Being an emergency locksmith in today's world contains dangers as much for the locksmith as it does for the person who needs the locksmith services. People should be more suspicious of who they allow to work on locks for their businesses and homes because of the courage of today's criminals, the technology, and the availability of supplies that fall into the wrong hands. The locksmith has to be protected from false accusations, from being blamed for damage he or she did not do, and from being sued. You can choose your own hours working full or part-time, or just on the weekends?
Choosing your own schedule appeals to many people because of the flexibility it brings into your life. These are the ingredients to a happy career having the time to spend with family, friends, flexible vacation time, days off etc. Call a local locksmith in town and ask for an apprenticeship or internship to learn the trade. It can be very rewarding. I would stay away from internet ads for employment of that nature. It generally takes about 2 years of classes and apprenticeships before you are a locksmith all by yourself. There are a ton of locksmith schools out there, some are reputable and a lot are just locksmiths who are hurting for money and open up a school. Your best bet is to find a local locksmith who is willing to train you.
You are probably going to have to scrub some floors and toilets like any apprentice but at least you're in the door. There is no better education than on the one you receive on the job. Any good locksmith shop can obtain your original key profile from your VIN number. Take your registration that has your name and number to the locksmith office to save the service call fees. You will need the registration and an ID that matches the name on the registration before they will make a key and give it to you. If you want to become a locksmith there are steps you should take to learn the skills properly. Look in your phonebook for a local trade school that offers a course in basic locksmith. The courses generally last 10-12 weeks, the tools required are minimal and it's fast work in most cases.
General residential locksmiths do much more including re-pinning (re-keying) locks, installing locks, drilling our locks, making keys and so much more. These courses scratch the surface of what a residential locksmith needs to know and they will give you the ability to contact locksmith companies that are looking for apprentices. If you are interested in becoming a locksmith the best place to start is by visiting your state Attorney General's Office either in person or on the web. They will have the licensing requirements and fees listed.
