Rix’s Ajay passes the ECDL with top marks

Many congratulations to Ajay Choksi at Rix Research & Media, who has passed the European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) skills certification programme with top marks.

Ajay works as a technical assistant and Wiki Master at Rix and is an invaluable member of the team.  Rix is based in Knowledge Dock and specialises in exploring and developing new media technologies to improve the lives of people with learning disabilities.  Ajay has communication difficulties himself, which makes his achievement all the more fantastic.

His scores for the ECDL were highly impressive, with an average score of over 83% and scores for the component parts as:

  • Powerpoint – 86%
  • Microsoft Office – 80%
  • Excel – 80%
  • Access database – 91%
  • Project Management – 79%

The ECDL certification is a highly recognised qualification and is the fastest growing IT user qualification in over 125 countries, with many UK companies setting the ECDL as a mandatory requirement.

AjayECDLEveryone at Rix Research & Media is so proud of Ajay.  Gosia Kwiatkowska, Research Centre Manager, said:

“Ajay set himself a goal early this year to complete the ECDL course as part of his continuous staff development efforts. He worked extremely hard and with the excellent support from the UEL ECDL team he was able to achieve his goal. We are so proud of him and his achievement.”

Ajay received his certificate from Vice-Chancellor of UEL, Professor John Joughin, at a presentation in UEL’s Great Hall in Stratford on Wednesday.

Ajay said:

“I am really happy with my results from the ECDL course. I felt very emotional when I received the certificate from our Vice-Chancellor. I am so proud of myself”
