ICDL has been mentioned as a reference standard for the certification of digital competences in the Romanian National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP). The endorsement highlights that digitalisation remains a priority, with many reforms and extensive digital skills development projects being included in the plan. At least 30,000 civil servants, 100,000 teachers, 1,100 librarians and 100,000 members of the public will benefit from the initiatives.
In addition to the endorsement in the NRRP, ICDL has formal recognition in the Romanian education system and civil service. Civil servants must prove their digital skills with ICDL certification and teachers can use ICDL to gain professional development credits.
