A TESOL certificate, whether obtained through an in-person or online ITTT course, remains valid for a lifetime. ITTT's TESOL certification, reflecting the enduring relevance of the skills and knowledge acquired, does not expire. Throughout the ITTT course, participants are evaluated periodically to ensure a thorough understanding of the material, culminating in a comprehensive final written task. Upon successful completion, the certification awarded is academically valid indefinitely.
