The TRUTH about Locksmithing
(And Tips on Finding the Right Training Provider)

Whilst it’s true that you can earn a great living from being a locksmith, it is our mission to not only teach you to the highest possible standard, but also to highlight the absolute truth before you spend your hard earned money.

The streets are not paved with gold, but you can earn an excellent living. This does take time though. You will have to do the hard yards, the late night lock outs, practice when you’re quiet, build up your reputation. This is a long term rewarding career, but like any business it takes time to establish yourself. If you put enough effort in, then before long you will be reaping the rewards.
Our course is a practical hands on course, with proven entry techniques from expert trainers who have been in the industry for over 20 years.
We will not be spending five days trying to sell you tools at inflated prices. We have spoken to many locksmiths over the years who have been caught out in this way, having paid as much as 3 times more than was necessary.

This at a time when they are embarking on a journey into an industry of which they know little, and are reliant on the advice of their trainers, with whom they have placed their trust.

Rest assured, that is not us.

We do not sell tools. We will leave the “salesman stuff” to the other training providers. We will advise you at the end of the course where to buy your tools at trade prices. Buying tools from any training provider only bolsters THEIR income.
I know is sounds as if I’m talking myself out of business, I guess that’s why I drive a Ford Focus and not a Ferrari or Maserati like other training providers, but I feel you should be aware of all the facts before you part with your redundancy package or hard earned cash.

Before you choose your training provider, do your homework.

Visit any potential training centre to make sure you are not training in somebody’s shed, garage or spare room. You could be learning from somebody who has completed a locksmith course only months earlier.

If you are not good at simple DIY tasks, don’t do this course.
