SCEC Locksmith Services

When searching for a locksmith to carry out a service, a business in Australia that displays a SCEC certification means that they provide an outstanding quality of services. This is because they are credible and meet the requirements to work discreetly in maximum-security and defence sectors of government.

SCEC or Security Construction and Equipment Committee, is one of the most strict certifications that a locksmith company can obtain. The certification shows that the locksmith is thoroughly qualified, successfully completing a rigorous ASIO/T4 training program with the approval of the government and police, to have a maximum-security clearance.

As we are a SCEC endorsed locksmith, we strive to make the South-East Queensland community feel more secure in their homes and businesses. Contact us today to find out more on all of our locksmith services.
