Attending a Locksmith Course

Attending a Locksmith Course

When attending a Locksmith course, you can be anxious wondering what do I need to bring? What will be supplied? But not to worry, Locksmith training courses are designed to show newcomers to the industry the ropes and to teach them techniques with the essential Locksmith tools. Here we discuss attending a Locksmith course and what may be useful to bring on the day.


Choosing the Right Course

First things first, choosing the right Locksmith course! With so many to choose from choosing the right one can be confusing. Are you a Locksmith who is looking for a skill brush up? Maybe our bespoke ­1 or 2 day courses are what you need! Whereas if you are a newcomer to the industry, we would definitely recommend our Locksmith Qualification or NCFE Locksmith Accreditation. Take your time thinking about what is going to work best for you and what you are looking to achieve from a Locksmith course and then go from there!


Getting to a Locksmith Course

If you are travelling to attend a Locksmith course, always recommend making sure that you know the route beforehand. Do some research on the route, what type of roads they are, how long the journey is going to take you, is the route a high traffic area, are you going to be coming by car? Knowing this route, a little better will ensure that less can go wrong and that you arrive at the training centre with time to spare.


Arriving on Time

This might seem like a given but arriving on time or even early ensures that you are not stressed and ready to start learning. If you are late, having to rush can make you more anxious and can affect how much information you can absorb, and on a Locksmith course there is quite a lot!


What do I Need to Bring to a Locksmith Course?

Nothing! Just yourself.

When you attend a Keytek® Locksmith Course everything is provided for you to ensure that you are able to learn and gain the maximum benefits from attending our courses.  From your own individual doors and workbenches to a personal toolbox to lunch, everything is catered for whilst on site with us here at the Keytek® Locksmith Academy.


What Is Supplied on the Course?


To maximise learning and to give you some hands-on experience, we provide all our students their own doors and equipment to practise upon whilst on site to ensure that you not only understand the theoretical side but are immersed completely within the practical side.



Each student shall receive their own toolbox to use whilst on the course, that gives them full access to all of the essential tools that any Locksmith should have, and the use of private tools ensures that you gain hands on experience with the tools of the trade that you will use every day as a trading Locksmith. We also offer tool packages for you to purchase after the course. Find out more about our Tools and Stock here! 


Lunch and Refreshments

Whilst on the course, lunch and refreshments are served throughout the day. So, you don’t need to worry about bringing your own drinks or snacks, unless you want to!
