Airport Security Personnel
To work in most airport security jobs, you should have at least
a high school diploma. However, security screeners can sidestep
this educational requirement with previous job experience in
security. While in high school, take classes in history and
government to familiarize yourself with previous events and
political threats that have threatened our national security, such
as foreign hijackers and terrorist operations. You should also be
comfortable working with computers since most jobs in security
involve a great deal of technology. Math classes can be beneficial
because as a security worker, you must be analytical and observant
to identify and catch dangers before they happen.
