Teaching English in Thailand

I would like to teach English in Thailand. I will be taking a TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language) certificate course, but I was recently told that to work legally in Thailand I need to have a degree, requiring two to four years of study. Is this true?

To teach English in Thailand you must have a minimum of a diploma in any field and a certificate verifying that you have completed a TEFL course.
