Curriculum

Graduates are trained to perform all basic locksmithing tasks with minimum supervision to satisfy customer demand and to meet standards set by the trade.

They understand how to service and repair all mechanical residential and commercial door-locking devices, set up a master key system, install locks, service automotive locks and open safes without knowing the combination. Graduates are familiar with electronic and mechanical access control systems.

You’ll learn locksmithing through a combination of classroom theory, lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on benchwork, surveying, and installation. You’ll graduate with the ability to service and repair all types of residential and commercial door-locking devices. You’ll also be familiar with security technology such as electronic access control systems.

The program space includes individual benches for each student, a room for instruction and demonstration, a resource library, and all the major equipment and tools you would find in a locksmithing shop. Classes meet five days a week in the mornings, and after your second semester, you can work part-time while continuing to learn the trade in class.

On my first day of locksmithing I knew—this was exactly for me. I absolutely loved it. For my entire life I've been nursing my mechanical abilities and, with locksmithing, I could immerse myself in that clear-cut world where if something breaks, you fix it and the job is done.
