Technology Director Endorsement

The endorsement program is an accredited program that leads to a K-12 Technology Director endorsement that attaches to a current Ohio teaching license. Candidates must complete the OAE exams (016 & 017) and must apply for endorsement through the Ohio Department of Education through OH/ID.

Technology Director Certificate

The certificate program prepares pre-service or in-service teachers to serve as district technology facilitators. It is not a Technology Director endorsement. The certificate does not require passing the OAE exams.
