Online courses:

The certificates obtained by completing an ITTT training course are the only 100% online TEFL/TESOL certificates that are validated, accredited, and credit bearing from an internationally recognized university.

The Paris Academy recognizes the Paris College of International Education as a degree-granting higher education institute. The Paris Academy's Rectorate is overseen by the Ministries of National Education and Youth, as well as Higher Education, Research, and Innovation.

PCIE credits have been successfully transferred to universities all over the world. In the United States, credit evaluation services place PCIE in the same category as a regionally accredited university.

In-class courses:

TEFL International in-class courses are externally validated and moderated by a Board of Academic Advisors. This board includes several internationally recognized experts in the field of English Language Teaching as well as dozens of regional language experts in language teaching and teacher training. Both international and regional members advise TEFL International staff on our teacher training centers worldwide.

International board members visit our training centers worldwide. Members also participate as keynote speakers at free national teacher training conferences, and workshops sponsored and hosted by TEFL International. They also provide us with advice on the quality of our training programs in the region they visit, and advise us how our programs can adapt and change with growing trends in teacher training. International board members are not TEFL International moderators, but industry experts that advise our centers and participate in teacher training initiatives.


ITTT is an institutional member of IATEFL (the International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language).
