Why choose to be a TECS certification center?

Our  TECS  test complies with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages; it is a reliable, secure and 100% communicative test.

TECS  has been concerned about leaving the structure of traditional exams, providing the test taker a less stressful and different experience since our test is based on the actual use of the English language in modern contexts and issues of common interest.

Our team of developers care about making permanent updates to the tests to provide a better experience to the candidate who intends to travel abroad, meet their graduation requirement or certify their English for employment purposes, demonstrating their skills through a real communicative test.

TECS is a standardized international test that fits most of the budgets offering a complete, efficient, reliable and fully competitive option.

Many of the tests that are currently available do not include a speaking test and if they do, the results may take too long to be received by the taker, TECS offers the possibility of certifying the 4 basic communication skills and receive the certificate immediately.

ILTO develops tests that benefit both the test taker and the companies interested in knowing the English level of their students or employees, because in addition to thinking about the candidate we developed a comprehensive administrator site free of charge for agents, which makes the administration and reports of the test takers easier. This administrator site offers TECS certification centers the possibility to have the control of the test information in one place, download reports, figures, progress of the language development in the institution and more.


Approximately 120 minutes.

The speaking tests are performed by English professors via Skype from our location in USA or teachers of each institution after being trained and certified.

Speaking, reading, listening and language usage.

The results are issued immediately by the system; they will be given to each candidate according to the agents policy. 

ILTO makes a comprehensive analysis of the TECS certification centers, to make sure they comply with all the ethical and test security conditions..

We also have a Fraud Prevention Office (FPO) which is in charge of the investigation of possible fraudulent actions.
