Please direct any questions about approved language-related content to fulfill certification requirements to CeLTA’s Assistant Director, Caitlin Cornell (, who advises and mentors students in language-related programs who pursue the CAL certification. It is a good idea to contact Caitlin Cornell prior to applying to the CAL certification program.
