The aim of this study was to check teachers’ satisfaction regarding in-service training courses held for EFL teachers in Iran. A quantitative design was used in this study to collect EFL teachers’ ideas. The sample comprised 57 teachers that were selected non-randomly; they had MA and BA in ELT and included both permanent and contract teachers in the Ministry of Education working in Isfahan, Iran. A questionnaire was used as the instrument for the collection of data in written form. The data collected through the questionnaire were subjected to statistical analysis using SPSS. The results indicated that the Iranian EFL teachers were significantly satisfied with in-service training programs held for them. Moreover, novice Iranian EFL teachers were more satisfied with in-service training programs compared to their experienced counterparts. The study provided implications for policy makers, teacher trainers, and EFL teachers.
