Professional Locksmiths of America
Bringing the Locksmith Community Together Through Fellowship, Training, and Integrity
Professional Locksmiths of America is the result of planning which began in February of 2002. Although there were a few other locksmith associations, many felt they were not a good fit for each and every locksmith, but rather catered to certain groups and specialties. As such, a group of locksmiths from across the country came together and formed Professional Locksmiths of America.
Professional Locksmiths of America was created to be an all inclusive locksmith association in which membership and training is available to all qualified individuals working or wanting to work in the locksmith industry. Professional Locksmiths of America offers various levels of membership, training, and certification comparable with other national locksmith associations.
Professional Locksmiths of American offers training and certification in the areas of both General Locksmithing and Automotive Locksmithing. Courses for credit and testing may be conducted online as it is difficult for busy working adults to travel. (Tests for certification levels may require supervision by a PROLOA approved proctor).
