You can use one test result from any of the following English language test providers:

Test results are valid for 36 months.

IELTS has an academic test and a general training test. Take the general training test unless your assessing authority tells you otherwise.

If you are a citizen of, and hold a valid passport from, Canada, New Zealand, the Republic of Ireland, the United Kingdom, or the United States, we consider that you have Competent English. However, if you want to claim points for Proficient or Superior English, you need to achieve the required score from one of the English language test providers.
