5 Day Locksmith Training Course in Newquay Cornwall! | Train to be a Locksmith including Accommodation for 7 Nights!

The Locksmith Holiday is the perfect chance to combine a training course in locksmithing skills, hands on one to one practice and a holiday with the family or without. The choice is yours. The 7 Night 5 Day Locksmith course has become known as the Locksmith Training Holiday in Newquay Cornwall.

You will arrive at Trethiggey Holiday Park in Quintrell Downs in Newquay Cornwall over the weekend. Many arrive on the Friday or Saturday, then start the training on the Monday from 9.30am until 3.30pm with lunch in between. It's a self catering locksmith course and holiday but you will find all the appliances and accessories you need in your static holiday rental.

We have a local shop juts 5 minutes walk or 1 minutes drive from the holiday park with 3 Cornish pubs at the end of the road and an amazing breakfast spot next door. You will be only a few miles from the coast and Town centre. 

The course is hands on with some theory but you will be fitting, removing locks, undertaking a full UPVC and multi point locks and hardware course which involves removal, replacement of parts, dealing with failed parts, deadlocked doors to man made failures. You will be undertaking a full picking curse starting with the basics all the way to hand picking 3 star rated dimple locks without using decoder picks but we will then allow you to learn about them and use the decoder picks once you can pick them by hand.

You will be undertaking a residential locksmith training course dealing with all locks, doors, windows found in the residential premisses from lever locks to pin tumbler locks, wafer locks to multi point and more.

Not only will you have 7 nights accommodation and 5 days of hands-on training but it's all one to one. This is perfect as we can move at your pace. If you have a good understanding of time on

tools then you may get through the course much quicker and then spend more time sunbathing on the beach or spending time on holiday with the family. However if you really want to dig deep and challenge your skills and ability then we can go up to 6 days of training, giving you an extra day in our lock lab but remember you also get our online training package as part of this course. That is full access to our level 4 online video archive, e-books and manuals. 

Before you join us you will undertake a full online one to one pre course. This is a foundation level course known as the LFA1 qualification and it's similar to an apprentice level of training. This can take around 2 weeks of at home pre study to get you ready for your hands on course. By the time you join us you will know all your tools, locks, lock types, why locks fail, common issues and problems to fire ratings, BSI British Standard Institute kite marks and insurance regulations, laws and more.

​However, we are not done there. To make sure you don't become a rogue trader we will enrol you into the Locksmith business Development program. Statistics have shown that 4 n 10 locksmiths who do a 3 or 5 day only course with no business training end up not making enough money so that when they do get a job in, they take advantage of the unsuspecting customer, over charge, rip people off to make more money because they are struggling. Since we are part of the Guild of Master Locksmiths UK we have a duty of care to make sure that once you are trained you can earn a decent wage and not turn to underhanded tactics to make money. That's why we enrol you on the locksmith business development course that will see you complete your Safe Contractor Approved Scheme Qualifications with side courses in consumer law which is vital to making contracts such as quoting on work at peoples door steps. You will also do your health and safety risk assessment as you need to learn to be able to do this on commercial jobs. You will also undergo our locksmith business marketing course which will aid you in gaining new work online and is vital to creating a decent income.

You will receive a desk top website, mobile website and a tablet formatted website, logo and graphic design and SEO package!

We do this and supply everything because we know what works, we know how to create a real locksmith business that actually works. 

Crowded locksmith class
Some courses have up to 10 and more per course! We Only offer 1 to 1 or 1 to 2 ratio! All training unless requested is 1 to 1 ratio!

We could easily not offer one to one and do what our competitors do and that's grab the money and do classes of 6 students at a time each week. Ask yourself why we don't do that? That's because they turn out the worst in locksmiths. There is no pre-course, they come into a class of 6 people and are expected to keep up with people with lots of skill or knowledge to people that have no skills. To them it's all about money, but to us we know that once we start this journey we will be aiding you in business and on jobs for life. We don't just get you in, do a course then let you go. We make sure you're operating correctly, masking a good income and if not we will look to see why, we will figure out what's going wrong and work to get it corrected. It could be how you answer a call or what you say on that call that's stopping you from getting the job when people ring around for quotes. It could have any number of issues and that’s why we offer a full after care program and give you 2 extra days of training to be used in 24 months. If you are stuck on a specific lock then we can get you to our Newquay lock lab or our Gateshead lock lab and get it corrected or it could simply be an online training session.

If you can find this course in the UK any cheaper, offering more or the same to our standard then we will give you this course for half price! 

Steve Taylor, Master Locksmith
"My price promise to you as that you can't find what we offer for the price we offer it or the quality of skill that we put out! Why choose anyone else. Train with the best and be the best at what you do!"

This is how sure we are that it is impossible to find what we offer in the UK. No other locksmith training company dose what we do, offer what we offer at the price we offer it. They all want you to buy the tools, buy the stock off them, break the courses down into many sections and sell them individually or they offer what we call "experience days" and claim its locksmith training as you get a City and Guilds of NCFE. All that does is show howe many locksmiths they are churning out as the only way to be accredited to offer them awards is by volume. But here is the question? Where is all of the locksmiths? Why are they not trading? Because they fail in the first 6 months with £30k plus debt!

That's how confident we are in our price promise and why we don't work with them awarding bodies as we wont pump out the volumes they require as we will only put out 4 businesses each term as each business takes such a long time to train and build. We don't churn out quantity but we do put out quality, high earning locksmiths with the best and most in-depth skill set from the most in-depth and longest training course in the UK for up to 36 weeks with up to 12 months before you can receive a Guild of Master Locksmiths UK level 4 award. This award is the path to master locksmith which takes 10 years to achieve with an award every 3 years. We will make you work for your awards, we don't just give them away. If we put our name to you its because you are the best of the best, time served, skilled and of the highest quality.
