I know I need a training course, more to learn how to teach English than anything else. I'm looking at BridgeLinguatec in Buenos Aires. They offer a four week course with 6 hours of practice, and conditional employment in BA for the first few people to sign up for the course there.

Does anyone know if BridgeLinguatec is a reputable school?

Is this "conditional employment" something I should take seriously?

Should I be looking more seriously at a different program, like the ViaLingua course in Guadalajara (does anyone know anything about this one?)?

I'm open to suggestions if people think I'm barking up the wrong tree all together.

Details: I'm at square one, in that I know I want to teach English overseas, but I haven't pulled the trigger yet. I'm two years removed from college and can't handle my cubicle anymore, so I need a drastic change.
I minored in Spanish in college and I'd like to go to Argentina with my main goal being to really learn Spanish. Money is a factor, so I'd like to keep my training expenses to a minimum. I've tentatively ruled out CELTA.
Thank you in advance for any advice that you can give a beginner.

why have you ruled out doing a CELTA? Do a CELTA asap (it costs, but there you go) and then choose a Spanish speaking country where youre most likely to get a job and therefore experience. Im in Argentina at the minute but probably Mexico would be the easiest place to get some experience. Experience and the ability to bullshit/project enthusiasm are the most important.
