    Look at the Flight Instructor Airplane PTS. Table on page 21. I assume you have at least a commercial or ATP airplane.
    Also, you must take the Flight Instructor Airplane written test.
    Must have the spin endorsement. Please, if you have not done this already go to a place that will really teach this and ensure you are “… competent and possesses instructional proficiency in stall awareness, spin entry, spins, and spin recovery procedures in an airplane or glider, as appropriate.” Not a place that will just do a few spins with you and sign you off.
    FAA Order 8900.2 has the process the examiner follows on page 7-121.

    And yes, it would be considered an add-on. Plus all of the above that Sam Dawson mentioned.
