  • ECDL for Public Sector

    ECDL programmes in public administration sector have also a significant progress in Romania. The importance of introducing the ECDL in Romania was noticed by governmental authorities.
    In Government Resolution 1007/2001 regarding the preparation of public office workers as users of informational technology, the following things are referred to:  “The instruction and improvement courses will follow the ECDL model, which has been adopted as standard by governments of many countries. The Ministry of Education and Research has to recommend this approach to all technical profiled high-schools; ECDL was recommended to all the EU member states, as standard certification for the basic qualification in using the computer. The courses will consist mostly of actual practice on the computer and will require proper structures throughout the country. Centers with computer laboratories for the ECDL instruction and certification will be founded in all residence towns, in many high-schools as well as in University departments. The first stage of the program will involve approximately 250,000 public servants.”
