TEFL Certificate Courses

In order to meet current market trends, CESL Teacher Training Program offers the option to complete a either a 100-hour or a 150-hour TEFL certificate. Students who desire to obtain a 100-hour TEFL Certificate can take the 100-hour Intensive TEFL course that lasts 4 weeks or two 50-hour online courses. Students who wish to obtain a 150-hour Certificate should take three 50-hour online courses.

Furthermore, students can supplement the 100-hour or 150-hour TEFL Certificate with a 20- or 40-hour Practicum, which provides with the opportunity to have classroom teaching experience under the supervision of a CESL faculty member. Please visit the Combining Hours page for more information about these options.
