In Response To: What is this TENL certification? (Andrew N Johnson)

There are lots of different terms for training around what is very really a very similar role or type of teaching. They are slight differences between tefl and tesol and tesol, etc, but in the actual classroom they are very much equally useful and many classes for students are named rather vaguely.
Only in some very specific University courses would the terminology make much difference.
However TENL is a new term for me. Having looked at your link it does seem a very similar course to all the others, so I think in actuality it would make very little difference to the practical use, it seems that maybe this university or your state have come up with their own term for whatever reason.
But it is worth checking whether this course is about only teaching English to Absolute Beginners, as that is a slightly different skill.
For finding a job, though you may want to think about how a resume is worded and whether you want to run the risk of somebody doing a quick scan of the resume and seeing an unfamiliar term and putting it in the 'no' pile, so I imagine it would make little practical difference but wording on the resume would need to be considered.

For compatibility with other courses, I am unsure what 18 credit hours means. The usual standard for a basic beginner teacher in this field is a certificate which includes around 120 hours of class and assignment work time with some element of practicum. So you'll have to check how many actual hours of work is involved in a credit hour.
