Does it make sense to get an associate's degree after already finishing my bachelor's?

So, I'm wanting to make a career transition into working as an LCDC from working in education. I need to get the class hours, but I'm wondering if it makes sense to get an associates after receiving my bachelor's in an unrelated (non-social services) field, or if I should do the coursework for the certificate and not worry about the associates. The associates would take me 4 more classes than just the certificate, but all of the classes seem like they would be relevant and interesting.
Is it strange to get an associates after a BA? Is it perceived any differently than just having a certificate? Thank you for your help!
