The Finnish Master Locksmith Guild

The Finnish Master Locksmith Guild was established in 2002. Today it has almost 30 members, most of them Master Locksmiths who have passed the  Master Locskmith Specialist Qualification and specialist members who have been inivited to the Guild.

First time Specialist Qualification for Locksmiths was published in 1995. Next year two very skilled locksmiths passed the examination and a new group of professionals, Master Locksmiths, was born in Finland.
Getting a certificate is not a piece of cake. Qualified master locksmith in Finland has to have a wide experience in all sectors of physical protection and electronic security to pass an examination.  He is a true professional who can supervise other skilled locksmiths.
During the following years some locksmiths passed the examination too, and year 2002 was a suitable time to form a new association, Master Locksmith Guild. Charter of foundation was signed in June and the Guild was registered in December. Next March all 12 certificated master locksmiths were members of the Guild.

The Master Locksmith Specialist Qualification is the highest vocational qualification a person working in the locking business can perform.

The Guild works in close association with FSCA. The office of FSCA takes care of the current matters as well as the secretarial matters of the Guild. The Guild on the other hand takes care of some matters that have earlier been the responsibility of FSCA, e.g. Finnish lock tests.
