I got more out this site in one day, then I got from several years of memberships in other associations.
This is exactly what the industry needs, a spark! It reminds me of revolutionary thinking, forward thinking, and just plain thinking!
You hit this one out of the ballpark!

I feel the profession is better served by the Society of Professional Locksmiths.
I started the online classes! There is a lot of good learning material. Very complete.
As a past teacher in the public school system, I can honestly say that this entire program is fantastic! The printed course material is very professional and the online testing is exactly what is needed. I grade this program with an A+.

On line training is the future and from what I can see you are the first to really offer it in the locksmith industry to which I say my hat is off to you.

Personally, I have trained overseas in a well known and highly respected training program, I have no hesitation in recommending the SOPL training program. The idea that others are now seeking to emulate some of what is being achieved by the this unique organization, serves to justify that the SOPL is, and has become the new yardstick

I actually learned something!
The SOPL is great! I appreciate the quick and helpful response times with my questions. This has saved me a lot of time and money!

I took the Key Blank Identification course today and I’m freakin’ jazzed! I learned so much! This freakin’ rocks! I love the training already and can’t wait to get time to do the next lesson!
After joining the SOPL I have received more referrals and made more money, than 3 other trade associations put together
