You should not confuse TESOL, TEFL or TESL with a specific certificate provider. They are terms used to mean the same thing: teaching English to people whose first language is not English.
TEFL is an acronym for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. The term is more commonly used in Europe and Ireland and the UK in particular.
TESL – Teaching English as a Second Language, is generally an American term. It is used widely across Asia, and South America too.
TESOL stands for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages which kind of combines TEFL and TESL.
Usually one or more acronyms are included in the name of these specialized courses to indicate what it is covered. Like the ICAL TESL/TEFL Certificate course or the SIT TESOL Certificate, etc.
CELTA is simply the name of a TEFL course devised by the ESOL division of the University of Cambridge. It stands for Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults. DELTA is the name of their Diploma in English Language Teaching to Adults. As for entry requirements you should check their official website.
