computer know-how / computer skills


Explanation:
EDV = EDP = electronic data processing.
However, EDV has been accepted as the next to generic term for "computer" in German, meaning that EDV Kenntnisse does not necessarily refer to data processing, which is skilled work in the sense of data manipulation and management. Rather it refers to general computer skills, as you have suggested yourself. A viable alternative is computer know-how.
