Progression to Level 1 and above Having achieved an Entry Level qualification, your option is to advance to the Level 1 course for which we offer ECDL Essentials. For Level 1 and above testing is a bit more formal and generally requires you to work without notes or handouts. Your teacher will discuss with you when you are ready to sit the tests so you can progress at your own pace within the hours available. ECDL Essentials Level 1 To help with the move into the more formal testing in ECDL, you will start with a six week “Preparing for ECDL” which are held at the same times as the full ECDL courses so there is no problem in switching days or times. Subject to agreement between you and your teacher you will then move into the formal course which lasts up to 65 hours. The “Preparing for…” course gives you a flying start to the formal course. Your progress can also be much faster if you choose to work using the online resources between class sessions. There are no set dates for testing as it is down to when you are ready. There are three units to be completed to gain the qualification. Details are on our website www.nelcls.ac.uk
