Louisville, Kentucky, United States
As a Computer Applications/Digital Literacy high school teacher, I feel that it is important to be certified in what you teach. Our district had a big push to get IC3 as our standard. Students can see my certification hanging on the wall and I put copies of past students’ certifications on the wall as well as an encouragement tool for current students.
I recommend this certification to students so they will stand out in a pool of applicants for a job. I would also encourage them to look for the IC3 certification when hiring people.

My name is Tiffani and I found about IC3 through Work One. I was on food stamps and medicaid and I wanted to be off of this government help. My father has always worked on computers so I have followed in his footsteps. This course has made me more confident in the workforce and in my life! I feel like I have what it takes to finally be someone for my son and my husband. And finally something to be proud of!
I would recommend IC3 because the class is fun and you learn more than just how to open a program. You learn the fundamentals and mechanics of how computers and programs work.

I acquired my IC3 certification about 2 months ago, while in my advanced computer apps class. I was dedicated to get my certification for 2 reasons. 1 – it was required for my class, and 2 – I was aware of the benefits to my career. This certification will help me with a job in the future, and will go on my resume.
I would recommend it to anyone who is wanting a great certification on their resume, and/or someone who wants to test, and better their skills with computers.

The IC3 certification has helped my education in keeping me up-to-date with technologies of today’s world. This year our school implemented a class in which a small group of students shadow the school technicians, as part of their curriculum, we implemented IC3. In this class, I train the students and create lessons based on the IC3 Certification. IC3 helps the students relate to technical issues of real-world situations.
I highly recommend the IC3 Certification to the educational field, not only because of the knowledge and experience the students can acquire from this certification, but also because it gives the students a step-up in their careers. I also recommend the IC3 certification because of today’s global changing society, IC3 can surely help influence students to consider a technology field of study.

Every computer based experience I have had since my gaining my IC3 certificate has been blissful. This course, which is laid out by Certiport, is formed around real life situational experiences, and has helped me excel in the legal office I am currently employed. For example, I am now the go to tech guy around the office, having assisted many of my co-workers with Word, Excel, and PowerPoint related questions, and having even fixed a printer.
I know the education gained from the Certiport IC3 certification will continue to help me for as long as I am associated with computers. With the cemented use of computers in all of our lives, we need to get to know the basic technical and logistical operations of computers and their corresponding devices . For this reason, I would recommend to all to work toward acquiring this IC3 certificate, which gives you that knowledge and computer savvy.

I had never heard of IC3 until I began to teach an Advanced Computer Applications class at my high school. We decided that we would offer IC3 and MOS certifications to students beginning three years ago. Because I was unfamiliar with the program, I decided to begin by getting certified. Since then, I have certified in GS3 and GS4. In the past three years, we have certified approximately 75 students at the school and hope to have many more.
IC3 certification is a great way to show employers that you have in-depth, overall knowledge of computing topics and can help employees advance in their careers or find a new one. I recommend the certification to students because many colleges and universities are also accepting this as credit.

Obtaining my IC3 certification felt like I made the first major step toward my education. I am nervous, to say the least, about my future as a computer science major. I want to excel, and I like to surprise myself. Thanks to Certiport, I have been inspired to push myself to obtain more certifications and to learn as much as possible. Overall, I benefited from receiving my IC3 certification by walking away with the confidence that I could succeed.
I have and would recommended IC3 Digital Literacy to anyone who uses a computer. I strongly believe anyone can benefit from obtaining this certification, whether it be a new user or an experienced operator. I have learned many shortcuts and skills which have aided my collegiate experience in a number of classes ranging from computer graphics to psychology. IC3 has been immensely helpful to me.

Age Of Technology
IC3 enlightened my career path towards technology! It really helped make the decision on the education I truly wanted in computer science. At first, I really didn’t know what career I wanted to pursue, so I was lost. But then my teacher introduced me to IC3. After being certified, I now have a clear picture of what career I want to chase. Now I display my certification on my resume very proudly!
IC3 is an amazing benefit and a great head start towards your technology path! If you’re very interested in pursuing a technology career, then I highly recommend it. It helps you prepare for the technology ethics, in the business aspect. It molds out a standard towards your knowledge in technology which is a big advantage!

I have used my IC3 certification for the whole job process. When my employer asks if I have any awards or certifications, I tell them about IC3 and passing all three exams on the first try. Their eyes light up with interest and tell me that they appreciate someone with literacy in computer systems and that they admire my education. I have always enjoyed using the computer for educational purposes, and cannot see myself without one in the future.
I definitely have talked about my certification with my cousins, since they know how to operate a computer or laptop. When they don’t know how to do something, for example, deleting a program or game from the system. They would ask me and then tell me I’m so smart. They make me giggle, so I would take that opportunity to discuss IC3 with them. The knowledge provided by IC3 is great for the young ones, because it’s part of our daily lives.

My IC3 Digital Literacy Certification, particularly the Computing Fundamentals and Key Applications exams, has helped me to improve my soft skills, and strengthened my professional portfolio. I am now better prepared to practically operate and maintain any computer. I know that the IC3 certification will help me reach my goals and get that future dream job.
I tell all of my friends about my experience with IC3 and the practical skills of the full certification. I want to help upgrade my friends’ digital literacy skills so they will earn great job offers too.

As of right now, I am just a high school stundent, but my goal is to graduate and get accepted to a top college. This will be no easy task and will take hard work and dedication. The IC3 certification shows that I have the dedication to go that extra mile and to put in that extra effort that others may not have. It has helped me to lay a foundation for the rest of my studies and helped me complete tasks more quickly than my classmates.
I would recommend the IC3 certification to everyone who plans to use a computer for school or work. This certification not only adds to the value of a student or employee, but represents a drive that is not found in everyone.
