Czech Republic at the forefront of the digital revolution!

CertiCon a.s. is aware of the extraordinary social importance of educating the public in the safe and effective use of digital technologies. It has long supported the introduction and development of the non-profit international concept of digital literacy and digital competences ECDL/ICDL in the Czech Republic.

Prepare for the future!

The Czech Republic is becoming a pioneer in digital education and certification of digital competences. We are the first country in the world to allow candidates for internationally recognised ECDL/ICDL certificates to use artificial intelligence tools during the exams.

What can this mean for you?

  • You can get hands-on experience with state-of-the-art AI tools such as Microsoft Copilot, OpenAI ChatGPT, DALL-E, DeepL, Canva AI Image Generator, Decktopus AI, AlphaCode and more.
  • You can learn how to use these tools meaningfully, effectively and safely, both in your work and in your everyday civic life.
  • You’ll be better prepared for a future career that will be increasingly dependent on digital technologies and digital skills.

The first certification exams in the education sector using AI technologies will take place after the summer holidays this year.

Commercial training and certification centres will be able to offer them from May 2024 HERE.

Recognition of ECDL certificates in matriculation examinations

The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports (MoEYS) has extended the experimental verification of the recognition of international certificates of digital competences in matriculation examinations until 30 September 2025. This means that other schools wishing to offer this option to their students can apply until the end of June.
More information can be found HERE.

Why is this important?

Recognition of internationally valid certificates in matriculation examinations:

  • It will increase the standardisation and level of digital technology education.
  • Stimulates students to deepen their digital knowledge and skills.
  • It will improve the chances of school leavers to gain quality employment in the labour market.

ECDL/ICDL certificates are internationally recognised, so they can help open doors to better job opportunities almost anywhere in the world.

We are pleased that CertiCon can support a long-term international project that helps the general public to educate themselves not only in the field of artificial intelligence.

CertiCon a.s. participates in the development and operation of the national information system for ECDL testing WASET and provides complete economic and material support for the ECDL-CZ working group established at the Czech Society for Cybernetics and Informatics (CSCI), which is the quality guarantor and national authority of the ECDL concept in the Czech Republic.
