Show off your TEFL/TESOL Credentials
With Digital Badges
What Are Digital Badges?
Digital badges (also known as open badges or digital credentials) allow you to showcase your achievements and receive recognition for them. In offering digital badges iTTi makes it possible to share your certification through social networks. This is not only an opportunity to show your network that you’ve successfully passed your EXIN exam, but it also shows potential employers the new skills you’ve attained and their validity. Each iTTi digital badge available on Acclaim is associated with an iTTi certification.
It tells your whole certification and training story. Because digital badges allow employers to easily see the full picture of your accomplishments, including verifiable skills and achievements, they’re becoming the new standard in training and certification and the future of e-learning.
If you have already got certified with iTTi, you may be entitled to a digital badge. To find out, email us.

Digital badges are dynamic, visual representations of the credentials you’ve earned. Each of the digital badges you see on this page represents an iTTi TEFL/TESOL certification course, specialization, or other form of professional development that we offer. Because they’re digital, these badges can provide a detailed picture of your training and accomplishments with just a click, offering more information than a traditional credential, such as a certificate.
Your TEFL/TESOL certificate provides a basic summary of your accomplishments and will show employers the total hours of certification you’ve completed and a list of the different courses you’ve taken. The certificate may also include the course transcripts. Digital badges, however, provide a deeper, more detailed description of each of your individual trainings and accomplishments, including: • The learning objectives you had to meet to earn the badge • Evidence that you completed those objectives (such as key assignments) • Your core competencies • iTTi’s standards and accreditation, including a list of accreditation, association and members.
