IC3 Digital Literacy allows candidates to demonstrate their ability to select and use the appropriate research, productivity, collaboration, and communications tools, to find reliable information, create content, communicate safely, and identify credibility and bias in modern digital environments.

The new exam structure is a comprehensive set of stackable certifications across seven digital literacy domains. It is composed of three exams, each awarding its own certificate, that validate an understanding of each domain at the basic, intermediate, and advanced levels.

Level 1 certifies candidates KNOW foundational concepts related to the seven key competency areas.
Level 2 certifies candidates’ ability to DO tasks that demonstrate their skills in working productively in an online environment
