So i work in the building trades. I have been for about 8 years now. Anytime we get temp hires or new hires im usually the one tasked with training them. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and tricks with new people and seeing their skills develop and grow. Lately I've come to the realization that im not as young as i use to be and can't do this type of work forever even though i enjoy it. I've been thinking that i want to move into an instructor or teaching position for my trade. I have the experience but all the job posts say "at least an associates". So my question is, when it comes to teaching degrees does the school of choice matter? Are all teaching degrees basically the same? Im good with just getting an associates from my local community college, do you really need to go to a university for this to be taken seriously? Thanks i appreciate the help.
