Vocational education certificates
The Pennsylvania School Code bill, enacted along with the state budget in July, gives Career and Technical Education professionals two additional years to get enough credits for Vocational II certification – eight years instead of the six-year requirement under the old law. As the Department of Education works through its implementation plan,
PSEA will continue to monitor this issue and update members on the latest developments.
