Mission Statement


It is our mission to prepare the locksmith and aspiring locksmith for actual work in the field, by teaching a curriculum of practical education that is designed to be technically progressive. We will not develop or teach any classes that will simply fill credit hours, promote individual manufacturers or distributers. The locksmith will be able to take this education from the classroom and immediately be able to apply what he has learned, and thereby increase productivity, profitability, and customer service.

James Wiedman, CML,CFDI
