The Best Way To Learn

Locksmith Training

One-to-One Training By The Expert Locksmith with 30 Years Experience

It’s all about the one-to-one

Locksmith training that works

Would you like a new career? One that gives you flexibility, the option to work when you want, offers little stress, and one that provides a very good income.

I’m Nick Foster, I have over 30 years experience as a successful and busy locksmith and I offer a 4 day, hands-on, one to one training course for domestic locksmithing including UPVC door fixes. You’ll receive an introduction to vehicle entry too.

Based in Bury, Lancashire, the training will be provided in my fully equipped training space and crucially, for you to get the very most from your training, also on real jobs you’ll attend with me in the Bury and Bolton area.

The training course is informal, loosely structured and has no final exam with little written content. This is a hands-on, one-to-one training course and that’s exactly what you’ll be doing and learning from. 

To attend, all you have to do is book, pay a deposit to reserve your place and come along on your designated days. Everything else is prepared for you to learn the skills of locksmithing, and the business of being a locksmith, as much as possible on any course. And since you’ll be close by you can even attend night appointments with me for yet more training and valuable experience.

MJS Locksmith

"I saw other courses online but I decided on Dr Lock because of the real world training, like a mini apprenticeship. And once I chatted to Nick on the phone that just clinched the deal. If you are serious about becoming a locksmith, then get on this course, you will not be disappointed."

Martin

MJS Locksmiths

"After being a landscape gardener for 20 years I had to change careers because of a bad back. And although I looked at the other locksmith trainers out there I'm so glad I chose to go with Nick and his course. He made everything engaging and enjoyable and I've not looked back"

James

JL Locksmiths

"Spoke to Nick at great length before I made the leap. What impressed me was that he was happy to talk for as long as I needed (hours in my case). We had a great week, mostly on the road and there's nothing in the industry like the Network, it's invaluable if you want to grow your business."
