MPL is not only one of the country’s best known providers of training for Locksmiths, they are also one of the most innovative when it comes to understanding new locks being brought into the market and passing their knowledge and expertise onto their course graduates.
Graham Jones, Managing Director of MPL takes up the story “As providers of NCFE and City and Guilds training courses we are always keen to ensure that the people who come to us get the most up to date training possible. Gaining access through a mortice lock is one thing; but being able to pick your way around the latest anti-bump, anti-snap, and anti-pick cylinders for example is another thing altogether”.
“Lock manufacturers spend their time trying to make their products the most secure and tamper proof they can possibly be; I understand that fully. But the reality is from time to time there is an ‘after-sales’ need for people to gain access through these new mechanisms – loss of keys, personal emergency, emergency services are some of the obvious ones”.
Constant evaluation of new products
“Part of our role is to ensure we are on top of all the new lock developments and associated products that come with them, and gain a full understanding of how to gain entry if required. As one of the leading training schools in the UK for locksmiths it is essential that the training we provide is the most up to date it can be, and once we understand how to get into a lock we are able to develop in house the necessary tooling to go with it. It is one of our particular skills that we can develop such a range a tools and keep our customers fully up to date with the latest requirements”.
“In fact, such is our reputation now for designing and manufacturing tools here in the UK that we are now exporting them to Germany and of all places China!”
“But it doesn’t stop there, one of the reasons people tell us they come on our courses rather than anybody else’s is because of the support we give them. Whilst they are with us we offer business mentoring, and the support continues afterwards. We offer a 24 hour advice line managed by 3 people for when they are out on site and run into any difficulties picking a particular lock; we are able to filter work down to those who are successful on our training programmes; and let’s not forget that as a business MPL can also provide all the replacement locks and hardware items they require either on a next day carrier service, or on a same day collection service. These are just some of the benefits of what we like to call being in the MPL ‘family’”.
