    Ok so for a long time I have always wanted a high paced job that isn't working in a office and I would love to be able to become a bodyguard the one problem is how do I go about it?

    People keep telling me I should go into the military or police whilst others talk about SIA licences etc... Which would get my career to go further?

    Im looking to do close protection which I think is guarding VIPs. I don't care about the travelling, im also 6'4 and a big build.

    Also is it a hard career to get into and would I even have a chance at protecting big names as I go further into my career. Im currently at sixth form and any advice would be a god send thanks.

    The very top body guards are ex military, mostly special operations units. Additionally, they mostly go into this career when they're looking to do something after the military, as opposed to a direct path.

    So if you want to become a body guard then go into the military, get into spec ops, hone your skills and then you'll have the skills and experience that's required for high ranking bodyguards.

    You could be a bodyguard without military experience, but not for VIPs. There's a lot of ex-military personnel who go into personal security, so if you dont have the same training and experience you won't be worth it from the clients point of view, nor might you be able to take on the challenges should they arise.

    Just a side note, going into the military just because you want to become a bodyguard is a very stupid thing to do.
