Those who are completely new to the industry will usually start with a five or eight day course, this allows hands-on practice and expert tuition on the essentials of the industry.


Gaining a comprehensive knowledge of everything there is to know about Locksmithing only comes with years of experience and constant learning, however, carrying out a Locksmith course aimed at newcomers to the industry will give individuals a firm foundation to start work either as an independent operator or as a sub contractor for an established company such as Keytek®.
