Q

Is a bachelors or associates degree required to become certified as GED instructor or does that simply increase job opportunity?
I am in the process of creating a non-profit organization which will offer various services to young men between the ages of 16-26. One of the many services offered will be GED classes. I was unclear if a bachelors or associates degree is REQUIRED to get certified as a GED Instructor or only required if someone expects to be hired. In my case, I don't need to look for someone to hire me. The non profit will hire me. I have no degree, but am academically strong - as contrary as that sounds. Therefore I am wondering if there is simply a certification program for GED Instructor, which I would qualify for? Thanks for any input.

Usually to be a GED instructor it requires a B.A. or B.S. degree. You will have to check with your state's board of education to find out the requirements to become a GED instructor. There is no federal mandate for certifying or licensing teachers for adult education programs and, even within the states, the programs can be administered outside the department of education.

I wanted to request information from the University of Nebraska at Kinsey, but when I go to request it, it doesn't have that school. I would like information about a master of science in biology, for environmental biology. Can you please tell me how I can get info for the school or some school. I want online courses only please.
