ICDL Foundation signed an Memorandum of Understanding with Korea Productivity Center for collaboration to develop, promote and implement a Computing Certification Programme and to facilitate the co-operation between Korean universities and international schools.
Hong Soon-Jik, President of Productivity Center said, "The Korean Productivity Centre has been setting the standard for IT evaluation testing in Korea and this effort is expanding to the global level. By jointly developing evaluation standards for the coding module, it will contribute to nurturing the necessary talent needed in the country."
