MPL Delivers Key to Locksmith Success

Wakefield-based MPL, a provider of locksmith training, is seeing a surge in interest with the number of people booking on its courses up by 40% on 2016.

Over 1000 individuals from across the UK and Europe have already benefited from MPL's range of courses since 2010 with the vast majority going on to establish successful locksmith businesses.

Operations Director Nicky England commented:

"We are seeing a definitive upturn of interest in demand for our courses. Whether it's someone looking for a complete career change or existing, established locksmiths wanting to ‘skill up', it's clear that more and more are recognizing the benefits of our training courses.

"From ex Forces personnel to London taxi drivers, those attending our courses come from a wide variety of backgrounds. We're seeing big demand from across the Irish Sea due to recent changes to Ireland's trade licensing laws.

"We are the only locksmith training provider in the UK to offer City & Guilds accreditation. That's a seal of approval that counts for a lot and we have accredited over 200 individuals since gaining City & Guilds status in January 2016 which is made of up candidates new to the industry or existing Locksmiths upgrading the skills and certification," added Nicky.

Bought out in 2006 by former Bradford City AFC Director Graham Jones, MPL currently employs around 11 staff and instructors out of two bases in Wakefield. MPL also has a trade centre at its outlet on Westgate End.

Nicky went on "We opened a new training facility at Thornes Office Park in January 2017 and this has contributed towards increased capacity and increased resources that only enhance the impact of each course.

"It's clear that most people consider a career change at some point in their lives and we're here to help them realise and unlock their potential should they decide to become a locksmith," concluded Nicky.

An MPL training course proved to be a "Diamond move for locksmith Shane".

It's seven years since locksmith Shane Diamond opted for a career change and he's not looked back since! He's in control of his life!

Shane, who hails from the Robin Hood area of Wakefield, had done a number of different jobs in admin, banking, insurance and transport before deciding to make the break and work for himself as a locksmith.

"I opted to do the MPL locksmith training course which, back then, took place at Bradford City's Valley Parade stadium. It was a risk but one of the best decisions I've made in my life.

"The course was thorough and very empowering. It gave me all of the skills and knowledge to deal with virtually any kind of lock and I've regularly ‘topped up' my skills on MPL's additional range of locksmith courses.

"Within a month of ‘graduating' I'd already earned what I'd paid for the course and within two months I was fully up and running with a viable business and all of my tools and hardware paid for.

"Seven years on and I'm doing just fine. Being self employed I can find more valuable time to spend with my young family and I've been able to start on a project refurbishing an old fishing boat at Stanley Marina.

"I've got control over my life and my time with the MPL course giving me the keys to unlock a fantastic new career," concluded Shane.
