If your OCELT & ICTEAL Certificates have expired, you can have them reinstated at any time. Reinstatement applications are processed in two to four weeks from the date of receipt.
TESL Ontario certified members are required to complete 10 hours of professional development (PD) activities during each certification year. If you had been selected for PD Audit in the same year when you allowed your certification to lapse but did not submit your proof of PD at that time, your reinstatement application form should be accompanied with scan/s of proof of 10 PD hours, completed at any time during or after your last year of certification. For information about activities recognized as PD, please click here.
