Finding Island Locks was one the the best decisions I made when looking to start my own Locksmith business.

The course is nicely structured and very hands, starting from cylinder and mortice lock basics to practical picking techniques with Jay always on hand to answer any questions I had.

The ongoing support of the islander community and online forum is priceless.

I thought going into the locksmith trade would be immensely difficult, seeing as I had no experience at all. After attending Jays 4 day course, I was confident to set up and work alone. Which I did with no problems.

I then attended his 2 day Mortice course which I found to be invaluable. I now have no worries at all attacking any lock non destructively.

Add to this the fact that Jay is always there, 24hr a day to help with advice and guidance, and a forum which is full of highly experienced and knowledgeable locksmiths, getting through life as a locksmith could not be easier. Very highly recommended.

I learnt so much more than I could have hoped for, the teaching methods were excellent and I am looking forward to putting my new skills to use. I know I will be back for another course in the future. Many thanks.

After doing a 3 day course else where I felt ill prepared for the world of locksmithing even after hours of training. I decided to take another course and found Island Locks on the web. 

Talking to them on the phone while booking the course was an education in it's self. I learnt skills and methods just talking to Jay. I wish I had of booked this course first. 
I attended the 2 day lock opening course and learnt loads. The course content and the lay out was perfect. The instruction was very clear and pitched at the right level and pace. 
Jay is a very good locksmith and trainer. He is patient and is never to hasty to take over. Instead he will offer tips and advice then help you along. All in all a very well structured course. 

I returned to attend the 1 Day advanced course a little while after. This was again a very good course and set me in good stead for my new career. 

Since the courses myself and Jay have become good friends and often share picking tips etc. Jay has a very good grasp of the locksmithing industry and is always looking for new ways to gain entry to new locks on the market. 

Further to that he is happy to share this with the Island Locks Forum members and course attendees. 

The Island Locks forum is a group of locksmiths all helping each other out and sharing tips and tricks. Again all mastered by Jay.

Having completed the BS mortice lock picking course and some tailor made days with Jay at Island locks, I felt confident to be able to move forward with my locksmith business in a professional manner.

Being able to learn first hand from a practising locksmith was invaluable. Using a broad range of relevant and up to date tools meant I could decide what worked best for me.

Since training at Island locks with hard work, practise and a wealth of information available through the on-line forum my locksmith business has gone from strength to strength thanks in part to the quality, patient training I received from Jay, many many thanks.
