Get TEFL/TESOL Certified Online

If you are applying for a Public School job, this certificate will qualify you for a higher pay bracket, as well as make you a more attractive, competitive candidate. Why not increase your chances of being hired and at the same time, guarantee yourself a better salary? Remember that for EPIK Public School positions, you must complete the program before your teaching contract/semester starts. We strongly recommend that all EPIK Public School applicants get a TESOL/TEFL certification.

If you are applying for a Private School job, a TEFL/TESOL certificate tells employers that you are serious about a position and dedicated to the ESL teaching field. We suggest that our teachers get a certificate before the school semester starts, so you can get a higher salary starting at the beginning of your contract. However, if you finish the course during the semester, your pay will be raised from the month you submitted your certificate. There are many TESOL/TEFL programs out there, but we recommend this 120 Hour TESOL/ITTT course to you.
