Hello,

Does anyone have any experience with this company ?
They offer the CELTA in various locations and I want to make sure it is a reputable company.....

If they weren't reputable, they would NOT be authorized to offer the CELTA.

However, if you have concerns, you can check the Better Business Bureau website to see if any complaints have ever been filed against this company. Likewise, double check the main CELTA website and make sure they are listed as an authorized CELTA provider. Thirdly, ask them to put you in touch with some recent CELTA grads from their site who can tell you about their experiences with the programs. Assuming that all of these things check out, you should be good to go.

As an alternative to CELTA, you may also want to consider SIT's TESOL Certificate program which, along with Trinity and CELTA, is one of the top three "brand name" TESOL certificate programs. I have a colleague who moonlights as a trainer for SIT and have heard nothing but good things about their program.

Thanks for this information.
Yes, I have heard of the SIT TESOL program and that it is quite good.
By the way- what is the official CELTA website ?

I did my CELTA at Teaching House in NYC, and it was excellent.
