IT Certification and Digital Skills

Today’s businesses need to harness both technology and talent to drive productivity and growth through digital transformation. Effective IT skills assessment has a critical role to play in ensuring that organisations can continue to build the workforce they need to support their digital ambitions.


In the field of both vendor certification programmes and vendor-neutral qualifications, PSI is pre-eminent in delivering performance-based testing that truly demonstrates a candidate’s knowledge, skills and competencies. Our trusted technology platforms and multi-modal delivery options enable our clients to deliver high-stakes certification tests to candidates anywhere, anytime, whilst complying with international security standards.

Performance Based Testing: A Truer Test of Skills

When assessing any IT related disciplines, it’s essential to ensure candidates can demonstrate specific skills rather than simply recalling knowledge. By providing innovative performance-based tests that accurately mirror a workplace environment, you can deliver assessments that assess skills through tasks that are meaningful, challenging and engaging for candidates.

With an unrivalled experience in eAssessment across all areas of digital skills including IT certification, computer literacy and information literacy, PSI is a pioneer in performance-based testing. Through our uniquely effective in-application testing, candidates are tested by completing tasks in live applications, thus providing a much clearer demonstration of job competency.

We deliver large-scale programmes with truly global reach across all areas of digital testing, which are used by the world’s top IT certification partners.

Established and successful programmes from institutions such as the European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) Foundation and BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT in the UK, have partnered with PSI to develop and certify computer skills for millions of candidates worldwide.

As well as our unique in-application item types, we have deployed technologies such as virtualised test environments which allow even the most complex system desktops to be accessed with BYOD (bring your own device) test-taking capability.

Our remote proctoring platform, PSI Bridge, is also optimised for the delivery of digital skills programmes, allowing as it does, access to approved applications and supporting digital content, even within a secure browser environment.
