The answer depends a great deal on what mode of teaching you plan to enter. For mainstream (i.e. traditional brick and mortar academia) you would need a minimum of a Master's degree for most organizations. or non-traditional / digital training, a language certification is desirable for those languages for which there is such a thing. Most modern languages (Python, Rust, Go, node.js), have limited options for certification AFAIK. Microsoft languages all (except maybe F#) have a certification path.

Many digital trainers/teachers have only their experience and perhaps a relevant and well followed blog to lean on. Look at UDEMY - very cheap courseware taught by people with only their experience and a Bachelor's degree in CIS. For virtually any CIS employment situation in non-startup companies, you will need a Bachelor's degree in CIS regardless.

John recommends the following next steps:

  • Contact some existing trainers in the language or architecture in which you want to work.
  • If you can afford it, take a course on PluralSite and one on Udemy and compare the quality to see which approach suits you for a start.

Become a developer first, you will need to show expertise in coding. For reference see General Assembly's job application: https://boards.greenhouse.io/generalassembly/jobs/1009228?gh_src=x0pahylt1#app for more ideas.

Good luck and happy coding!
