Do you want to teach English, either at home, online, or abroad, but you’re not sure where to start? Our TEFL Certification course is fully accredited, internationally recognized, and will give you the tools you need to be successful as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language!
TEFL means Teaching English as a Foreign Language. TEFL/TESOL or TESL (Teaching English to Speakers of Foreign/Second or Other Languages) are terms that refer to certificates and programs dealing with English language teaching, and they are all equal qualifications, even though different countries will use different terms.
With a TEFL certificate, you show the schools that you’re applying to that you know how to teach - from lesson planning and classroom management to theory and pedagogical techniques.
Throughout the course, you will get the opportunity to submit lesson plans to experienced TEFL/TESOL teachers, gaining valuable feedback from experts who have been teaching abroad for years!
You can get your 120 hour TEFL certificate online through IOA, at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home!
Start your accredited TEFL certification online now - your first step to being an English teacher. Where will you go from there? You decide!

As a student, my financial resources are limited. When I found this course I was very happy because it is affordable and fully accredited. You really can't get a better deal than this. RONISHA BEST - Barbados
I enjoyed being part of the IOA experience, it gave me a platform to grow as a person and try something I have never done before. I am always looking for a course that might interest me, just to challenge myself and I believe that IOA courses are well structured. I have learned a lot from this campus.
