Teaching ESL online courses, any recommendations?

I am still working and my teaching job has many English as a second language students. I have been looking around for a reputable but not too expensive program. Anyone have experience with this?

June, Are you looking for courses to recommend to your students? Are they adult learners? Nearly all courses are online right now, so you could check your local 2 and 4 year colleges and universities and then any other schools across Canada.
Or, are you looking for an ESL teaching certificate program for yourself? Same recommendation, but 4-year schools.

In Canada, TEFL and TESOL are the typical certificates. Just Google what's in Edmonton, or given that many have looked to online; Canada. It might be harder to fit into your schedule unless you do some intensive course over summer. They tend to run $300-600, with 120 hours average for employer pre-requisites. This is assuming you want to add this to your training. It really isn't clear whether you are asking for yourself or your students.

June, ask our mutual friend Heather J. She has started taking an online ESL course to possibly teach in the future.
