At the same time, since 2018 the UAT has also implemented a strategy of teacher training and specialization to develop digital competencies for teaching. After 3 years, it has managed to certify a total of 480 university professors in the different international certifications offered at the Test Centre. This institutional effort, allowed facilitating the transition of teachers from face-to-face education to education through digital media, derived from the COVID-19 pandemic where all Higher Education Institutions (HEI) had to implement synchronous and asynchronous communication, collaboration techniques and strategies supported by technological applications in order to meet the demands of educational services of undergraduate and graduate students around the world.
The Accredited ICDL Test Centre is coordinated by the Department of Distance Education, under the Academic Secretariat of the UAT, . currently managing initiatives at the Victoria and Tampico sites Campus (Central and South Zone).
UAT as ICDL Accredited Test Centre has national and international recognition in training human capital specialized in digital skills internally and for other institutions, for example staff of the United Nations (UN) have been certified in digital skills here.
