There are no formal education requirements to become a secretary. To become a secretary, learn basic computer skills, such as word processing and spreadsheets. Cultivate your writing and communication skills. Employers of specific industries often require candidates to know practices and terminology within those specialty areas. Vocational schools and community colleges offer training and courses in a variety of industries. Once you have completed your training, network with managers at companies in your area to find secretary positions.
