19 Apr Everything You Need to Know About Locksmith Training
How Much Should You Pay for Locksmith Training?
Locksmith training costs vary based on what is included in the course. We recommend you try to find a course that includes 4 major features:
- Live Training or Training CD/DVD
- Basic Locksmith Tools
- Available Support Monday thru Friday
- Locksmith Certification Exam
Assuming all of the above options are included you should be able to find a very high quality locksmith training course for online for $600 to $750 and at a facility for $750 to $1,000. There are increased overhead and instructor fees that raise the cost of taking a training course in a physical classroom, but some people find the hands on experience well worth it.
Some training courses will include additional information which may increase the price. It’s recommended that you start with a basic course in the event you are unhappy with the training.
Other Benefits of Locksmith Training
With any business the ability to network with other people in your industry is a must in order to be successful. Whether you enroll in a training course online or at a physical institution you should make it a point to reach out to those trainers and discuss with them their experiences as a locksmith. This type of information is invaluable.
While locksmith training may not be a requirement, it is definitely a resume booster. If you are ever intending to branch out to more competitive locksmithing specializations (i.e. institutional locksmithing) many clients and future employers will require formal training. They want to ensure they are making a good investment in an individual.
