Codes, Laws & Regulations for the Professional Locksmith

Today’s security professional must have a firm grasp on all of the codes that affect how they go to market.


Staying current with the codes requires attending a certification seminar at least every three years so you know what has changed since the last time you were certified. Most state licensing requires a course in building codes, fire codes, and barrier free ADA laws to have a requirement of 2 CEU’s (Continuing Education Units) in each section to keep your license current.

This is an exciting new field that locksmiths should take advantage of to grow your company.
