Dane Sparks and Andy Jones
We have a team of Locksmiths led by Dane Sparks and Andy Jones. Dane manages the day to day keying requirements of our customers and is responsible for managing the workshop operations.Dane completed his apprenticeship with Security & Key and has moved up through the ranks so to speak and is in a unique position to understand all operational areas.
Andy Jones is our leading qualified Locksmith and is responsible for the Service Work.Unless you come to our workshop it is likely Andy will be the face of Security & Key that you will see. Andy is joined by Apprentice Locksmiths in training while he is on the road.Realising that Western Australia is desperately short of qualified Locksmiths SKD have been committed to training and continue to invest heavily in the training of future locksmiths through the apprenticeship program. Locksmith requirements and standards vary greatly around the world. The Master Locksmiths Association of Australia is committed to ensuring all future generations of Australian Locksmiths are providing customers with a professional trade experience.This philosophy fits with SKD’s vision of a professional experience when calling on our services. On average in Western Australia only 5 people per year will complete their Locksmith trade qualification. It is unfortunate that this then
results in well meaning ‘handymen’ taking on work in which they are neither trained nor qualified and have no licence to operate in Western Australia. Unintentionally these people can put members of the public at risk, simply because they do not fully understand all of the compliance and operational standards that are required for different situations.
