Gain authentic experience by completing required teaching practicum in our live online ESL classrooms.




When considering a program to choose from, we know there are some basic questions that people want answered (hey, we were there ourselves at one time).  So to make it easy for you:


What would I be getting? - you would be receiving the highest quality training in the field of TESOL/TEFL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages / Teaching English as a Foreign Language).  In addition to the theory part of the different coursework, our programs require teaching practicum to graduate. Participants do not have to apply elsewhere to fulfill this requirement (like most other programs); they are placed directly in our live online-classrooms to fulfill practicum.  The best way to become confident in your skills is through actual experience and practice!

Is the program recognized? - Absolutely.  Our 60-hour TEFL certificate for Online Teaching, is recognized by employers across the globe.  

Is the program expensive? - While the cost varies depending on which program you take, our course prices are among the lowest available (both US and international). No, you won't find a Groupon for taking any of the courses for less than $15, but why spend money on an illegitimate program that 1) doesn't train you to be as successful as you can be, and 2) probably isn't recognized by serious employers. 

What are my job prospects if I take this program? - High! Because Promise Opens Doors works with a growing number of employer partners, we are a great pipeline for our graduates to get trained and find a job shortly after graduation.  Our Career Center provides continuous HR support for graduates.

Can it be trusted? - While we have been teaching EFL students since 2005, we are relatively new to the certificate program field (after years of preparation, our TEFL Certificate for online teaching  was launched in November 2018).  That said, we have a small but growing list of graduates who are pleased with their experience.

Our TEFL Certificate programs for Online and In-person Teaching are designed for current or prospective teachers and administrators, worldwide, who have little to no formal instruction in English Language Teaching (ELT).


Depending on which certificate is being pursued, participants will focus on teaching either young learners or young adults in English as a Foreign Language (EFL) environments.  This means teaching students outside the US, or in an online program.



Promise Opens Doors' TEFL Certificates for Online Teaching

are accredited by OTTSA

OTTSA is an independent third party organization that periodically reviews our course materials to ensure high-quality training standards.

"Do not give a fish, but teach how to fish"

Simply put, here at Promise Opens Doors we believe deeply in the power

a teacher has to impact a student's learning. The letter "A" in the hands of a teacher

can either be the most interesting subject, or the most dull

We train those who know the difference to passionately

pursue teaching English to ESL learners.

For graduates of our program, many are given the opportunity to join our pool of online, part-time teachers.  Promise also has a continually growing network of employer partners that we work with so we provide a strong pipeline for participants in our program to find teaching opportunities right after they graduate.

This support extends to graduates seeking teaching positions outside the US. Promise Opens Doors will provide full support in their search for the right position teaching in a foreign country.
