What does it take to become a Trainer at SeaWorld?
What does it take to become an animal trainer/behaviorist at SeaWorld?
It used to be that you had to at least get a College Degree in Child Psychology
(Marine Biology not required, but didn't hurt).
What are the requirements now????

Quite a bit aside from the degree.
The swim test is pretty grueling- swim 200 yards in a straight line in one breath, tread water for 15 minutes without using your hands, dive 26' and pick up a 5# dive weight on the bottom of the pool. There's also a mic test to gauge your speaking skills and comfort level in front of a large audience. The interview is very extensive, if you even get that far.
Amnesia used to be my favourite word, but I forgot it.
