5 Reasons to Retrain as a Locksmith

Posted on : October 14, 2021

Locksmithing is a fantastic career for anyone who likes to work with their hands, and their brain. Not only is this a practical job – so you’re not tied to a desk – but you’ll get to exercise skills such as problem-solving and creative thinking.

Our students also enjoy the inclusive nature of locksmith training, because it’s available to everyone, no matter their education level. And with the right training and support, locksmith jobs can be extremely rewarding.

Here are the reasons to retrain on a locksmith course at MPL:

1. Locksmiths are always in demand!

The locksmith career path is a reliable one, because home and business security is always in high demand.

Furthermore, with security being an important aspect for both domestic and business markets, it means there will always be room for growth. Developing new skills and understanding the latest technology is essential to keeping your CV up to date, and locksmiths get to enjoy continued learning and professional development.

2. The earnings are attractive

Salaries can vary depending on where you work, who you work for, and what hours you put in. But most of our students go self-employed, which is the best way to boost your earnings. And many people achieve their goals in a matter of years, or less.

One of our past students, Mehmet, had a turnover of over £60,000 in his first year! Watch our locksmith training testimonial video where Mehmet talks about his impressive business.

There are also many areas you can expand into, including opportunities for commercial contracts or the emergency services, giving you plenty of ways to increase earnings.

3. You can grow a business fast

A locksmith training course can also be the perfect platform for launching your own business. Being self-employed gives you the freedom to choose your own hours, and also means you can take your work in any desired direction.

This means you can enjoy a better work/life balance by fitting your work around other commitments. At the same time, ambitious entrepreneurs have the ability to expand their enterprise, taking on big clients and hiring teams to cover projects nationwide.

4. No two days are ever the same

If working in a corporate office environment isn’t for you, locksmithing could be a great way to get out and about. No two days are the same, and you won’t know where you’ll be from one day to the next.

It’s a good way to meet people, see new places and enjoy life on the road. Admin is still vital to your role though, so be prepared to do a little desk-based paperwork from time to time.

5. Locksmith training courses are for everyone

No prior qualifications are needed to join a locksmith course. Anyone can enrol for locksmith training, and there are locksmith jobs to suit all circumstances. Whether you want to work weekends or keep to sociable hours, there are many options!

With no set entry requirements, locksmith training courses allow for maximum inclusivity, drawing people from all abilities and backgrounds, and providing everyone with a chance to be successful.
