Our 120-hour course is our most popular online course as it provides you with the highest quality instruction and an online TEFL certificate that is recognized around the world. One of the many reasons why this course is so popular is that it can be completed at your own pace, which means that you can organize your study around your own personal circumstances. ITTT also provides post-course job support for as long as you need it.
Once you have officially enrolled on the 120-hour course, you will receive an email containing the log-in details you will need to gain access to your personal, restricted area of our online training course system. From this system you will be able to start studying your course materials either online or by downloading them to your personal devices.
After you have completed your studies for the first unit, your understanding of the materials will be assessed before you move on to study the next unit. Once all units have been completed you will be required to complete a final summative task. Once this essay-style task has been reviewed and accepted, you will graduate from the course.
