sounds like fun. I don't see how you could get a job as an instructor with only 6 weeks under your belt and no previous experience. it's one thing to be able to ride, and another to be able to spot, understand and communicate all the little subtleties that make a world of difference. I guess that's what the course is for, so I would say yes, you probably do need it. also, you need to be able to ride with only one foot strapped in for obvious reasons.
