If you are interested in becoming a cryptographic technician,
take courses in mathematics and English while in high school. You
should be able to add, subtract, multiply, and divide with ease and
be able to compute ratios and percentages. The ability to read
equipment and instruction manuals and to write reports with proper
grammar, spelling, and punctuation is important in the job. You
should also take courses that will train you in typing and in the
operation of computers and business machines. Computer science
courses, business classes, and even shop classes dealing with
electronics will be helpful. Knowledge of foreign languages is
especially helpful in government and military positions, as well as
in the increasingly globalized world economy.
