Certificate FAQs:

01. Is this certificate accredited?

Yes! Bridge is accredited by ACCET, which is recognized by the US Department of Education.

02. Will my certificate expire?

No, your TEFL certificate will not expire! However, employers expect teachers to earn continual development throughout their careers, so we do recommend updating your certification over time by adding additional credentials. Learn more about Specialized TEFL Certification Courses.

03. How will I access my TEFL certificate?

You can download your certificate at any time for free. If you’d like to order a hard copy certificate, we have that option, as well! Please note that Bridge maintains student records for 6 years. Learn more about downloading your certificate or ordering a hard copy.

04. Can I add more hours to my certificate in the future?

Absolutely! If you add course components to your certificate, upon course completion, your certificate will automatically reflect your new course hours completed.

05. How will my employer verify my certificate?

Send your employer to this site and give them your certificate number (right side of your certificate).
