In Response To: Re: 5 Tips for Choosing the Right TEFL Course (Dan)

I'm from the U.S., I have a bachelors degree and am interested in teaching abroad this Fall. I've been trying to figure out what I need to do so and more importantly, make sure I have the right certifications and do not get ripped off.

1. - is "accredited by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training (ACCET)"

2. - Does not appear to be accredited by anyone

3. - is "accredited by TQUK, an officially recognized Awarding Organization that is recognized and regulated by Ofqual, the British Government body responsible for monitoring and maintaining educational standards in the United Kingdom."

4. - Appears to be a U.S. based state college that provides courses.

Help! What should I be looking for when enrolling in these types of programs? Or should I even be at all?

As stated in this forum ad nauseam, there is no international accreditation for TESOL qualifications. If you're concerned about quality and global recognition, choose either the CELTA, SIT TESOL, or Trinity CertTESOL. Otherwise, head to the Cafe's country-specific job discussion forums and ask there. See the link below.
