Training and Qualifications Source

“Most states require some formal training from an accredited college or vocational program. These are usually one year certificate programs. Prerequisites include chemistry, biology, and psychology.”

If you attend community college for two years, you get an AA (associate’s) degree. The courses, at least where I live, are inexpensive, given at convenient hours for those with jobs and have decent professors. You can certainly take chemistry, bio and pysc. 101 to see how well you do.

PS. Why not take one course at CC and see how it goes? Better to get your feet wet in the pond than stand on the shore and ask how deep the water is.
