CETL® stands for Certified Education Technology Leader and represents the highest standards of excellence in the education technology industry. The CETL® certification eligibility requirements, exam topics, and recertification requirements are based on The Framework of Essential Skills of the K-12 CTO, representing the competencies critical to today’s education technology leaders. The Framework, which was created and is kept up-to-date by two volunteer panels of education technology leaders, is divided into three primary areas:

  • Leadership and Vision
  • Understanding the Educational Environment
  • Managing Technology and Support Resources
