European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) Extra (Workshop/Online) - Bridgwater & Taunton College

Course Overview

This is the next step of the ECDL qualification and would be of interest to those who work with computers but don’t have any formal qualifications or for those who wish to extend their knowledge. Ideal for those who are unable to commit to regular weekly attendance or who wish to work at home or online, as this is possible with attendance at the College for assessments.

Ideal for those progressing from the ECDL Essentials Level 1 qualification but not essential. This course includes:

  • Word processing
  • Presentations
  • Spreadsheets
  • Improving productivity

The learning materials can be accessed from any PC with internet access or learners can attend any of our workshops to use our resources to work through them with support from the workshop staff.

Assessment Methods

An exam either using simulation software or in-house for each of the modules, lots of practice, with a number of resit opportunities if needed.

Progression Options

Many leaners have built so much confidence that they progress to the next course – ECDL Essentials at Level 1, enabling them to gain the full ECDL qualification. If already achieved the next progression would be ECDL Advanced at Level 3.

  • ECDL database module at Level 2
  • Then ECDL Advanced at Level 3
