TEFL Institute vs. CELTA? OR: Chicago TEFL course?

I've been looking for a good certification program in Chicago and the best I can find is TEFL Institute. (teflinstitute.com/international.php)

The amount of work seems comparable to a CELTA (or Trinity) program, at least in terms of hours. The cost is also similar Ė $2000 plus books as opposed to $2500 flat for CELTA.

Is TEFL Institute considered a second-rate option? And does anybody know if their certificate is recognized on a national level? I can't seem to find that info on their site.

Better yet, has anybody on here actually done this program or any other certification program in Chicago?
