The Institutional Locksmith Certification Program (ILCP)
is a series of exams that focuses on the unique character of institutional locksmithing.

    The ILCP consists of three levels of certification:

  • Level 1: Certified Institutional Locksmith (CIL)
  • Level 2: Certified Journeyman Institutional Locksmith (CJIL)
  • Level 3: Certified Master Institutional Locksmith (CMIL)

To earn the Certified Institutional Locksmith (CIL) designation the participant must pass a mandatory exam of approximately 250 questions that will measure a participant's knowledge of general locksmithing. Some of the subject areas include lockset functions and finishes, lock by-pass methods, life safety codes, basic master keying, ADA, warning signage,key ID and key codes. There are not any manufacturer "brand-specific" questions on the CIL exam.

The CJIL and the CMIL are advanced levels, and will also require the participant to have a specific amount of "years of experience" as an institutional locksmith or related field.

To earn the Certified Journeyman Institutional Locksmith (CJIL) designation the participant must pass an "advanced" mandatory exam and elective exams that cover in-depth, manufacturer specific (e.g. Schlage, Corbin Russwin, Yale) subjects and institutional environment (e.g. university, hospital, detention)issues. These exams reflect the security products and occupational circumstances that institutional locksmiths encounter on a regular daily basis.

To earn the Certified Master Institutional Locksmith (CMIL) designation the participant will have to pass additional elective exams not taken to earn the CJIL. The CJIL and the CMIL are advanced levels, and will also require the participant to have a specific amount of "years of experience" as an institutional locksmith.

The price for the standard ILCP test will be $50.00 for ILA members and $100.00 for Non-members


The price for the On-Line ILCP test will be $75.00 for ILA members and $175.00 for Non-members

NOTE: If the test location charges a fee for space rental the fees may be increased accordingly.
