The increase of personal information culture acquires particular importance in the information society, which is undergoing significant transformations under the conditions of constantly improving informative interaction technologies. This article aims to identify the primary skills in using information technology as a basis for the formation of informational culture. Methodology. We used a method of statistical analysis to assess information technology skills according to the OECD classification (2022): 1) basic process skills (critical thinking, active learning, learning strategies, monitoring); 2) integrated problem solving; 3) technical skills (equipment selection, equipment installation, equipment support, troubleshooting, repairing); 4) system skills (judgment and decision-making, system analysis, and system evaluation). Results. These skills determine the ability to use technology and influence information culture formation. IT and information handling skills can be divided into operational, formal, informational and strategic, involving technical and cognitive ability to use technology. The deficit of basic process skills and system skills, directly related to the ability of complex problem solving, was revealed. At the same time, the article found no deficit or excess of technical skills in using technology and their lack of influence on complex problem-solving. Employees have a sufficient level of skills to select, install, support, repair, troubleshoot equipment with the need to develop critical thinking, the skill to solve complex problems, analyze and evaluate the situation comprehensively.
