on leash or off-leash training

My pup is 4.5 months, we are ready to start formal obedience training with a local dog training center. She did puppy training with them and occasionally she goes there for puppy daycare. They have 2 programs to chose, On-leash and off-leash. It is a residential boarded training with follow up skill lessons and lifetime guarantee on commands. On-leash training is 12 days. Off-leash training uses E-collar and it is 19 days, it's also way more expensive, it costs more than the dog itself. I'm on the fence choosing between those 2 programs. I feel if my dog will benefit greatly from off-leash training then I'm not opposed to forking over more cash. My goal is to eventually run with her on trails. However, in Illinois all dogs must be leashed, even on forest preserve trails. Therefore, I'm wondering if off-leash training will do us any good in the long run. I'm asking for some advice from experienced down owners
