This computer literacy course will teach you how to efficiently, effectively, and safely succeed in any environment that requires the use of computers, devices, or the Internet. The IC3 Digital Literacy Global Standard Six (GS6) certification is developed and administered by Certiport and designed to cover a range of concepts and skills that can apply to almost any school or career pathway, making it an ideal credential to validate your digital skills.
The IC3 GS6 certification program consists of three exams (Level 1-3) that cover the following objective domains in increasing detail and complexity: Technology Basics, Digital Citizenship, Information Management, Content Creation, Communication, Collaboration, and Safety & Security. This comprehensive set of certifications are stackable across seven digital literacy domains. They will validate your understanding of each domain at the basic, intermediate, and advanced levels, each awarding its own certificate. The IC3-GS6 Levels 1, 2, and 3 sections are structured to align 100% with the IC3 GS6 learning objectives—with no prior computer knowledge or skills needed.
This IC3 certification course is prescriptive and competency-based, meaning that pre-assessment results are mapped to the course table of contents. The "Custom Path" feature allows you to streamline the training process by skipping course lessons and exercises that correspond to skills or concepts passed in the pre-assessment—ensuring a personalized learning experience that is tailored to your needs and abilities.
Upon successfully passing all three Global Standard Six certification exams, you will be awarded the IC3 Digital Literacy Master Certification and a Master Badge. This demonstrates an advanced understanding of the concepts and principles within the IC3 Digital Literacy program objective domains and validates your digital skills in a wide range of settings, from educational institutions to various career paths.
