To get hired as an online English teacher, companies will require you to have completed a comprehensive TEFL course. Typically this means a minimum of 120 training hours.
Traditional TEFL training courses focus on preparing you to teach in a physical classroom. This gives you the flexibility to start out teaching online but also provides you with the skills base to manage an in-person class too.
To better understand the differences for teaching digitally compared to in the classroom, take a bolt-on teaching English online preparation module alongside your core teacher training.
