The TESOL Program is Completely ONLINE
No Taxes Free Materials Free Consultation Low Tuition Fee
This Online Certification Program is designed for individuals who wish to pursue a career in Teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) to non-native English speakers. This program consists of 10 units of study that must be completed within six months. The program is structured through approximately 100 hours of online instructions and after the completion of all lesson assignments, students will have the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in a 20 hour teaching practicum.
Upon acceptance into the program, students will have direct access to their TESOL supervisor assigned by the CCE. Students will be provided all lesson assignment(s) and digital course components through direct e-mail. Students will be expected to purchase only the textbook (we will provide a link to purchase the textbook).
All interested applicants must have completed their senior matriculation (Grade 12) in Canada, or completed an undergraduate degree from an English-speaking university. Non-native English speakers must show proof of English Proficiency (please contact for details). This must be submitted to Canada College of Education upon your application and enrollment submission. Applicants who are accepted by the Canada College of Education without a University degree may not qualify for TESL Canada Level 1 Instructor Certification, but still can have their certificate from CCE.
My English is very good, but what if I DO NOT have proof of my English language proficiency like (IELTS, TOEFL, or other)?
At CCE we can perform our own assessment of your language proficiency. You can register for the TESOL certificate program at CCE upon passing the assessment (you must request the assessment), however, if you apply for official certification from TESL Canada, at then you will need to demonstrate to TESL Canada that you satisfy the language proficiency requirement by presenting official and current results from one of the exams listed on the chart. The language assessment performed by CCE will NOT qualify as meeting this language requirement for TESL Canada.
Please ensure that you have completed the following steps before applying for the program:
- Proof of Degree or Equivalency: You will need to provide us with proof of your qualifications (i.e., 1 copy of your diploma).
- Proof of identity: Please have one copy of photo identification (Driver’s license, Residency Card, Passport, Study permit, skill worker and … ) that is to be sent alongside your application
- Proof of English proficiency (applies to non-native English speakers only)
Please visit: www.tesl.ca for more information about the entrance requirements.
Since the TESOL Certification Program is offered completely online, students will not receive refunds of any partial manner once they have been accepted into the program. Likewise, if the student does not complete the program within 24 weeks (6 months) after they have been admitted into the program, the program will automatically be cancelled without any reimbursements. In such case, the student must register again and pay for the full program fees and start the program from the beginning.
All teacher trainees will have the option to teach at any recognized schools in Canada. It is the student’s responsibility to meet the job requirements of their selected institution. Students who live outside of Canada may also register for Canada College of Education’s TESOL Program, however the practicum must be completed in Canada.
Note: It is the sole responsibility of the student to find a school in their area for their Practicum (10 hours Observation + 10 hours Teaching) components.
Upon successful completion of the program, the trainee will receive a certificate of completion from CCE and it is recognized by TESL Canada. Then, if you like you can apply for Standard 1 TESL Certificate from TESL Canada (Verify it with TESL Canada TESL.ca).
