Can you earn £60k – £100K per year salary as a locksmith after a 3 day course?

Want to know if you can earn 60K-100K a year as a locksmith? read on for what we think on this subject of locksmith earnings.

Whilst there may be the proverbial “exception that proves the rule”, we very much doubt there are many out there who earn this sort of money after a short course.


Earn a 60K – 100K Salary after a 3 Day Course? 

  1. Ask yourself if you think it’s realistic?

    If so then why isn’t everyone doing it?

  2. What do they mean by earnings – is this turnover?

    If so then it has nothing to do with earnings! Yes, some locksmiths can make a good living but it takes a lot of hard work, long hours, good business sense and a fair amount of good luck! To expect these potentially high earnings immediately after undertaking a short course is a bit foolhardy.

  3. It takes a long time to learn the trade

    Let alone establish a reputation that will help your earnings through repeat and referral business. Locksmithing needs to be thought of as a long-term career rather than a get rich quick scheme.

If you wish to earn a good salary as a Locksmith it will take a lot of hard work to build up that reputation.
