About us continued:
You are always learning but at this point it was to be a steep learning curve in how to run a business.
Upon request from a regular customer (A National Housing Trust) I delivered a training course which was an instant success. I have continued commercial training to this day and the main C&D course has been sculpted because of this.
Like Tony (my tutor), I will start at the beginning, we will progress through the training at your pace. We will use hand tools first before expensive electronic gismos and gadgets. You will be competent and have more than one way to "skin the cat".
Laughter is at the forefront of my training, you will be instantly relaxed and our small group will be interacting in an easy going manner. This is the best way to learn. You will become a sponge for the information because of the enjoyment it brings.
Truth About Locksmith Training
The training I recieved is now unavailable (unless you are extremely lucky). I was taught from the beginning and this is how I teach.
We start by looking and examining how locks work in great detail (hands on, not just looking at pictures like other courses). You cannot just put a pick in a student’s hand and put it into the lock and make them open it, well you can with locks that have been doctored and using a lot of luck.
You will have a great understanding of the locks you are opening before you touch a pick. You will start with hand picks and become confident with them and will not need to rely on any electric tool.
You will open real locks starting with easy ones and working up to real anti-pick pins in 5 and 6 pin cylinders.
This pattern is the same throughout the course including fitting locks with a drill and drill bit and not expensive mortice jigs (although we have them and demonstrate them).
We have all the expensive gear whether it be electric or manual and we do teach you with them, but if these are all you can use (or in most cases the only things you have been taught) and it breaks or the battery dies you are left in a really bad place....outside.
The truth is most people cannot afford the very expensive gear to get started, they also don't realise that you can start trading with a small budget...START SMALL - GROW SLOW!
We have one main course advertised while other course providers have many...ever wondered why?
If you add up their courses it is a massive outlay in most cases to complete them all.
I have one main course which includes all you need to know to start trading as a locksmith with confidence.
There is much more to learn as you progress and many different avenues to go down and specialise in for example: safes, automotive, electronic access control, manual access control etc.
I try to support people in every way I can. Life is not all about money to me, I gladly help everybody as much as I possibly can this is why I have 100% satisfaction with all of my previous students.
My extra day courses are run in our purpose built training centre and contain lots of extra learning for locksmiths who have completed the main course These are cheap if not sometimes free

IN MY OPINION EVEN IF YOU LIVE QUITE FAR AWAY, IT IS MORE THAN WORTH THE TRAVEL, ACCOMMODATION IS INCLUDED IN THE COST AND THE TRAINING IS PROBABLY THE BEST YOU WILL FIND.
