How do I enroll in an online TESOL/TEFL course, and are there specific start dates? When does the course deadline begin?

You may enroll at any time using our secure registration form at registration and payment, the online TESOL / TEFL course will be activated within 24 business hours and OnTESOL will send you the Course Activation e-mail and a separate e-mail with your receipt. 

During registration, you can choose the TESOL / TEFL course you want to take, add up to four (4) specialists (75% OFF each specialist during TESOL/TEFL enrollment), add the 10-hour Live Lesson Planning Workshop, and follow the instructions on the screen to complete your registration and payment. 

The Start Date and End Date are included in the Course Activation e-mail. The Start Date is the day the Course Activation email is sent and the course deadline is 6 months (120-hour TESOL) or 8 months (168-hour TEFL and 250-hour TESOL) from the Start Date. During this time, you will have access to view materials online or download them as you progress through each module one at a time. You will also have access to your tutor for questions about the materials, clarification on assignment instructions, or feedback on a previous assignment. Even if you do not login at any point during the course, your Start Date and End Date will remain the same. If you do not receive your Course Activation e-mail within 24 business hours, please check your spam folder or send us a message through our Contact Us form

Students who add the 10-hour Live Lesson Planning Workshop to their TESOL course or register in the TEFL course, will have access to each session when they reach the respective assignment in the online TESOL / TEFL course. 

Those opting for one or more specialist courses will gain access to them sequentially, following the completion of their core online TESOL/TEFL course.
