Be a camera operator for a couple of years first and by then you'll know where to go.
Thank you. This gives me a point from which to begin.
Then the next question would logically be: where is a good school/workshop to learn to be a camera operator?

Knowing how to use it is only part of the process to working as a Steadicam Operator. Just like anyone else in the business, you'll have to network so that people know who you are and what you can do. And of course taking a class doesn't make anyone qualified. It takes time to learn the intricacies involved in camera operating in general (mechanics, art, politics) and even more so when specializing in Steadicam. Becoming a good owner/operator of a Steadicam can be a "fast track" way past Assisting, but it is also a very expensive investment that you may or may not be able to pay off quickly.
