If you’re considering a career in locksmithing, we strongly recommend taking a Locksmith training course. Dedicated training courses will provide you with all the necessary skills, knowledge and know how to begin your professional Locksmith career. However, with so many Locksmith training firms across the UK providing these courses, how do you know which one to choose?


In this blog we discuss researching tips and tactics, as well as the most important factors to consider while looking for the best Locksmith training academy.


What does the Training Academy Offer?

There are lots of different courses out there for Locksmith training and you’ll need to do a bit of research about what training you want, what course you want to do and what academies offer that.


If you are looking to become a Locksmith then a course designed for newcomers (like our 5 Day Locksmith Accreditation or Locksmith Qualification) is perfect to provide you with all of the necessary skills, so research what type of courses a Locksmith training centre offers like this to really understand what you will get from the course!


Give the training centre a call or send them an email asking  for more details about the course and if they have a course prospectus. Find out how the course is delivered and how long it is, remember if you want to learn new skills, a hands-on approach is more likely to be beneficial.


Also consider that not all training centres will offer the same courses, for example did you know that we here at the Keytek® Locksmith Training Academy are one of the only training providers in the country to offer the Locksmith Qualification!


Speak to the Trainer

If you are hesitating about doing a course or can’t decide between a few different ones why not ask to speak to one of the trainers. Speaking to one of the trainers can give you a better understanding of how the course runs, it’s content and how it will benefit you. Here at Keytek® we offer.

Reviews and Recommendations of the Academy

Online reviews are not only super helpful to get a bit more information about the team but also gives you an insight into the course and whether previous students recommend it. With so many Locksmith training courses out there make sure you do your homework checking the training academy’s online reviews on Google and social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, etc).

What Happens After You Complete the Course?

Becoming an expert Locksmith can take a little while after your course as you need to build confidence and experience, so something to consider is if the course you are looking at doing has any after course care. For example, we here at Keytek® offer 24-hour on-site technical support after course completion to ensure that you have the support and help needed to begin your Locksmith career.
