Welcome to the English Training and Certification Services Website


English Training and Certification Services (ETCS) is a program within the Graduate College that trains, certifies and supports OU instructors for whom English is a second language. Our former name was the English Assessment Program (EAP).

Specifically, our mission is to facilitate the successful English communication of international teaching assistants and instructors in OU classrooms.

This site contains information about our current assessment schedule and training services as well as helpful resources for improving English communicative competence. This program is highly customizable and designed to provide timely, transferable English commmunication skills for any international graduate student/instructor. 

Please contact the ETCS Office if you have additional questions. We look forward to meeting you!
