Department of Career & Technical Studies

PSEA's Department of Career and Technical Studies (DCTS) identifies and addresses the concerns and issues which affect the professions of educators in these disciplines.

The DCTS executive board includes representatives from PSEA regions as well as the seven sections of Career and Technical Education: Agriculture Education, Business Education, Distributive Education, Health Occupations, Family and Consumer Science, Technology Education, and Trade/Industrial Education.

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.
