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

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 alot of hard work to build up that reputation.
