What are some of the best online automotive classes?

I would like some information on the best online automotive classes to be eligible for well-paying automotive positions. I am passionate about vehicle mechanics but my career is still not at the level I that want it to be. I’m currently working in two back to back jobs as a technician. Therefore, with this relatively busy daily schedule, I can only accommodate flexible internet courses. Additional I have budget constraints and therefore I’m not looking for very expensive courses. Are free online auto mechanic classes a good option to grow my career?
