TESOL Accreditation

Internationally Recognized Since 2003

TESOL certificate issued by TESL Canada

OnTESOL’s courses have been evaluated and accredited by two separate, independent accrediting bodies: The UK-based Accreditation for TESOL Distance Education Courses (ACTDEC) and TESL Canada. These organizations have scrutinized OnTESOL’s courses and given their official recognition of their veracity as teacher training programs. As a result, completion of Ontesol’s courses confers upon students an additional recognized status. In addition to receiving certification from Coventry House International-OnTESOL, graduates may apply for the appropriate certification from ACTDEC and TESL Canada (TESL Canada is equivalent to CELTA and Trinity CertTESOL worldwide).
