Successful completion of IC³ demonstrates that you have the knowledge and skills required for basic use of computer hardware, software, networks, and the Internet.
The Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) has adopted this certification as a requirement in several licensure-endorsement areas. Please visit MDE to verify whether IC³ is required or optional for your specific licensure requirement.
