Although there are no formal educational requirements for
becoming a broker, a high school diploma and a college degree are
strongly recommended. Commodities brokers need to have a wide range
of knowledge, covering such areas as economics, world politics, and
sometimes even the weather. To begin to develop this broad base of
knowledge, start in high school by taking history, math, science,
and business classes. Since commodities brokers are constantly
working with people to make a sale, take English classes to enhance
your communication skills. In addition to this course work, you
might also consider getting a part-time job working in a sales
position. Such a job will also give you the chance to hone your
communication and sales skills.
