ETHICS FOR LOCKSMITHS - John Truempy / Vernon Kelley
Thursday. September 21st, 8:00AM - 5:00PM
This is a 1-day course for locksmiths of any skill level. Join us for a mind-bending discussion on the ethical and legal aspects of working as a locksmith in today’s business climate. Topics include professional, business & marketing ethics, who really owns that master key system, customer-signed waivers & hold-harmless documents, and the legal ramifications of working on door hardware in the means of egress. An extensive discussion will also be lead on “what did you know, and when did you know it.” While this course should in no way be construed as legal advice, much knowledge will be gained during the lively discussion and debate among your peers! You may even rethink some of your current business practices by the time class is over. NJ Locksmiths who check the appropriate box on the registration form and include the additional $20.00 will receive a 8.0 CEU certificate for their 2019 NJ State Locksmith License renewal. Students must bring their NJ State License to class to receive their CEUs.
A GPLA certificate suitable for framing will be awarded to each student.
