1 Day Lock Installation Course Information
MPL Course Details

Our 1 day lock installation course is perfect whether you’re an existing locksmiths looking to brush up your skills, or just starting out – lock installation is a vital skill that many locksmiths struggle with.

It’s great that you’re able to replace like for like, and gain access to these locks – but how would you cope if a customer asked you to fit one of these from scratch? If the answer is you’re not sure – then this course could be for you. Whilst this may seem like a joinery topic, many locksmiths are often asked to undertake this task. We also offer this course as an add on to our 5 day locksmith training course.

This course has been designed to offer specialist training to install various different types of locks on to wooden doors. The course covers the tools to use, maintenance of tools, and the various techniques available. As with all of our courses, this is a practical / hands on course where you get the chance to use the tools, and test out the different techniques you’re taught.
