ACPE and CoSN are working together to develop leadership capacity within our membership

Certified Education Technology Leader (CETL)™
For K-12 education technology leaders, earning the CETL certification will demonstrate to your staff, superintendent and other stakeholders that you have mastered the knowledge and skills needed to define the vision for and successfully build 21st-century learning environments in your school district.

The CETL certification exam is based on The Framework of Essential Skills of the K-12 CTO, which is the body of knowledge defining the skill areas critical to today’s education technology leaders. The Framework is divided into three primary areas:
  • Leadership & Vision
  • Understanding the Educational Environment
  • Managing Technology & Support Resources
Under each of these areas, the Framework further identifies specific responsibilities and the knowledge needed to perform these responsibilities in order to be a successful CTO in today’s educational environment. The CETL examination is aligned directly with the Framework.
