The skills involved in being a locksmith can usually be demonstrated and shown in a relatively short period of time however the mastering of these techniques takes far longer and those deciding to train up as a locksmith need to realise that there's no easy shortcuts, it requires a lot of effort and dedication.
The tools required to be a locksmith are in reality not as expensive as many would believe and with a basic kit being only in the hundreds of pounds makes this a relatively low cost occupation to enter. When doing locksmith training in Newcastle we keep away from too much theory and get students doing real life hands on work so as they can really get to grips quickly with what's important and how it's done. We usually begin the locksmith course with a chat and a coffee so everyone can relax and get to know one another, however the small class numbers mean there's never more than 2 people!
Once the introductions and briefings are over then the course begins looking at nightlatches which are commonly referred to as Yale locks. Here we cover a range of non destructive entry methods and bypass techniques that allow you to open the door in minimal time and with no damage. Common faults and remedies are also covered in this section.
After this we move onto euro cylinders and introduce the student to specialist entry techniques using manual picking, electric pickguns and bump keys as well as other locksmith methods. Common faults and detection are looked at as is fitting and maintenance.
We conduct a large section on uPVC/Composite doors and mechanisms which is vital as the popularity of such doors has increased greatly in recent years and is something that a locksmith will find themselves dealing with on a regular basis with many issues faced such as jammed or faulty mechanisms, sticking locks or misaligned doors.
Miscellaneous locks as padlocks, roller shutter locks, bullet locks and desk locks each have various methods of specialist entry and this forms another section of the course syllabus that is vital for would be locksmiths to learn and get to grips with.
Non destructive entry methods for mortice locks include the use of try out keys and curtain picks and dealing with seized or damaged locks. Even the likes of 5 lever Insurance approved mortice locks will not deter a trainee after our locksmith training Newcastle.
