Education and Training Requirements

High School

Take as many computer science classes as possible—particularly in programming, database management, computer security, and software design. In addition to computer classes, join your school’s computer or technology club and ask your computer science teachers to assign you special projects to work on in the computer lab or at home. Other useful classes include English, speech, mathematics, science, psychology, business, and social studies.
