Both our Advanced TESOL Program and OET Program offer asynchronous access. Please note that the asynchronous access under Advanced TESOL Program is the Advanced TESOL Now course.

Individual Module Access gives you the chance to enroll in a single module at a time; you can freely select from among the module offerings that most interests you, but please note that this option is only available for the OET program. Alternatively, the most cost-efficient is the ALL MODULE Access option, which is your best bet if you have the time and dedication to commit to finishing the entire program.

Individual Module Access or Phase Module Access may be upgraded to the ALL MODULE Access option. Only students who have not yet done the fourth module of their chosen program are eligible for shifting to an all module access.

Note that the decision is irreversible, so please be very sure before changing your mode of access.

Only our Advanced TESOL Program offers virtual access, aptly called Advanced TESOL Virtual

Advanced TESOL Virtual offers a mixed learning setup that combines both teacher-facilitated (i.e., synchronous) discussions and asynchronous activities.

Please note that Virtual class or Advanced TESOL Virtual has a specified class schedule for teacher-facilitated discussions, and attendance to all of these sessions will be required in order to finish the program.

A minimum payment of PHP 5,000.00 is required to reserve a spot to enroll in your chosen schedule for Advanced TESOL Virtual.

Please note that choosing GCash, Paymaya, or Direct Deposit as the mode of payment will require payment of the reservation fee within 24-hours of when reservation is placed. Failure to pay the reservation fee on time will forfeit your spot.

The modules are designed in such a way that the topics for the latter days are dependent on understanding the introductory lessons. Thus, we are unable to allow you to join an ongoing class. Instead, you can sign up for the next Advanced TESOL Virtual schedules and reserve your slot so you do not have to miss any of the sessions.

Failure to attend any of the synchronous discussions will require a retake to complete the program. Students will be required to pay a retake fee of PHP 1,250.00 per day of absence to be able to attend the corresponding make-up sessions following a designated schedule.

For missed class sessions due to medical emergencies, kindly provide us a valid medical certificate for us to waive the retake fee of PHP 1,250.00. Any non-medical reasons will be considered as an unexcused missed session, which will still require payment of the retake fee.

Click on the ENROLL NOW tab on your right hand side to select the access option you prefer. For Advanced TESOL Virtual, you will be prompted to choose the schedule you wish to enroll in.

You can pay via PayPal, GCash, Paymaya, or direct deposit (i.e., fund transfer or OTC banking). Please upload your proof of payment, such as a screenshot or photo of the deposit receipt, to the platform so that you may begin accessing your chosen modules.

If you do not have a PayPal account, you can create one at this link.

Steps to create a paypal account:

  1. Select personal account
  2. Click online shopper
  3. Fill out your personal details
  4. Sign in and verify your email address
  5. Connect your debit card or credit card

We offer staggered payments only for Advanced TESOL Virtual. You will be given instructions and a scheduled payment scheme to pay your remaining balance to be able to continue the virtual class.

Please note failure to pay according to your scheduled due date will lock your account until you have settled the payment. Lock out will be considered as a missed session.

If you are unable to proceed with the program, you must inform us about your withdrawal within 5 days of receiving your confirmation of enrollment. Failure to do so would forfeit your eligibility for a refund. The courses are also 100% non-refundable once you have already started accessing the modules.

On the sign in page, click “forgot password” and you will be prompted to input your registered email address. You will receive an email link from us to be able to reset your password.

Of course; we hope you teach right away so you can see the value of the modules as applied in a practical setting.

We cannot promise that you'll land a job immediately, since you will still need to pass the requirements of your potential employers, such as interviews or teaching demos, and will be evaluated relative to other applicants. However, there is a high chance that the certificate is included among the minimum qualifications that the hiring companies are looking for. Furthermore, the certificate and the training you receive through our programs will definitely strengthen your CV/resume and make you a more competitive applicant with the necessary skills to suit the job placements you are pursuing.

The certificate can give you a significant advantage during the hiring process and the skills you honed as a result of taking our programs will enhance your effectiveness as an English teacher, which is often a necessary point of consideration for receiving a higher salary grade. However, please note that the amount of remuneration offered for a certain position will still ultimately be decided by many other factors, such as your extent of experience, the financial situation of the hiring institution, your working hours, the depth of expertise needed, and so on.

As a training institute, ATI-Phils. does not currently provide employment services such as job placement or recruitment opportunities. However, our Career Center offers some tips and resources that may be useful in your job search. Let us know as well if we can assist you in any other way.

Not at all; you can freely choose to pursue online, face-to-face, or blended (i.e., combination of in-person and virtual setup) teaching opportunities, depending on your current situation, your own preferences and goals, and the institution’s chosen mode of delivery. Regardless of which option you decide to explore, our modules are sure to help enhance your career prospects and equip you with transferable skills to adapt to any position.
