Digital Citizen Plus is specially developed as an introduction to the ICDL Base Modules, to cater for candidates who have very little experience of computers and the Internet. Digital Citizen Plus helps to remove the fear of using a computer for beginners by using a simple, non-threatening approach to educating individuals in the basic skills of using a computer, email and the Internet.

• It is a fun, informal and uncomplicated introduction to computers and the Internet for beginners.
• It is designed to establish a basic understanding of computers and the Internet. 
• It is designed to build confidence and provide a basis to encourage further exploration and development of computer and Internet skills in the ICDL Base Modules.


Digital Citizen Plus is designed for beginners and is open to everyone regardless of status, education, age, ability or understanding. There are many people who have very little exposure to computers or the Internet. Many of these people would like to build on what they know already, but need a stepping stone to the ICDL Base Modules. If that sounds like someone you know, Digital Citizen Plus is the programme for them to build their confidence level, before progressing on their path to achieving digital literacy. 


The syllabus sets out the specific knowledge and skills that make up this programme, as informed by input from subject matter experts from a wide range of computer societies and organisations.

Please note that the Digital Citizen Plus module is also known as Intro to ICDL Base.
