The International Computer Driving Licence (ICDL) is a global programme aiming at raising the general level of competence in IT in all sectors of the society and, therefore, promoting life-long e-learning.  The programme's main objective is to establish a benchmark for basic computer skills giving the opportunity for the Arab population to effectively join the new information age and consequently leading to fulfilling the ultimate objective of computer literacy. The ICDL concept is owned by the ICDL/ECDL Foundation, which is a non-profit organization based in Dublin, Ireland.

The Foundation was formed to coordinate the introduction and cooperation of the ICDL/ECDL Concept throughout the world through a network of licencees.

UNESCO is the ICDL principle in several countries including Iraq. The ICDL has become a widely recognized qualification in both personal and work-related computer use. The Programme is currently featured in over 120 countries worldwide and offered in more than 25 languages.
 

In 2004, the number of registrants in the qualification exceeded the 4.6 million mark, representing the delivery of over 15 million tests, and the number of certified accredited test centers has exceeded 17,000.
