ITTT - Affiliations
ITTT has been providing TEFL and TESOL courses since the 1990s and during this time has developed relationships with many of the leading individuals, institutes and schools in the industry. We are committed to improving the standard of English language teaching worldwide and we only offer the highest quality courses. Below you will find some of our main affiliations and accreditations:
Fort Hays State University
Fort Hays State University validates TEFL International certificates issued at all locations worldwide.
Located in Kansas, in the USA, FHSU has an enrolment of more than 13,000 students and offers hundreds of certificate and degree programs at the associate's, bachelor's and master's levels via 28 academic departments. More details at fhsu.edu.
Fort Hays State University completes regular Quality Assurance reports on the TEFL International TESOL certificate. Each course graduate receives a summary letter of this report from Fort Hays State University and all TEFL International graduates will have an option (for a $100 fee) to gain three credits and a transcript from FHSU.

Teacher Training Council
Five-day combined courses are moderated by the Teacher Training Council.
The Teacher Training Council accreditation is an international learning and development body. Underpinning all that we do is the principle of ‘Excellence via Competence’.
Training Issues has worked successfully for over 10 years with many enterprises throughout the world, helping them with a wide range of learning and development strategies, assessment and accreditation. As a result, the Training Issues team have built an enviable reputation for high standards and quality, customer experience excellence and getting it right first time.
During this time, over 90% of the work that Training Issues has been involved in has been with personnel whose first language is not English. In one recent accreditation project alone, we needed to take account of 8 separate Asian languages when carrying out our accreditation work. Thus, over 10 years plus, the majority of materials and documentation designed, developed and accredited has been geared specifically to those who use English as a second or foreign language.
As a result of our lengthy experience gained in accrediting international courses with an extensive ELT content, and accrediting Training companies, we now feel that we should also offer this accreditation service to independent TEFL/TESOL Providers who are willing to meet the high accreditation standards set by Teacher Training Council.
OTTSA - Online TESOL and TEFL Standards Agency
All ITTT online TEFL courses are fully accredited by the Online TESOL and TEFL Standards Agency. OTTSA is a professional educational organization that is dedicated to raising standards within the teacher-training industry, specifically online courses in Teaching English as a Foreign Language.
Our in-class tefl certification courses are externally validated and moderated by a Board of Academic Advisors. This board includes several internationally recognized experts in the field of EFL teaching, as well as dozens of regional experts in language teaching and teacher training. Both international and regional members regularly advise the staff at our teacher training centres worldwide.
The international members of the board regularly visit our centres worldwide and participate as keynote speakers at national teacher training conferences and workshops. They also provide us with advice on the quality of our training programs and how our programs can be adapted to keep pace with the growing trends in language teaching. Our international board members are not moderators, but industry experts that advise our centres and participate in teacher training initiatives.
Our regional board members are trained specialists with more than five years’ experience in teacher training and managerial positions. Regional members visit our centres monthly to moderate each course and to ensure that it is of a high quality and meets the required industry standards, as well as to ensure the satisfaction of our trainees. A regional board member is not a staff member, but rather a paid external consultant that moderates our courses monthly by visiting our centre in the region where they have a detailed knowledge of the local industry needs. The regional moderators meet with training staff and course participants; review course participants’ work and check that the centre’s resources are of the required standard.
