Disclaimer - TESOL Core Certificate Program


Promise Opens Doors is a non-profit organization established by the founders of PromiseK14, an online education company providing high quality English language instruction to over 13,000 students since 2004. We see the Promise Opens Doors TESOL Core Certificate Program as an extension of the mission to bring the English language to every student around the world.


The Promise Opens Doors TESOL Core Certificate Program is offered through a partnership between Promise Opens Doors and TESOL International Association to provide courses in the fundamentals of ELT to current or prospective teachers and administrators. The course is structured as pass (at 80% proficiency) or no pass, completed entirely online, and includes a required number of observation hours and teaching hours. Unique to the Promise Opens Doors TESOL Core Certificate Program, the practice teaching hours are fulfilled online in our established classrooms.  


The Promise Opens Doors TESOL Core Certificate Program is NOT a teaching certification.  Those seeking teaching certification should contact their respective state departments of education.
