Financial Planners

Education and Training Requirements

High School

If financial planning sounds interesting to you, take as many business and economics classes as possible as well as mathematics. Communication courses, such as speech or drama, will help put you at ease when talking in front of a crowd, something financial planners must do occasionally. English courses will help you prepare the written reports planners present to their clients. Computer science and information technology courses will help you to learn how to use databases and conduct research on the Internet.
