TESOL Certification - Your Experience and Opinions

There are so many kinds of TESOL certification in existence, and standards are still being set. I'm interested in any stories you have of your experiences taking any form of TESOL qualification, whether it is in-house TEFL training you have received, TEFL certificates, TEFL diplomas, MA TESOL, or even if you have done original research for a PhD TESOL/applied linguistics.

What are your opinions of the courses you have taken? Have they helped make you a better teacher? To what extent did they help you, and would you recommend them to other teachers? I'm also interested in the workshops and in-house TEFL training you have received. Did it help? What kind of training has been most effective, in your opinion?

What is your experience or opinion of TESOL certification?

Share your experiences or thoughts on the TESOL training, certificates, diplomas, or degrees you've taken, or hope to take in the future.
