Despite popular beleif becoming a locksmith is not like having a license to print money but it CAN be very lucrative and rewarding depending on your locksmith skills, customer skills and business management (if you choose to set up your own locksmith business).
There is plenty of work out there for locksmiths because locks and keys are used by everybody everyday and if you have ever had to use a locksmith's services then you will know how expensive they can be.
There are many locksmiths out there who simply destroy and replace locks. These traders are limited with the kind of jobs they can undertake and can quickly develop a bad name for themselves, we call them "driller killers". Professional locksmiths will only ever destroy a lock as a last resort. Being able to pick or bypass locks means you only have to charge your customers for your work without adding insult to injury by charging for a new lock. ANYONE CAN DESTROY A LOCK AND CAUSE DOOR DAMAGE!
Wether you choose to be a 24 hour locksmith or just work regular 9 to 5 hours you will find the work and money that comes with it to be very satisfactory. The hard part of becoming a locksmith is getting started and then establishing yourself as a reliable tradesman.
It is easy to spend an absolute fortune on locksmith courses, tools and materials so do your research and find the right education for you. Also do some ground work before you decide to begin a professional locksmith training course. Are there any locksmiths already working in your area and if so what other areas do they cover and what kind of locksmith are they? (domestic locksmith, auto locksmith, emergency locksmith, safe engineer). You also need to decide if you want to work for an existing company as an employee or if you want to set up your own locksmith business. If you decide to become an employee of an existing company then you may only need to be able to deal with certain types of locks (this means you could do a shorter and cheaper locksmith course that is tailored towards your specific needs.
