Certificates offered online through the TEL Hawaii program provide recognition of achievement in general or focused areas of study. If you wish to use a TEL certificate as part of a formal ministerial development plan, check with your denominational office first. Because courses are not taught at graduate-level intensity, TEL courses do not count toward graduate-level academic credit (see Credit for exception/details).
