i have right at 3000 hours and i am just wondering if forking over the money to get my CFI ratings is necessary when i really dont plan to use them other than "check a square".

Please do everyone in the industry a favor: DO NOT get your C.F.I. There are already too many instructors out there that got their CFI for the sole purpose of building time. People forget that the instructor certificate is to TEACH PEOPLE TO FLY, and building time is a side product of teaching. It's called sharing the love. With 3000 hours you should not need to be a CFI (Unless you really want to teach, in that case good luck) that doesn't want to be there to get a job.
