TESOL Cert. for Work Permit

Postby mr.copula » 13 Apr 2012, 12:47

From what I've read, one can obtain a work permit with an Associates Degree and a TESOL Certificate. However, I haven't seen a list of TESOL certificates that qualify for a work visa. I know there many different flavors of TESOL certifications, some fairly easy and others not. Does anyone have experience with getting an ARC this way, or know more about the qualifications?

Some have posted that any TEFL/TESOL certificate will do even if it done online(this type of studying is not officially recognized by the MOE).

However, I have never seen a post confirming this. It has always been "a friend of a friend of a friend".

Jesus Quintana: You said it, man. Nobody
fucks with the Jesus.

Mr.Lahey: The shitabyss!
Randy: Mr. Lahey, not another night of the shitabyss, please?!
Mr.Lahey: Ah, fuck it.

What's MOE? I've seen that acronym used here a few times in related posts.

Ministry of Education.

Also keep in mind it depends where you work. Laws tend not to be enforced in a uniform way. It often depends on who the school is paying off...Ahem, I meant to say who the school boss knows.

So if I were to have 20 credits in TESOL classes from an American University and Associates Degree, do you think that would that be sufficient?
