Level 3 Locksmithing Course

Our Level 3 Locksmithing Course is conducted over a three week period. Two weeks technical workshop and one week field training (field training can be arranged at a later date for convenience).

The aim of the workshop training is for you to gain in-depth technical knowledge of the Locksmith trade allowing you to understand the workings of the majority of locks which you will come across in customers premises be it domestic or commercial.

You will be taught to strip and assemble locks, make keys for them by hand and pick them open. You will also be taught other opening methods using specialist equipment. You will be trained on locking systems which are found on wooden, aluminium and UPVC doors. Also what to expect when coming across steel doors found on commercial premises such as final exit doors and grill-type gates.

Along with all of the above you will be given sound business advice from professionals with regard to the financial side of your business. You will be given advice on what stock to put in your vehicle, how your vehicle should be laid out and equipped and even what type of vehicle to use.

We will also help you acquire accounts at the major locksmith supply companies in the country. These accounts will allow you to purchase, at trade price, stock for your van, tools and any specialist requirements that you may have. You will also receive a full set of course notes.

All of this is backed-up by a FREE 24 HOUR HELPLINE should you have problems whilst trading.

This is without doubt the best Level 3 Locksmithing Course  available ANYWHERE in the UK today and on successful completion you will be awarded your Level 3 NCFE National Accredited Certificate in Locksmithing.
