Q:

I have been teaching in Pennsylvania for 15 years. I currently have an elementary degree and a Library Science degree. Can these hours for this course be used toward continuing education/Act 48 hours that are required by the state of Pennsylvania?

Brandee C.  asked on  Apr 15, 2013

A:

This Groupon is for TESOL certification rather than course credits. If you want to teach in a public school in Canada or the US, a certification course such as theirs may not be sufficient because the local school board may require you have a TESOL diploma instead, which takes 2-3 years to complete. If however you are interested in working in a private school or any school abroad, their course will be more than sufficient to give you the qualifications you need to get the job.

Q:

How mAny course credits would this amount to? What institution is it affiliated with?

Jodi L.  asked on  Apr 12, 2013

A:

They are recognized by the English Language Teachers Society of Canada and The Canadian Association of Second Language Teachers, are Institutional members of IATEFL and are on the list of applicant members for accreditation at ACTDEC.

You would not receive credits for completing this course. Instead, you'll receive a certificate. A digital copy of the certificate will be sent out to you free of charge upon completion. If you require a physical copy they can accommodate that request for $30 (shipping and handling included).

Q:

I have been an elementary teacher for 15 years. Would this course satisfy required continuing education credits and would I have to complete any other requirements to be certified as an ESL teacher in the state of Pennsylvania?

Q:

What does expires 120 days after purchase mean? Does that mean you have to start the course with the 120 day period or does it mean the entire course has to be finished in 120 days after purchase?

Anne A.  asked on  Apr 12, 2013

A:

Very sorry for the confusion. You'll need to begin the course within 120 days of making the purchase. Regardless of when you begin taking the course, you'll have access to the course for a full year from the purchase date.
