Whether you are an IT network engineer, an electrician, a locksmith or a recent graduate, a career in security system technology is just a step away. When you enter the Kenton Brothers Apprenticeship Program, you embark on a career of rewarding life-long learning that begins with a complete immersion in the world of security systems, networking engineering and mechanical locking systems.

Kenton Brothers Professional Apprenticeship in Commercial Security Systems

As an apprentice you will learn a job or skill by working for a fixed period of time for someone who is very good at that job or skill. Not just good – our technicians are experts in the commercial security field. This practical experience is priceless learning, and you get paid for it.

In the commercial security technology field there is no education like real world hands on education. To complete the Kenton Brothers professional Apprenticeship Program, you will obtain hours of logged, hands on education in a real-world environment.  You will also complete the necessary classroom training.

Real-World Training

The Kenton Brothers Professional Apprenticeship Program consists of a minimum of one year of on-the-job, hands-on learning in the skills of a locksmith, access control and CCTV professionals. An apprentice will work alongside one of the many skilled workers already meeting the Kenton Brothers’ standards. They must show continuous growth and ability to diagnose, problem solve and implement in these areas, as well as an evolving business maturity.

Classroom Education

Our vocational apprentice participants are required to successfully complete and obtain a certificate of completion of the professional locksmith course KBU 101. One must also successfully complete and obtain a certificate of completion of at least one of any of the other KBU-designated programs. An apprentice will also complete at least 3 online training and 2 classroom training opportunities provided by our partner manufacturers.

After the successful completion of both the hands-on training requirements and the classroom education requirements, an evaluation and recommendation will be made to move the apprentice to the next level of security professional classification.
