Note it is a long time since I referenced the documentation I referenced
below and that was roughly how it was in the old days, my memory may be
fading, but that is no reason not to consider it.
IT department staff will gain little from their use of ECDL.
It is aimed at office staff who will need to be able to do such mundane
things as switch on a computer, use a word processor, spreadsheet, and
some class of db.
Its requirements are that you are able to do various tasks.
You could in theory if you can find such a place as is registered using
Linux to do it using such tools as you think best fit as long as they
are registered, so instead of ranting about it:
One catch syllabus :-), down load from an Internet near you.
Two design course to specification outlined in syllabus,
Three have course approved.
Four make money.
Exception Report: if you find that a part of the course is not generic
enough (i.e. requires a particular activity that is not available
outside a particular suite of data), report it to the syllabus people.
