Everyone knows how to drive a car, but not everyone is licensed to operate the vehicle. Certificate is a proof of your knowledge, while license authorizes you to practice your skills.
What if I do not pass my final test?
Our purpose is not to fail our own trainees, but to help them obtain what they need and want. The schedule of tests will be negotiated with the applicant to collect required points. Success in a test does not mean that a trainee will become what we and employers want him or her to be. In the course of training everyone reveals his or her attitude and abilities in true colors. We do not judge by numbers in scores, we judge according to potential.
What if there are several individuals wishing to take the course?
We have a corporate training plan for more than one applicant. The package of benefits includes discounts in tuition fees and a referral commission. The amount and benefits are decided in regard with the class size and chosen courses.
What are the requirements for individuals or institutions that would like to partner with TIELC?
As far as the TIELC is not a non-for-profit organization and the course maintenance and development involves financial dependency, everyone who would pledge franchising investments or sponsorship could be eligible for the statute. However, individuals who wish to have our full support in establishing their own programs, should have a substantial teaching experience and sufficient material resources for the purpose.

I am not a native English-speaker but commit to become a teacher. Will this factor effect my acceptance?
English is an international language and speaking it fluently does not mean teaching it proficiently. English is a uniquely versatile, flexible and culturally adjustable domain. Its impartiality towards racial, political or religious affiliations is an outstanding cultural drive that makes it ideally international. People speak English in every corner of the world, but only commitment to serve the cause of teaching English makes them equal no matter where they were born or raised. Armed with this philosophy, we never distinguish teachers as native or non-native speakers. Teachers of the English language have no race, nationality or religion; they have citizenship. Have we forgotten that 99% of top linguists of the English language never considered themselves as native speakers?
We do not certify your level of language proficiency; we certify your abilities to teach English.
Who are my tutors/trainers? Can I choose them?
The tutors who will be assigned to your training are from the TIELC qualified and licensed staff. You can have the information about them after you complete your enrollment.
What if my prospect employer turns down my application even having verified my certification and credentials?
Remember that your future employer is a human being and not a machine when making a decision. He is the boss and has rights to decide in favor of his company or school. why don't you think that the problems may lie not in the paper you provide but in you? However, if this occurs TIELC can't be held responsible for how you present or "sell" yourself to your future employer. To make you feel optimistic we can only say that we have not had this situation so far and support our graduates in any way we can
Can I ask for a refund if I think that your certificate does not help in obtaining the desirable job?
