I've been asking recently about how long it takes to become a stockbroker but I forgot to ask the more important question of how hard it is to become one?
I don't mind spending a bit of time learning either online or in a local college environment but I don't want to waste my time if I'm ultimately going to fail my exams. Surely it can't be that hard to become a broker can it? I don't know, maybe it can, I supose we're all good at different things aren't we.
If I were to spend 3 hours a day studying in my own time for one year do you think I would find the exam too hard at that point or do you think I'd have a fair chance at passing?
The reason for me asking is that I was originally thinking of just getting a low paid training position and letting a company train me on one of these stockbroker training schemes but looking around the Web they seem pretty few and far between and their acceptance requirements are quite high.
So is it too hard or would you say it's achieveable?
