Can I take the Diploma in TESOL course without prior TEFL certification?

However, as the 370-hour Diploma in TESOL course also includes our 120-hour TEFL certification, this is not an issue. Simply sign up for the Diploma in TESOL course and you will learn all the most important teaching subjects first, before you move onto the main diploma section of the course.
