In some countries, employers could ask for a certificate to be apostilled, notarized or legalized in order to meet government requirements. The staff at ITTT have a range of options, information and services to assist graduates with the different requests that they may encounter.
ITTT certificates can be verified via our certificate verification page. Potential employers or government offices can simply enter the number on the page to get instant results.
If an ITTT certificate is ever misplaced or lost, a replacement certificate and worldwide postage can be purchased through our admin team. That is worth keeping in mind if you regularly change jobs or apply for visas in countries that aren't efficient with the visa process or careful with applicant's documents.
