Course Information

The role of an advanced Individual Bodyguard (IBG) is multifaceted, spanning from defensive combat skills to handling logistical tasks like booking flight tickets. Especially prominent in Hollywood, the responsibilities of a Bodyguard are diverse and demanding. American Bodyguard Academy has taken the initiative to establish offices and academies in globally recognized locations such as London and Los Angeles, providing unparalleled training and services.
Working independently as an IBG, or with a designated driver, is common in the private security industry. This specialized role demands exceptional skills and adaptability, as an IBG must navigate complex protocols and often operate alone, balancing multiple responsibilities simultaneously. The demand for skilled IBGs is high, with opportunities for lucrative contracts, some of which are among the world’s highest-paid security positions.
A successful IBG can command rates of around $1000 per day, but the role requires more than just physical prowess. Smart, intelligent, patient, and calm demeanor are essential attributes for an IBG, reflecting the professionalism and discipline demanded by the position.
Before enrolling in this course, candidates should carefully assess their suitability by asking themselves: “Do I have what it takes to be an IBG?”
