Being a bail bondsman in the bail bond industry where the life and freedom of somebody (who is more than likely a complete stranger putting complete faith and dependence on you) is a serious undertaking. A high school diploma isn’t good enough; neither is 4 years of undergrad let alone a masters or doctorate in science or physical therapy or psychology. It requires a standalone license. And this isn’t a lifetime license either – just like you need to renew a driver’s license every few years, a bail bond license needs to be renewed frequently as well.

This includes brushing up on “textbook knowledge” like how to interact and speak with clients or not grow too emotionally invested. They review procedures for bail bonds, including new or adapted ones. They anticipate situations so they are properly prepared.
