    Firstly can anyone here recommend a good outlet that runs Thai culture courses? It would need to be on the so called 'approved list' from the board of education as it will be part of the package for applying for a Thai Teacher Licence.

    I understand the going rate is around 3-5000 baht. Is this correct?

    Thanks in advance.

    A recommendation would be nice but I think you should take the first one that is offered provided the location is convenient. They are conducted very irregularly and are only open to education degree or equivalent holders.

    Burapha in Chonburi has one in September 2016.

    If that's not for you, best to call one of the providers of your choice posted in the thread linked below.

    Do it even it's inconvenient.

    I had to stay at a hotel to do mine, and I have no regrets.

    Maybe there's a Pokeman app that can help prospective candidates find a course.

    Pokemon is GPS built and based. Directions and places isn't something invented or taught in Thailand.
