In Response To: Online TEFL any good? (Nick Ravenscroft)

To summarise the dozens of times we've already responded to this question.
Not all countries require any TEFL cert. But having one will give you an edge over people without one.
Ones with actual face-to-face time and observed classroom teaching stand out as better; just because you've been in a classroom, does not mean you've been doing it well, especially if nobody's observed you.
Known brands such as CELTA or Trinity CertTESOL need you to do less convincing of potential employers that you have a worthwhile cert.
