There are many courses available throughout the UK, some will be one to one training, others in a larger open class forum and we have even had reports of one man in his garage claiming to offer “the best locksmith training”.
Prices generally vary from £700 to £2000 depending on the quality of the training and set up.
We would advise to avoid anything that claims you can learn it all in 3 to 5 days or companies that want to tie you into associations that have monthly or annual fees.
We have selected two courses we have had great feedback on by our LockSub Approved Locksmiths:
Matrix Locksmith Training
Chris the owner has a wealth of experience and offers training courses from Harlow in Essex.
The facilities coupled with Chris’s knowledge make this course our number one option for anyone looking to get into the locksmith industry.
MPL Locksmith Training
For anyone north of Birmingham we would suggest checking out Multi Point Locks, experienced teachers and a variety of beginner and advanced courses, prices here have always been reasonable and we have yet to hear any negative feedback.
please note locksmith training courses give you a foundation and an introduction to the trade, LockSub highly recommend practice and on the job training once courses are complete
