DID YOU KNOW THAT THE STATE OF ILLINOIS HAS THE MOST DIFFICULT LOCKSMITH STATE CERTIFICATION IN THE NATION? DID YOU KNOW THAT GOOGLE WILL NOT LIST YOUR LOCKSMITH COMPANY IN ILLINOIS, NOR RUN ADS FOR YOU, UNLESS YOU HAVE A CERTIFIED LOCKSMITH EMPLOYED AT EACH LOCATION?
How much money are you leaving on the table? With so many different locksmith opportunities available (electronic access cards, closed circuit television, sophisticated safes, keyless automotive entries), the sky's the limit for your success. But — you have to first pass the exam!
