Master Locksmith Business Start up and Course | Locksmith Business | Locksmith Training | Gateshead | Newcastle | Sunderland

Welcome to our master locksmith business start up and training course, below you will find as much infomation as we can give you about this locksmith course.

First a few things you should know!



  • Q, Why do you only allow 4 people on a master locksmith course each year?
  • A, This is not a gimmick course and it needs to be one on one! Ask yourself why these other companies put out 8 new locksmiths each week but yet they vanish? Where do they go? We call this gimmick training, they teach your how to become a locksmith but then they vanish as the business side of the training is not there. This is where we are different, we make sure people can find you on Google without paid adds. This is why you need the full business training to assist the new business in growth to make to work, this takes allot of time, so we only allow 4 each year!
  • Q, Can you learn to be a locksmith in 3 - 5 days?
  • A, Yes and No, yes you can learn some gimmick tips but real training comes from  real jobs and real issues and real experience. All a classroom can do is prepare you but it gives you no real life experience. This course takes 7 - 14 days spread over 2 - 3 days per week. Most complete this in 4 weeks with 2 days per week with further home training and online training for around another 2 months. The subject is a large subject and you need time to take in each section and practice each section with home assignments.
  • Q, What is the price?
  • A, The price for this training is extremely low, the package we sell would cost over £10k just to put it together but we actually do it all for £3500 for 2019 / 2020 but currently it is £2900 as we only have 1 position left for 2019.
  • Q, How long does it take to build the website and go live?
  • It depends as its a two way build, we create the site and all the pages and background content, images and graphics along with the coding and do all the hard parts but we will give you assignments which you will need to complete to help the website rank on Google. We do this to make sure you can maintain your website in in the future, been self sufficient is the key to success. But there is no reason a website cant be fully built and live and ranking on Google within one week of the training starting. It takes our guys around 12 hours each day for around about a 1 week to two weeks to build the website, then the mobile site and business platforms such as your online invoice systems and marketing programs etc. .
  • Q, How long till I earn money?
  • A, It depends on the area you are in and what your direct competition is with the area, we wont take you on to our course if you cant earn money as a business, we won't put our name to a failed business start up! We say from 1 month of the business launch to a maximum of 6 months to start seeing regular business and how motivated you are to follow our advise and training. Your overall target will be 3 - 6 jobs per day by the end of year 2 with a annual income of around £30.000 to £130k and by year 4 to year 6 seeing you make around £250.000 per year depending on your area, population etc. Basically, work it out at that a basic hob is around £130 and we do 3 jobs a day, =  £390, that is around 4 hours work, now if we do that for 7 days = £2,730 a week, based on 4 weeks that is = £10,920 if you worked every day as we tend to then the profit on a  basic job is = £131,040 per year and that is on our basic rates.
  • Q, I don't live close, can I still do the course as it takes weeks!
  • A, Yes you can still do the course, we have a way of making sure all the actual hands on training is completed in 5 days but you would benefit from further training so visiting in a month or two would help, the rest can be achieved online via video chat and further training can be arranged for future dates to make sure your the best you can be.
  • Q, Why do I need home insurance and legal training! 
  • A, well you are going to be working on peoples homes and we need to  make sure you know your business legal terms and conditions to make sure you put the customer in harm's way which could lead to you been arrested or fined. We need to make sure you only fit the correct locks to meet home insurance regulations plus much more. 
  • Q, Can I do just the locksmith training with tools?
  • A, Yes you can, we often do this for existing companies that are already established and need further training for new staff, the prices vary on how many attendees you need but for one person with a tools package it would be a 5 day course held in one week and the price for this would be £1600 or £1200 without the tools package, or a basic tools pack and training would cost £1350. If you book more than one just for training then your are looking at 3-4 days for £1000 per person, call us for more information on 07525639943

Locksmith Tools Package

Legal, Terms and Conditions Training

This is such a tread carefully area as many locksmiths don't even know anything about the UK law and how there work can affect peoples lives. We make sure you have the most up to date terms and conditions created by a legal team of solicitors to make sure you get paid on time and every time while protecting you and any future investment in to your business.

I live in Gateshead, can I do this course?

No, you cannot unless you want to cover a different area.

Its nothing personal but it is business. We currently have to many locksmiths in our area competing for work as it is and we dominate the area and contracts and we will keep our stance on this. We have tried to launch other locksmith franchises in Gateshead but non have managed to get to the front page of Google due to the competition of multi million pound companies trying to rank on the tops spot.

How can I tell if I have stiff competition?

Its best to call us to have a chat first, we can then find out some information and look at the areas where you will be working and see what your competition is.
