software.

The ECDL Advanced consists of four Modules:

  • Advanced Word Processing
  • Advanced Spreadsheets
  • Advanced Database
  • Advanced Presentation
ECDL Advanced Training


  • Basic understanding and use of English Grammar
  • ECDL Standard Certificate would be ideal but not necessary

ECDL Advanced candidates can demonstrate that they are:

  • Organised and efficient
  • More productive
  • Capable of confidently exploiting the full potential of the applications
  • Expert at producing attractive, professional-quality outputs
