Bodyguard licensing and insurance requirements vary across states. There are no federal standards or statutes pertaining to bodyguard training programs. The type of security being provided, whether or not it is armed security, the scope of security offered and specific job requirements will determine the kind of training needed.
While security companies must be registered, licensed and insured to offer bodyguards or executive protection specialists, there is no official certification for aspiring bodyguards. There are however private schools offering comprehensive training programs. So how do you choose the right one for you?
