Who is the Ideal Candidate for a Bodyguard Job?

by Executive Protection Institute EPI was founded in 1978

Being a private security officer (more commonly known as a bodyguard) sounds like a great job. But is it for everyone?

The short answer is: No.

The long answer is:

You may like the idea of being a private security officer (who doesn’t?), but the fact of the matter is that only a certain type of individual can carry out the roles and responsibilities of one. Not everyone can sign up for a private security training course without thoroughly preparing for what to expect. This is a pretty challenging course, and if you are not up for it, then it is not much point signing up for one.

Here are a few things you need to know about how to be a bodyguard before you decide to sign up for a private security training course:

  • You need to be physically fit.

Anyone who wishes to join a private security training program should make sure they are in the right physical condition. This is not to say that you need to be a big person to be a bodyguard. Even if you have an average build, you may still be an ideal candidate. However, if you want to get through your training and pick up your bodyguard certificate, you need to be physically fit.

  • Go in with the right mentality.

If you want to enter the bodyguard school for a bit of fun, you should think again. These specialized courses are only suitable for those candidates who are serious about becoming private security officers and who will do everything they have to do to get the perfect score and land a job in the bodyguard industry.

  • Dedication is essential.

Getting through your private security training program will be hard work, and that should be the first thing you know before you join one. You will be challenged both physically and mentally, and depending on the type of course you join, you will be pushed into a range of disciplines. For example, surveillance training and other skills may be required, and you need to be dedicated to get through and obtain your certificates.

  • You need to be inquisitive.

Questions are always welcome in private security training courses, so it is a good idea to go along with a long list of questions prepared and leave only when you are sure they have all been answered. Private security training courses are designed to prepare you for going into a job. If there is something you do not know about yet, make sure you find out before you get a job in the industry.


Private security training is ideal for specific individuals, and if you really want to be a bodyguard in 2021, this is the way to do it. Sure, it is not a job for everybody, but knowing what is involved in a training course will help you determine whether or not it is for you. So, take note of the above information before you sign up for a bodyguard training course.
