Most certificate courses provide the usual international standard of at least 120 hours of tuition and 6 hours of observed teaching practice. Beyond this, TEFL programs vary greatly as to what services they can provide as well as the qualifications and experience of their trainers, and even to some degree, course content. The quality of training and actual recognition of the certificates earned varies greatly.
