What a week we have had here at the Keytek® Academy, after a long few months of our Academy doors remaining shut and a tough year for everyone we are so pleased to see students back in our purpose-built training centre!


Locksmith Qualification Course

This week our course has been fully booked with three students on the course in order to remain covid compliant and maintain the all important social distancing measures. The three students are undertaking our Locksmith Qualification course which is brand new to the industry and we are proud to be of only two Locksmith training centres to be able offer this to our students. Previous to this week of practical training in-house at the Academy our students undertook a two-day virtual course from the comfort of their own homes learning the non-practical elements of the course in order for them to begin their training ASAP whilst remaining safe at home.

We must say that in order to offer our students practical training this month and to remain in line with the government guidelines, our students are all fairly local to us and so have been travelling into the Academy daily so that no overnight stays are required. Keeping everyone safe is our top priority, as well as keeping our customers homes secure too of course!

Our three students have done amazingly well over the past week and we can’t wait to see them develop into the successful Locksmiths they are training to be.


Keeping Everyone Safe

Over this strange year we have implemented a few changes in our Academy to ensure that we keep everyone safe, these include:

  • Course numbers limited to a maximum of three students for in-house training.
  • Hand sanitizer and hand washing stations readily available.
  • PPE worn where required.
  • Temperature checks taken daily on arrival.
  • Thorough cleaning of Academy and tools.
  • Complying with any additional changes the government sets out in order to keep everyone safe.

In implementing these few rules we are keeping as everyone as safe as can be. If you are worried about training with us during these times we hope that this has been able to offer you some peace of mind.
