Teaching Certifications Required?
...for private, individual company services, are they required to have a teaching certificate of something that says they can "legally" teach (in the states)? i.e. photography workshops

I think that teaching certificates are required only for public and private schools (i.e K-12, Community College and Universities). Any individual or company can "teach" workshops and/or classes outside those venues. Say you wanted to teach a photo-workshop using your own studio or in any public forum then you wouldn't need a certificate. But if you want to teach a photo course at your local Community College, then you would. If that's what you're looking for.

Yup......teach to your hearts content. Only if you teach in an educational institution you need a certification.

One cannot be a"Jack of all trades, master of none" when teaching. There's too many students who will most certainly ask a question that the instructor cannot answer. When that happens you loose your credibility and students too.
