About Us

The Academy of Locksmithing was formed under the guidelines of the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005 to provide professional technical training in the field of locksmithing.

This training is presented at various levels geared to the student's knowledge and skill level. Courses are primarily designed to introduce locksmithing as a tradesman's skill and provide practical exercises to the novice student.
