Accurate Locks & Glazing my life after SSI
Since leaving school I worked for a local window manufacturing firm and served my time as a glazier, window and door installer manufacturing and fitting new windows and doors for customers
In 2011 I was fortunate enough to secure a job at the steel works in Redcar when it re-opened under SSI UK. I couldn’t wait to start work as a production operative on Concast and be part of the steel industry.
This all changed at the beginning of October 2015 when I received the call not to attend work and the news and social media informed me that my days as a steel worker were over as it was for 2000 others.
I had to decide what to do next and although I knew I would go back to my trade and install windows and doors I wanted to add an extra service for customers and decided to become a locksmith.
I researched into what training was available and decided to use MPL in Wakefield due to the good reviews on their website and the qualification they offered which was NCFE level 3.
I opted for the 3 day course which included a 2 night stay, I found the course very informative the tutor Graham shared his wealth of experience and knowledge with us and enabled me to complete the qualification and learn how to become a locksmith and expand my business.
I would recommend this training to anyone, all at MPL were very approachable and friendly happy to offer advice and guidance if needed especially Nicky, if I come across a problem now I know advice is just a call away, there was four of us on the course and we have remained in contact and speak regular with each other, and I now use MPL as my suppliers for locks and tools.
