I am going to start with your second question first. The online meteorology course, while informative, will not qualify you to become meteorologist. Although you will be issued a Meteorology Certificate that will let you use the letters SAC Cert after your name upon completion of the course. This is an excellent course for anyone who is looking for an introduction to the field of meteorology.

Now, for the first part of your question. To become a meteorologist in the US you will be required to have at minimum a bachelor's degree - preferably in the fields of meteorology, however, degree in other science related areas will be acceptable as well. Just be aware that if your degree is in a related field you will have to have taken a number of meteorology related courses.
