Locksmiths install locks and security systems in homes, businesses, cars, safes, and vaults. Penn Foster offers expert training for you to pursue a new career as a locksmith. Here are a few qualities that effective locksmiths have in common:
- Detail oriented: It’s important to have a sharp eye and check things twice.
- Problem solver: Finding the missing piece can be challenging and rewarding.
- Persistent: You work until the job is done, and done well.
- Honest: You are ethical in your work for customers.
I would rate Penn Foster ten stars [out of ten]—if you’re on a budget, it’s the best school to work around your schedule. The practical exercises have you making a lot by hand, and they were very challenging. Give it a shot—you won’t regret it. I guarantee it.
