I would say that if want to be a career pilot (and have the time and money), go ahead and get will be a good refresher on regs and theory. It is not critical, but is a good resume addition.

However if you do decide to enter the active instructor pool be conscientious about the job you do. Also, as a 3000 hour guy you would have instructing opportunities that low-time cfi's do not, due to credibility and/or insurance.
