TESOL certification online?

Hi Dave -- thanks for your time. I have a PhD in English Literature from the top research school in Auckland, NZ, and I've got lots of teaching experience at the university level, but I only have a little ESL experience. I'd like to get TESOL certification so I can apply for temporary work overseas or in the states (I'm a US citizen). I wouldn't mind working in China, the UK, etc. So what's my best option? I found an online course that's 120 hours for 250 and another similar course from a different organization for 295. But nothing about these certification programs encourage a sense of commitment -- I'm still sceptical about paying for something that doesn't really get me the credentials I need to apply for jobs that I see online (like at www.jobs.ac.uk).

Any (non biased) advice would really help, and I'm on a limited budget because I'm out of work right now.

Best,
Z
