All the course material is online. You will be able to read the material online, and download the material if you so wish to.

TEFL / TESOL Certification Programs:


- 100-hour TESOL Certificate Course:
A 100-hour certificate is considered as the international standard for TESOL/TEFL certification. Ontesol`s 100-hour TESOL Certificate - Certificate of Educational Studies in TESOL provides graduates with the credentials to work anywhere in Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America.

Since no two people work at the same pace, or have identical commitments and study time, a 100-hour Certificate program may take from 3 to 11 weeks to complete. The maximum time given to complete this course is 3 months. Graduates from the 100-hour TESOL course who wish to gain valuable teaching experience may take the 20-hour Practicum anywhere in the world.

- 250-hour TESOL Diploma Course:

Ontesol's 250-hour online course with optional Practicum is an extended version of Coventry House International's on-site Trinity CertTESOL and TESL Canada course. You can obtain all the benefits of an advanced on-site course from the comfort of your home and choose to take the teaching practice module anywhere in the world.

Depending on the pace you work at or the study time you have available to you, this program may take from 8 to 24 weeks to complete.

- 60-hour TEYL Certificate (Teaching English to Young Learners) Course:

The TEYL (Teaching English to Young Learners) Certificate course is a 60-hour online course which must be completed in a period of 8 weeks. It has been carefully developed to address the needs of young learners. For the TEYL Certificate program the overall aim is to develop skills and confidence in working with young learners, familiarize with the approach that best suit children’s learning styles as well as adding an invaluable bonus to your CV or résumé and network with other TESOL graduates.

Practicum (Teaching Practice):

Teaching practice is very important for you to feel more confident especially when you are new to the ESL/ESOL field. Employers prefer new graduates to have some teaching experience after graduating from a TESOL course. Most importantly, if you are taking our 250-hour TESOL course, the 20-hour practicum is compulsory to obtain TESL Canada's accreditation. The 20-hour Practicum can be completed at any TESL Canada centre that offers the Stand-Alone Practicum or at any ESL school in the world with the help of a qualified supervisor.

Free Job Placement Assistance:
Ontesol graduates receive free job placement assistance. Through our extended network of schools and recruiters, we have helped thousands of graduates to obtain a great teaching position for free.
