    Personally, I'd go to the library and check out as many of the beginner's stock investing books/guides they offered, and go home with your pile of books and start reading. That should get you through the mechanics of investing. Like how to choose a broker, how to buy a stock, sell, and so on. You might even learn a little about company financial reports and SEC filings, and even some basic technical indicators of stock value.

    After that, it's a life-long commitment to learning, and you decide how many hours a week you wish to devote to improving your investing knowledge.

    Welcome to the forums @Matthew Perry! I'd listen to the two above for where to start, along with suggesting that you start by paper trading. However, make sure that when you start paper trading, you are trading the same dollar amount you expect to be trading when you first hop into the market. It's important to see what you can expect realistically, and you won't get that if you're trading a $500K paper trading portfolio.
