    Competency Task List

    The Competency Task List, issued by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE), is a detailed list of the skills students must learn in each program of study.  When a student masters a competency task, the program instructor certifies this by placing their initials next to the task in the student’s Competency Task List Booklet.  This booklet is provided to each CTE student during the first year of the program.  The CTE instructor uses this booklet to keep track of the student’s progress.

    See the Information Technology Competency Task List.


    Students who are successful in the Information Technology program have the opportunity to earn FREE college credits, as part of this program of study.
