More University Staff Accelerate
their Computer Skills with ECDL

Twenty six members of the university staff who successfully completed the European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) programme between November 2002 and September 2003, were recently presented with ECDL certificates.

University staff completed the ECDL programme after following a series of computer courses and successfully passing seven standard ECDL tests. The programme was organised by the Computing Services Centre (CSC) in collaboration with the Further Training/Work Resources Committee (Administrative & Technical Staff).

During the presentation ceremony, Professor Josef Lauri, chairman of the CSC Committee, congratulated all staff for their efforts and achievement. He showed his appreciation particularly because members of staff are committing themselves to attend courses after working hours.

Professor Lauri also thanked Mr. Albert Attard, chairman of the Further Training/Work Resources Committee, for organising courses for university administrative and technical staff. He also acknowledged the work of Mr. James Cilia, ECDL Test Centre Manager and administrative/support staff at CSC for managing the ECDL programme at the University of Malta.

Members of Staff Awarded the ECDL Certificate were: Lynne Agius, Sharon Agius, Charlene Bonnici, Catherine Brincat, Amanda Buttigieg, Karen Cacciattolo, Erika Chircop, Christopher Ciantar, Anika Debono, Anika Farrugia, Isabelle Farrugia, Mary Farrugia, Clive Ferrante, Elizabeth Formosa, Allison Grima, Priscilla Grima, Claire Harrison, Therese Kuymizakis, Ramona Lauro, Elaine Mangion, Marthese Micallef, Joseph Scicluna, Joel Spiteri, Jo-Anne Stivala, Shelley Anne Vassallo and Doris Wright.

Other members of staff and university students are at various stages of the ECDL programme.
