Their are many companies offering a wide range of training courses, some good some not so good. When I first looked at this industry I was amazed at the size of the market over 3.6 Million cars on UK roads and that's a lot of keys. Lost, stolen, locked Out, they all need your help.
It does take knowledge and skill and getting that skill and knowledge can be difficult. The industry is guarded and most locksmiths will be reluctant to help.
Training schools offer a valuable insight and are a great way to get this business going. However once you have completed your 3 or 5 days course what do you do now?
Left on your own with the basics won't earn you any money and most of the training companies will be calling you to buy their products, telling you that you need this and that. Before you reach for your wallet you may need to take stock of what is available. It can be a very expensive mistake to get it wrong. We at FOX LOCKS do not sell anything, and our recommendation are based purely on what you really need and where to buy it from.

COVID 19 Training Update
Strange times indeed but we are committed to providing a first class service.
Let’s first talk about the training , everyone has a different skill level for that reason we run an evaluation day.
This is a day on the van with Scott, me or both of us starting at 12 noon until 5pm.
we are very straight talking and the evaluation gives our students an opportunity to learn about what we do and how we do it without committing to the course, it also gives us a chance to bond and see how you would feel about working with the fox team.
I will give an honest appraisal at the end of the day on how the day went and talk about how to start your new career.
When you finish the course we want you to join the Fox team of ongoing training and help, the great thing about social media is that armed with your smart phone you can get our help remotely as part of our ongoing training and support.
Training courses are great but you will only learn this job hands on, there is no shortcut and some of the courses out their are designed just to sell you the equipment.
So what we offer is totally different from what you will get from a residential classroom course.
OK what do you get?
Hands on Training on the van one to one.
Our books, a collection of key books, remote books, chips information and lots more so you can navigate your way through the vast amount of keys locks and remotes.
