Courses to Break Into Sales and Trading

Does anyone have any good recommendations on courses to help you break into Sales and Trading? I’m looking to make a switch into S&T and taking the CFA as a first step to that.

There is a lot of theory in the CFA, but i want to know how thing actually work on the trading floor and learn how to use a Bloomberg terminal. I’m thinking about signing up for the Wall Street Prep Sales & Trading course in NYC in two weeks.

Has anyone here taken it? Do you think it will help me position myself if a front office job comes up? Do you think it would help me with my exam progress?

It can’t hurt, but it’s probably only like 5% of the prerequisite for any kind of job.
