Course Description:

Our Covert Entry course is a specialized class spanning two days of intense hands on experience for up to fifteen students. Our experience has been that Law Enforcement Agents, Technicians, Operators and International Travelers are generally not familiar with locks and related technology, so we begin from a zero knowledge-base in our training and advance as the students’ progress.


Tuition for the class is $550 per student. All necessary tools are provided for students during the training. Additionally, at the conclusion of the class each student will receive a custom training kit including custom entry/bypass tools and hardware to continue their practice and training after they have completed the course.

Tuition Includes:

  • Classroom Tools and Expendables (locks, picks and associated hardware)

  • Student Takeaway kit ($125+ value)

  • Breakfast and Lunch provided daily

  • Free Shuttle to/from Bradley Airport
