Hello gang, I used to post quite a bit on this forum when I was applying for my third waiver and then waiting for the a Thai Culture Course. Long story short is that my current school is about to apply for my Thai Teaching License on my behalf and I would like to know how long after application process does it take for the "gold card" to arrive. As I type this, I have been offered a position at an international school and I would like to accept; but I don't want to foil my chances of becoming fully certified by jumping the gun. After a Google search, I see some folks having waited about 2 or 3 months, is this still the case? I am near the end of my 3rd waiver and I also would like to know once I get my TTL, am I free to work at any school that accepts me for the next 5 years? Or is their another series of rules and regulations that will prevent me from being a free agent. Thanks.
