onlineteflcourses.com WHERE IS IT????

Unread post by jyau95 » 09 Mar 2016, 01:07

Hello last year I bought a 120 online course on onlineteflcourses.com and competed it and got my certificate. I am now looking for a job and went to try go back on the website and it has gone. It goes straight to tefl.org and tried to log in and didnt work and tried contacting and said I was a member. I tried contacting onlineteflcourses.com and they don't reply. I am very worried that now my certificate is not allowed for a tefl job. HELP!

http://www.onlineteflcourses.com now directs to tefl.org.uk as you said.

This means that either:

1. The person who ran the course went out of business and/or sold the http://www.onlineteflcourses.com domain to tefl.org.uk.

or:

2: The domain was owned by the same people that own tefl.org.uk in the first place. They originally ran the two as separate entities but have now merged them.

Whichever the case, I'd suggest contacting tefl.org.uk, stating that you notice onlineteflcourses.com now redirects to their site, and explaining your situation, asking if they can help.

If they can't, don't worry too much - the fact that the company who you got certified with has gone out of business doesn't mean that the certificate isn't valid - many employers won't look that far anyway, and for those that do, you can explain what happened. After all, it's not your fault that they went out of business, and any decent and reputable employer will understand that.

Hope that helps.
