ICDL, formerly known as ECDL, is now free on fetchcourses.ie to support those affected by the ongoing Covid-19 crisis.
Working in partnership with SOLAS, the Further Education and Training Authority, ICDL resources have been made available for free on the SOLAS online learning service as a support to learners who have been impacted by the current containment measures.
Students can now access 10 ICDL courses for free including:
Registering for your course
ICDL is funded and delivered online through Solas eCollege.
Anyone over 18 with a PPS number can access our courses. Here’s how to get started:
ICDL provides a great learning opportunity for individuals to upskill or reskill and be ready for when the current restrictions come to an end and businesses are operating normally.
ICDL is available online 24/7, so you can study at a time that suits you. While these are extremely difficult times we are living in, we hope that by making ICDL available we will help to support those whose livelihoods have been impacted by Covid-19 to re-enter or upskill in the labour market.
While courses are tutor supported, independent study is required to reach certification standards.
To create a fetchcourses.ie account and apply for eCollege courses, candidates will need an active email address and have details of their PPSN and postal address to hand.
