The NGCL was set up to help provide stability and longevity for the locksmithing industry and create an additional support community for Locksmith Engineers. Our aim is to help Locksmiths Engineers become the best they can be and also provide ongoing support whether that be setting up a new local Locksmith business or provide ongoing support whilst out on the road. We plan to do this by providing comprehensive ongoing training, regular skills updates, access to the newest tools and parts and most importantly support and guidance.
The training courses offered by the Locksmith Training Academy are currently the highest level of accreditation in the industry. The courses are taught by industry professionals and are tailor made to help newcomers to the locksmithing trade start their career off with a high skill level, and ongoing support provided after training. All NGCL approved Locksmith courses consist of small class numbers, so all students can have the level of guidance they need to learn and improve their skills. The NGCL also offer a range of ‘brush up’ courses so Locksmith Engineers can keep up with the ever advancing demands of home security.
All members of the NGCL community have access to 24 hour support 7 days a week. We have fully qualified Locksmiths working in our head office who are available day and night if Engineers ever need some extra support, whether that be on site or advice for future jobs. It is important that when first starting out in the locksmithing industry, Engineers have the confidence to carry out jobs alone. By providing round the clock support, this can help gain confident in the work they are carrying out and also instil confidence in the customer that the work is being completed to the highest standard.
Advanced or Elite members of the NGCL have discounted access to ‘brush up’ courses. The locksmithing industry is constantly changing, and the most successful Locksmiths will move with the times and hone their skills to understand the more advanced security systems that are now being used in homes. By being an Elite or Advanced member of the NGCL Engineers get support to help ensure future success of their business, as we provide some of the most up to date training courses in the country. The NGCL also help with stock and tooling, by providing preferential parts pricing, a parts ordering service and discounted carriage charge.
The NGCL is not just here to help with training and support, but also to provide a higher volume of work. We have an expert and extensive marketing team who work hard to help every engineer gain more work. By joining the NGCL you can access support in advertising. Now that the Yellow Pages are no longer in circulation more customers are turning to the internet to find a Locksmith. This change means the majority of advertising has moved online. The NGCL is committed to supporting our members’ online presence.
So, if you are looking for support in launching a new locksmithing business or support in improving and maintaining an existing business then being part of the NGCL is a wise decision. The NGCL will support you in all areas of your business, whether that is with advertising, training or stock and toolingapproved
