It is a waste of time for a professional educator, and insulting as well.
It's a waste of time for me to sit in class and listen to the same concept be explained for the third time because someone in the classroom doesn't get it. But I want that college degree so there I sit.
It's a waste of time for me to sit in class and listen to a teacher talk about things completely unrelated to the course topic. Rather insulting as well, since I paid to learn about the course topic, not about the teachers personal life, political views, etc. But I want that college degree so there I sit.
There is really no difference between the above wastes of my time and the waste of a "professional educator's" time who has to sit through an hour or two discussion of basic pedagogy to get a USPA coach rating. Well, other than the fact that a lot more of my time is wasted by "professional educators" in class than is wasted on pedagogy in a coach course.
