What are requirements of becoming a bodyguard?
Generally it depends on the level of work you are doing, but it is preferred that all bodyguards have at least high school diplomas and the following are some of the things that can make you stand out:
If you’ve had military schooling and experience you will be preferred for bodyguard and protection jobs because you are likely to possess better situational analysis skills and reactionary times along with loyalty for your duty.
High school or college isn’t the end of education when it comes to security services. Since you will be dealing with legal issues as well, it would help if you had a degree in law or criminal justice. Firearm training is definitely a plus along with combat, first aid and self defense training.
When you are operating at high levels and working with high profile VIPs, a lot of the work is about preventing and avoiding threats rather than protecting clients against them actively. You don’t want the client or yourself to be in a position where any threats are materialized. Instead, you need to create plans of actions to avoid threats.
This is where special training comes to use and allows you to handle legal matters and sensitive issues properly, and with plan ahead to create policies and systems to ensure that your client remains safe at all times.
As with most areas of work, security is often regulated as well and you will need a formal license to be able to operate as a bodyguard, especially if you will be required to carry weapons.
You may also need to exhibit proof of skills like fire risk management, conflict management and physical intervention with relevant certificates.
