As you may know the ICDL Syllabus (SV5.0) is organized into 7 modules and each has a Certification Test. The Canadian SV 5.0 tests and training material are available in reflections of Windows and Office (M2 in Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 and M3 through M7 in Office 2007 – M1 is a basic knowledge module).
Although the tests each have a time limit of 45 minutes each, the average time taken is under 20 minutes. You can do the tests in any order.
In the Custom Testing Program you would be doing the tests by appointment with a Proctor at the ICDL Canada designated institution. Upon registration and receipt of full payment we proceed to set up your custom testing service in a community near you.
The normal individual testing service fee is $400 before your CIPS Member discount.
There are self-paced study resources available. One option, localized for use in Canada, is the CiA Training 7 book set ($81 plus shipping) that includes data file access for the exercises.
As an option and once you are registered, we can also provide diagnostic tests which you can do yourself on-line without supervision. Good news – we are currently including one diagnostic test free of charge for each registrant.
In Canada registered candidates can access the results of all tests through their personal on-line testing account.
