ECDL certificates awarded

The ECDL (European Computer Driving Licence) training for 20 unemployed women residing in the Region of Istria who are over 40 years of age began by the end of February 2008 in Pula, within the planned project activities. This activity was included into the project because it had been established that computer illiteracy represented a serious obstacle to successful employment and it is believed that this possibility to obtain ECDL certification recognised throughout Europe, free of charge, significantly improved their position on the employment market.

The office of the assistant to the project, further to a partnership agreement, was held by the Croatian Employment Service – Branch office in Pula, which selected the participants, secured daily attendance allowances for the time of duration of the training and covered the travelling costs.

The training was concluded by the beginning of May and the students were awarded their ECDL certificates today in IDA’s offices.
