Do You Want To Be A Locksmith? Some Things You Should Know

Becoming a Locksmith can offer you more than just a career.

Qualified Locksmiths can earn  up to £60k – £100K per year, once fully trained.

It can take a long time to learn a trade let alone establish a reputation that will help your earnings through repeat and referral business. Locksmithing needs to be thought of as a long term career rather than a get rich quick scheme.

What sort of training do you need?

Should you eventually wish to become a locksmith, training will be essential to learn the many skills required.

There are numerous organisations, including the MLA who offer specific and recognised training courses from becoming a general Locksmith to more advanced areas of Auto-Locksmithing and electrical access control.
