Can you earn a £60k – £100K 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.

We very much doubt there are many out there who earn this sort of money after a short beginners course in locksmithing, whilst there may be the “exception to the rule”, below we cover important questions you need to ask yourself.

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

1. Are these earnings realistic?

Ask yourself the question, is it realistic? if so then why isn’t everyone doing it?

Hours to earn 100K – To earn this amount as a locksmith after a just a 3-day course would mean you working at least 12 hours, 7 days a week, simply not possible.

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

    If earnings figure stated as £100k is turnover, 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 locksmithing course is a bit foolhardy.

    3. Time it takes to learn to be a locksmith

    It takes a long time to learn any trade, especially becoming a locksmith, let alone establish a reputation that will help your earnings through repeat and referral business.

    You should think of locksmithing 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.

    Training to become a Locksmith

    Should you eventually wish to become a locksmith, training will be essential to learn the many skills required.
