Codelocks first introduced its locksmith training courses in 2012 and the programme continues to be successful. Held in Codelock’s Newbury head office, the sessions are hands-on and practical – ideal for Trade professionals wanting to expand their knowledge. The training provides locksmiths and installers with the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the Codelocks product line.
The Autumn 2019 programme focuses on Codelocks’ extensive mechanical, electronic, KitLock and smart lock range. The impressive portfolio includes the popular CL5510 and the CL4510 smart locks as well as the traditional mechanical and electronic locks. Attendees will get the chance to experience its new door controller product range – Access by Codelocks.
By understanding the benefits of each of the products and discovering which access control solutions overcome customer challenges, locksmiths are able to identify new business opportunities, solve complex access control dilemmas and offer the very best advice to their customers.
Locksmith and training attendee Robin Priest from J Priest & Son said, “The locksmith industry is competitive, which is why we are always looking for the edge to ensure that we are offering the best products available.”
Locksmiths and installers are able to see how Codelocks access control products have benefitted customers in variety of settings including offices, hired venues, holiday rental homes, sports facilities and healthcare environments. Attending locksmiths and installers will also gain unique market insights and have the chance to network with like-minded professionals in the access control sector.
Jo Milne-Rowe, national sales manager UK and Middle East at Codelocks and national chairperson for the Institute of Architectural Ironmongers (IAI) is one of the trainers. Jo who has worked in the industry for over 20 years and has a skilled background in architectural hardware, mechanical security and electronic access control, explains, “We have a real mix of people that come in for the training. We have facilities managers, locksmiths and resellers that are interested in knowing all about the products so they can offer it as a solution. By coming to the training, they get an in-depth knowledge on how to install the products, but also learn some of the problem-solving techniques, so if they do have issues on site, they know how to rectify them.”
