    Hi Guys,

    Currently working towards the ECDL Part 2 with the intention of the ECDL Advanced. I know its not a great cert (or so I have been told). However, its something to add to a CV and gives me the ECDL Expert Cert. However, it also allows me to become an Associate of the The Chartered Institute for IT (formerly known as British Computer Society).

    As I said,from the advice I have received on the forum, the ECDL isnt that highly regarded. However, would ECDL Expert / Associate BCS member look OK on a CV? For the record, on completion I have have A.B.C.S after my name :dry

    Technicially speaking, it's currently branded "BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT". If you become an Associate, the postnominals would be AMBCS, not ABCS.

    The good thing that beign a member of a professional association (any) is the visable commitment that you follow a Code of Conduct, and that is only a good thing. Added to that the AMBCS is a stepping stone to the MBCS and that is the stepping stone for Chartered Status (unless you have the experience already, then you can go for MBCS or MBCS CITP directly).

    Once you finish the ECDL, you should be able to pass the Microsoft Office Specialist exams with little problem and the ECDL is the stepping stone to the A+.

    That's right :)

    Certifications: CITP, PGDip, BSc, HNC, LCGI, PTLLS, MCT, MCITP, MCTS, MCSE, MCSA:M, MCSA, MCDST, MCP, MTA, MCAS, MOS (Master), A+, N+, S+, ACA, VCA, etc... & 2nd Degree Black Belt
