Is training essential to become a bodyguard?

by Executive Protection Institute EPI was founded in 1978

Training to become a professional bodyguard can start high school by taking fitness and self-defense classes. If you are an aspiring bodyguard, you will benefit significantly from any military training in addition to any special courses and on-field training in protection. Since a professional bodyguard must carry out a wide range of duties, they must receive extensive training. Your client may ask you to manage crowds, chauffeur individuals, and survey areas. 

There is no solid path to becoming a successful bodyguard, so anyone planning on becoming a professional bodyguard must seek training. If you already have some military experience, it can be helpful. However, if you don't have security or military experience, you will have to look for an executive protection training course. Let's look into both these options in detail:

Military experience 

If you go into the military after finishing high school, you can get the required training for someone who wants to become a professional bodyguard one day. Training in the military often includes skills that can be carried over into the career of a professional bodyguard, including team communication and defensive use of firearms. Military training can help you acquire the right skill set for becoming a bodyguard and improve your ability to assess correctly and quickly what is happening around you. With the right military experience, you can also instill a sense of dedication and duty, often helpful.

Special training

Most aspiring bodyguards (with or without military training) often look for training under experts' supervision and some field experience. Most private institutions offer professional bodyguard training in short courses conducted both on-field and inside classrooms. Students learn to obey laws concerning protective security and protect their clients in difficult situations. They will be taught security driving, first aid, and everything required to defend their clients without opening themselves to legal or civil liability.

With the right kind of training and on-field experience, you can have a rewarding career as a professional bodyguard. However, you need to pay attention to details as your client's life may depend on it. Therefore, you must develop these critical skills if you wish to have a successful career ahead.
