Is it necessary to get my TEFL certificate through an accredited institution?

Last Updated: Jul 17, 2012 09:35AM MDT
Absolutely. As explained above, TEFL courses are not uniform in either content or quality. Any person or institution can offer a TEFL training program without regulation or standardization. Thus, one of the best ways to know that you are enrolling in a respectable TEFL course is to check that the institution is externally validated by a reputable accrediting agency. See our ACCET Accreditation page for more information.
