Image for story - 84 year old gains internationally recognised IT qualification with Best Training London South An 84 year old man from South London has completed his European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) course. Olabisi Olubodun, a retired Security Officer, is delighted to have gained the widely recognised qualification.

Mr Olubodun, who studied for his ECDL at Best Training London South says "It''s official - I am now digitally literate. I am very proud to have gained my ECDL. It took several attempts, but I got there in the end." He explains "I decided to take the course because I wanted to support others and work with young people, particularly in the field of numeracy where I have strong skills. I enjoyed learning about word processing and spread sheets, so much so, that I have decided to continue my studies and am now enrolled on a course in databases."Best Training London South is a registered examination centre with BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT. BCS is the only awarding body licensed to deliver ECDL in the UK.

Martyn Lambert, Chief Executive Officer of BCS Learning & Development Ltd, part of the Institute, says "This is great news and I hope that Mr Olubodun will inspire others to sign-up for the ECDL course at their local training centres. ECDL is the international standard in IT office skills and is widely recognised by employers as proof of competence when working with IT."

Jakub Olszewski, Manager, Best Training London South adds "Olabisi is an inspiration to our learners. After a 20 year break in learning, he went on to successfully complete ECDL and wants to continue his studies. His new skills are already being put to good use and he is now an important asset to the training centre - regularly offering support to our new recruits"
