Do you have advice about choosing an alternative teaching certification program in Texas?

I'm want to teach high school in Texas. I've taught at the college level but I want to switch. To do so I need to choose an alternative teaching certification program.
I think I understand pretty much how they work but I'd like to hear from people who've taken this route (or if you work with people who have). What do you wish you knew about doing this when you did it? Is it like defensive driving of the olden days, something to endure, or do you get something out of it?
I'm looking at ACT in Houston. They seemed ok. It seems to me a better idea to do a course in person rather than online. Thoughts? Any other general advice welcome. Thanks.
