About The Budget Locksmith Course

The Budget Locksmith Course is aimed to get you up and running as  a locksmith and doing work but on this course you also have to do some of the handwork to get it to that stage as we restrict the man hours our team spends creating the business and relies on yourself to do some of the grunt work. This keeps the course price down. We show you exactly what to do and you will carry out each task at home in your own time. 

The training is in our lock lab and on a real home along with real practice doors but we will only send you out for one day on real jobs as we simply down have the time in the course to spend weeks on real jobs plus we only buy insurance for one day for this to help keep the price low. 

The business side of this course is very basic, we will point you in the right direction of further free training and online training but you will be in charge of things like your own business plan or how to use spreadsheets. We still include all of the legal training along with home and business insurance regulations training to BSI training . The invoicing system is easy to use and a simple app we designed to be used on your mobile phone that sends professional invoices to clients. It will be up to you to create a customer database for further marketing as we don't integrate this in this course.

We do build you a simple main landing page website like the one in the image with easy contact one push phone calling so that when a customers finds your site they can click the number and call you direct, its a basic website that works and will have a our full SEO package to make sure it ranks on Google. We will build all of your online business along with social sites and maps listings plus much more.

You will get a full logo designed by our designers at Blue Reef Designs, this can be used to create business cards and work clothing to sign writing vehicle. We will also have a custom advertisement design created that you can use to further your business. 

You will receive a full locksmith tool kit, the kit is designed to get you through the first few years of trading but its a budget based kit with budget tools, such as we miss out the lock puller that costs us £600 to buy, this alone saves money and we include a alternative tool but over half the tools are still high end, the most important items have to be of the finest quality.
