Washington, DC (April 24, 2013) – To commemorate the first anniversary of the Certified Education Technology Leader (CETL)™ Certification Program, the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) is offering special pricing options for interested program participants, including reduced exam fees and bulk discounts for exam preparatory materials. Open to all qualified K-12 chief technology officers (CTOs), the CETL program provides participants with an opportunity to obtain the skills and knowledge needed to build transformative learning environments.

“School technology leaders are in a position to take K-12 education to new heights, but only if they gain the necessary professional development skills and qualifications,” said Keith Krueger, CEO of CoSN. “We strongly encourage CTOs to enroll in the affordable, accredited CETL program, so they can acquire and demonstrate that they possess the know-how to maximize the use of technology to enhance teaching and learning.”

Based on the Framework of Essential Skills of the K-12 CTO, the CETL program is designed for CTOs to show that they understand today’s educational environment, how technology enhances a student’s learning experiences and the role district technology leaders play in their districts’ long-term strategic and operational goals. Participants achieve CETL designation through an administered two-part exam. Those who pass the exam’s first part, which is multiple-choice, are eligible for the second part, which is essay-based. To follow is the upcoming CETL exam schedule:

  • April 30 in Welches, OR
  • May 7 in Lancaster, PA

Exam applications and fees must be submitted no later than seven days prior to the test date.

The CETL program is overseen by the Certification Governance Committee – a volunteer group of subject matter experts with a combined total of more than 160 years of experience in education technology. Sponsorship support for CETL is provided by Education Networks of America (ENA), www.ena.com

Complete CETL program information, including all special pricing options and relevant resources, is available at: www.cosn.org/certification.
