Set yourself apart and teach almost anywhere in the world with a TESOL certificate from TESOL International Association, the globally recognized and trusted provider of professional learning in English language teaching (ELT).

The TESOL Core Certificate Program (TCCP) is aligned to TESOL’s Standards for Short-Term TEFL/TESL Certificate Programs and was developed by experts in the TESOL field. Gain foundational knowledge in ELT theory and practice, focus your skills on teaching adult or young learners, and apply what you’ve learned through an in-person or virtual teaching practicum.

The TESOL Core Certificate Program (TCCP) is a 140-hour blended-learning program, meaning that a portion of the program is completed online and a portion of the program is completed in person. To earn the TESOL Core Certificate, participants must successfully complete three parts:
  • 60-hour (6-week) online, instructor-led foundation course on the fundamentals of TESOL
  • 60-hour (6-week) online, instructor-led specialty course on teaching adults or young learners (choose one)
  • 20-hour teaching practicum 
    • 10 hours of in-person or virtual classroom observation
    • 10 hours of in-person or virtual practice teaching
    • Submission of two 15-minute videos
