On the other hand, they need guidance in exploring the material, using an appropriate strategy and teaching media, using information technology and communication as well as doing self reflection. The result of learning process improvement reveals that most teachers are competent in conducting the pre-activity session in the learning process, mastering the material, and using the appropriate language. However, they still need guidance in finding the appropriate learning strategy, using teaching media, encouraging students’ participation and enthusiasm, and applying the post-activity session in learning process. It can be concluded that the certificate program is greatly beneficial although some teachers may still need some coaching. This need emerges, as, in the real situation, there are drawbacks that need to be addressed, especially those in the aspects of professional competence and learning process.
