In some cases, employers or government offices might require some form of additional authentication of your TEFL certificate. At ITTT we offer several options for you to choose from. As all ITTT certificates are produced and posted in Thailand, another option is to have a notarized copy of your certificate stamped and signed by a Thai Notary Public. With this option you will receive the notarized copy along with your original TEFL certificate. The fee for the Notary Public service is $45.
One final option we offer is to have a copy of your original TEFL certificate authenticated by the ITTT registrar and then have it countersigned by a Notary Public. If you choose this option you will receive the original certificate and the verified copy by post, anywhere you would like it sent. The fee for the registrar verification and Notary Public authentication is $95. Although we are more than happy to arrange any of these options for you, it is usually unnecessary for most course graduates.
