What is this TENL certification?

I apologize if this question has been posted before, but I cannot find it via the search.

The university I teach at in Fort Wayne, Indiana has a program that bestows a "TENL certificate."

I can't seem to find a good explanation of this certificate's value in the job market. Most employers ask for a TESOL or a TEFL certificate. I have yet to see much on this TENL certificate.

It is 18 credit hours, which is around 5k dollars. The plus is that it is in my town, where I have graduated with a Master's in English and have taught college English for over 8 years.

I don't want to expend the resources without knowing if this certificate is recognized by employers--I assume I will be teaching in the United States.

Thank you for reading my lengthy post!
