Graduates of the VIA Pro 120 TESL/TESOL Diploma Programs are eligible to apply for the TESL/TESOL Canada Professional Standard One Certificate. This is the basic standard for ESL teachers in Canada, both in private and public school programs. In addition, TESL/TESOL Canada certification is a requirement for all teachers in member schools of Languages Canada.
