The Assignments & What the Students Think?

Danny and his experience on the course, why he chose us and more!

What Danny had to say about the course.

Danny was our very first online only. 100% online, working from home in Scotland! 

The reason this happened wad due to the covid pandemic and it real changed how our courses run. We will only ever operate this way as it has produced the highest calibre of student and locksmith todate. Not only in skills and fundamental knowledge, in depth knowledge but also in the business part of the course. See what Danny has to say about his time with Gateshead Locksmith Training. 

Visit Danny's facebook or website!

The following videos are some of the assignments the students have sent over after completing that section of the course. The first video is an assignment based around a puzzle. Just like the real job we often have to finde, source parts and tems and then modify them to work correctly. In this instance the student Andy Roper created a working mechanism with fitted handles lock using items he could source to create a fully operation training aid which later played the roll in lock picking to attacking locks, dealing with mechanisms before he moved on to the real doors.

One of Danny's assignments!

This is Danny's assignment, you can see what its like create a video assignment, what Danny did along with what he learns.  

Each section as a set of assignments that you work on from home and you can provide a written or video assignment on the subjects and this is what Danny sent over. In the video he explains drilling of the lock and much more. Take a look and listen to how he relates his knowledge of the subject coming from a background knowing nothing about locksmithing. He learned all of this from ourselves.
