Locksmiths in Georgia are often in high demand, and this year is no exception.
That’s according to a report from the Georgia Association of Professional and Occupational Therapists.
The organization released its latest rankings of the top locksmith companies in the state, with the Top 100 locksmith in Georgia ranking as No. 2 and the Top 250 locksmith ranked at No. 3.
“We know that lock picking is a very important skill for many employers, and it’s critical for the well-being of all Georgia workers,” said Jessica S. Anderson, CEO of the association.
“This report confirms that our locksmith certification is a top-notch credential for those who are working at the job they love.”
The group, which also includes locksmith instructors and other professionals, uses its ratings to gauge lock picking skill levels across the state.
The list includes the top 100 locks in Georgia, with each lock ranked based on its skill level and certification.
For instance, the highest rated locksmith was in Georgia’s capital city of Athens, which ranked at the top of the list.
But it ranked No. 5 in Georgia for locksmith certifications in its own state.
“Georgia has a very strong and vibrant locksmith industry, and its not surprising that a lot of locksmith employers have been eager to find new recruits,” said Anderson.
“If you’re a locksmith, you have to be very diligent about what you do.
We all want to be doing the right things to ensure that we’re creating the best possible experience for our clients.”
The association also notes that there are other aspects to consider when hiring a lockscreen or other professional locksmith.
The lockscreen, which is typically used for identification, can cost up to $10,000 and takes up to a year to complete.
“A lockscreen can be a little intimidating for many of our customers, and many people don’t have the time or the resources to complete the installation,” said Dr. Elizabeth W. Taylor, a certified lockscreen installer who also works at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Locksmith certifying service providers are available to help individuals and businesses prepare for the new season. “
While a locksaw is an important tool for lockscreen installation, the cost is not a big concern for many locksmith customers.”
