GS6 Certification

GS6 is a comprehensive set of stackable certifications across seven digital literacy domains. It is comprised of three exams, each awarding its own certificate, that validate an understanding of each domain at the basic, intermediate, and advanced levels. 

  • GS6 Level 1 measures knowledge of fundamental concepts and essential components.
  • GS6 Level 2 requires a working knowledge of each of the seven skill groups. 
  • GS6 Level 3 validates an advanced understanding of digital literacy and indicates that the candidate has the technical foundation needed to advance successfully along their educational and employment paths and support the development of more specialized technological skills. 

When a candidate successfully passes all three Global Standard Six certification exams, they are awarded the IC3 Digital Literacy Master Certification and a Master Badge which display an advanced understanding of the concepts and principles within the IC3 Digital Literacy program objective domains.
