CETL Exam Administration

Tests will be scheduled individually at a nearby Prometric testing center. More information coming soon.

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.

There are two parts to the exam: Part I is a multiple-choice exam administered at proctored test sites (please contact CoSN for information on hosting an exam). Part II is essay based; this is not proctored and may be completed using your own computer (submission instructions and the deadline will be provided via email). Essays are graded by a panel of trained subject matter experts. The exam fee includes both parts of the exam, but only part one is administered at this sitting.

Candidates must have a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree plus four years of education technology experience. Education technology experience is defined as demonstrable experience in the three overarching skill areas of the Framework of Essential Skills of the K-12 CTO. If candidates do not meet the minimum education requirements, they must have at least seven years of demonstrable experience. Additional consideration will be given based on professional development and certifications. Additional information on this process is here.
