About The Business to Business Locksmith Training Program

We have trained many companies in locksmith skills from landlords to the Northumbria police and local councils to council employees in London and around the UK. 

Cutting any out gong costs, preventing damage for any business or organisation is vital to growth and management.


Having employees that need to gain entry to locks and doors either on homes or commercial premises is becoming more and more of a challenge, on one hand you need to gain entry but your staff may not have the skills needed so they are destroying doors or  door frames, expensive 3 star rated locks locks and hardware costing you the business money.


Maybe your outsourcing to other locksmiths with high overheads or labour charges and need to bring down the cost. Whatever the reason then we can help with our locksmith training programs that are bespoke and can be tailored to any business from dealing with specific locks to residential fire door rated non destructive entry dealing with commercial entry or anti barricade doors, medical cabinets with snapped keys in them to sub station KABA coded locks, or rapid emergency breach entry or simply learning to correctly service multi point doors through to toe and heeling.

Our training will give your employees hands on skills that will aim to lower the cost of repairs by entering a lock without breaking any frames or doors. It is inevitable that we may need to destroy a lock or set of handles from time to time down to the high security standards these been fitted by councils and housing companies. You can't expect trades people to gain entry to 3 star rated hardware without causing damage when they are un trained in the technical skills required or lack the tools needed. We have seen £3k fire doors smashed through just because it had a disconnected hook or bolt on a multi point system. There was no need to destroy that door. With the correct training they could have had the door open and no damage or cost to the company!

The best part is that we come to your place of work, we train your staff on site at your facilities. We bring all the jigs, locks and hardware. All you need is a training room with a TV or we can supply a TV if required. We use desk protectors, rubber mounted clamps and vices and we teach in multi million pound head offices to stores or bait rooms. 

Each of our courses can come with the specific locksmith tools your staff need to complete the course and then keep to use at work. These tool packs are what we as locksmith actually use and not the gimmicks you can find online. We can supply tools packs from just £150 at trade price which is approximately £370 worth of tools and each tool kit can be bespoke. We design our tools kits around your staff requirements using UK, German and USA tool manufactures to create security only tool sets that can't be bought online and are only available through the security industry.

We offer lock lab training at our facility from one to one or one to two students at a time, this is ideal if you only have 1 or 2 members of staff that require training. You can choose to send them to our Gateshead lock lab or send them to our Newquay Cornwall lock lab.
