Description

Friday, April 6th: 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM | Class will be held in Room 33

We plan to educate the locksmith community on the following:

  1. What is out there now? Different types of new remotes and proxy keys for late model popular makes and models including the latest 2017-2018 models.
  2. Interchangeability and compatibility of OEM remotes. This information will reduce the cost of doing business, as it reduces the inventory for automotive professionals (i.e. what to keep in stock, what is a waste of space and money).
  3. How to reuse and salvage remotes and smart keys. It’s a common misconception that used remotes or previously programmed smart keys are just junk and can’t be reused. We will show which and how to reuse popular remotes. Some used remotes lock and some don’t, you just have to learn about the different types.
  4. Parts for remotes and repairs. This part of our presentation may be especially valuable for locksmiths who own a shop or have face-to face-contact with customers.
  5. If time allows we can also briefly go over online marketing for local businesses. Most of it is available for free. We will provide handouts and electronic versions of the presentation to the interested professionals.

Saturday, April 7th: 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM | Class will be held in Room 33

We plan to educate the locksmith community on the following:

  1. What is out there now? Different types of new remotes and proxy keys for late model popular makes and models including the latest 2017-2018 models.
  2. Interchangeability and compatibility of OEM remotes. This information will reduce the cost of doing business, as it reduces the inventory for automotive professionals (i.e. what to keep in stock, what is a waste of space and money).
  3. How to reuse and salvage remotes and smart keys. It’s a common misconception that used remotes or previously programmed smart keys are just junk and can’t be reused. We will show which and how to reuse popular remotes. Some used remotes lock and some don’t, you just have to learn about the different types.
  4. Parts for remotes and repairs. This part of our presentation may be especially valuable for locksmiths who own a shop or have face-to face-contact with customers.
  5. If time allows we can also briefly go over online marketing for local businesses. Most of it is available for free. We will provide handouts and electronic versions of the presentation to the interested professionals.
