Weird, but I can see it. The lawyer speak in me would say "With aforethought" or "Intent to teach"- why have the certificate if you don't have the intention?

But, the me in me says, "I might not want to teach, but might desire to have the knowledge and skill of a teacher". I have a degree in counseling, but only b/c of my interest in human behaviors, and one in language, though I never sought a position at the United Nations.

People here take classes like that "on audit", I think. They complete it with satisfactory marks, yet don't get the actual licentia for it.

Thats an idea - I wonder what you would have to do to get the certificate at a later date?  Repeat all the classes or just take the exam?

I've had to repeat all the classes to be able to take the exam. I think this is mainly because in the lower levels only basic technique is taught (i found it increadbly useless still...)

I get asked all the time at socials whether I'm a teacher and where I teach. I always tell them that I'm a student.  Cheesy

yes people often say that I can explain simply what is required in a routine. But the more I learn the more I think I dont know enough to teach. But it is something I really enjoy.

I wonder if it would be a post-retirement job?  If you have a retirment income teaching might be fun - and how cool to compete as a pro in pro-am Cheesy
