Certified Master Locksmith

When we sit down and talk about investing our hard earned dollars the majority of us would want to be talking to an individual who posses a great knowledge in their field.  A Certified Financial Planner (CFP) has taken a multitude of classes and test in order to demonstrate that they have a solid background in finance.  A lawyer passes the BAR exam, a contractor must pass a test with the state license board, and a locksmith who chooses to demonstrate proficiency will become a Certified Master Locksmith.

Certified Master Locksmith (CML)

The highest level of locksmith certification is Certified Master Locksmith (CML).  A Certified Master Locksmith has reached the highest level of Associated Locksmiths of America (ALOA) Proficiency Registration Program and has successfully demonstrated proficiency in ninety percent of the available categories of the Proficiency Registration Program.  A CML has advanced knowledge of most areas of locksmithing and electronic security.
