Roles Within an ATC

Print page


The Accredited Test Centre (ATC) manager is the first point of contact for ICDL Americas on any updates or feedback on the ICDL programme. They are responsible for managing all aspects of the ICDL programme within the ATC.


Trainers are responsible for delivering training that covers the ICDL syllabus. Trainers are expected to have extensive knowledge of the ICDL module content and have relevant experience in delivering training.

Accredited Tester

Accredited testers are responsible for supervising the testing sessions. ICDL Americas recommends that the Accredited Tester for a specific group of candidates should not be the same individual who has delivered the training.

To become an ICDL Accredited Tester, the individual must complete the ATC Tester application form, receive training and sign a code of conduct. If successful, they will receive an Accredited Tester Certificate which should be displayed in a prominent position within the ATC. They will also receive an ID card attached to a lanyard; this must be worn by each Accredited Tester when conducting a testing session. Each centre must nominate at least two Accredited Testers.
