Online Programming Courses for College Credit?

Any recommendations for online programming courses for college credit (NOT books or free online resources/tutorials)? Python and Java preferred but I'd be interested in other languages.

I'm a self-taught amateur programmer looking to develop my skills.
I am not looking for books or tutorials or free websites -- I would like to do coursework which will earn college credits. (My workplace will consider the courses to be professional development and reimburse tuition to an extent).
Ideally I would like to take courses a la carte (as opposed to enrolling in a degree program -- I already have an advanced degree and a full-time career in another field.
My local community colleges don't offer anything that fits my schedule, so I thought I'd look into online options. But search results are muddled with scammy-looking sites and thousands of free tutorials, so I thought I'd seek recommendations here.
My language of choice is Python, but I also have a strong interest in learning Java. I'd consider another language if a course/program comes very highly recommended.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
