Specto, the ICDL operator in Jordan, will offer ICDL certification at six refugee centres in the country after winning a public tender from the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC). The tender called for a ‘Framework Agreement for Provision of International Accreditation for Recognized Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Digital Literacy Qualification’.
ICDL will be available at Zaatari Rerugee Camp, two locations in Azraq refugee camps, and three centres in Jordan’s Northern Host Governates. Specto will offer Windows, MS Office (Basic and Advanced), Internet, e-mail, Web editing, and Image Editing. NRC will have the option to implement other modules or courses from Specto’s range. NRC expects to train and certify 600 new candidates in 2020.
Specto and NRC have collaborated for more than 5 years so far, with over 2,100 candidates becoming ICDL certified in that time.
