The Bodyguard industry is quite a large industry, making the
Bodyguard industry an attractive industry in which to find a

Although the Bodyguard industry is less competitive than other
job industries, you are still required to meet certain job
criteria, prior to working as a Bodyguard. Usually, you are
required to attend a Bodyguard training course, prior to
working as a Bodyguard.
Most Bodyguard Training courses are designed to provide you
with basic first aid training, self-defence techniques and
sometimes weapons training. Although not all Bodyguard jobs
require that you carry a weapon, there are some Bodyguard jobs
A person with Military training, or Martial arts training, is
usually highly regarded in the Bodyguard industry, as their
