Mercedes DAS3 Immobilizer Training

Due to the overwhelming success of our Mercedes keymaking classes, we are proud to announce round one of The BMW Keymaking Course happening this November. Here is some of the feedback we received from the Mercedes class:

  • 100% of participants would recommend the class to other automotive locksmiths!
  • "Mercedes is not as hard as it used to be anymore."
    —Maher Eid, Lock Doctor, San Francisco, CA
  • "I loved that we had professionals teaching the class, they really knew their stuff. Last class I left not learning very much, not enough hands-on. This one was perfect."
    —Kevin Saxon, Ace Locksmith, Walled Lake, MI
  • "I definitely feel more confident going out in the field and being able to tackle these jobs. I couldn't ask for better instructors teaching the class."
    —Nate DeGraw, AAA Safe & Lock, Memphis, TN

The Basics:
Friday thru Sunday, November 9-11 at our Distribution Center in the Las Vegas area (Henderson, Nevada), each day between 8:30am-5pm. Lunch will be served on each day. A light breakfast, snacks, and drinks will also be available. Wi-fi will be available and cell phone service is excellent.

Class Size:
We are limited to just the first 30 participants and the class WILL fill quickly. If you are unable to add this class to your shopping cart, the class is full. Please call us and speak with Joel to be placed on a waiting list.

Finding Our Location:
Our address is 9 Sunset Way, Unit #100. It's a 20,000 square foot warehouse in the city of Henderson, Nevada. We are located around 10 minutes east of the McCarren Airport. Mapping apps usually get the last 1/8-mile wrong though. As you drive down Sunset WAY (not Road), you'll see a row of warehouses on your LEFT side with a sign that says "Green Valley Business Center". Turn left and we're the last warehouse on the right side.

Cancellation Policy:
The seats for this class are limited. If you cancel without enough notice, seats go unncessarily unfilled. Cancellations more than 2 weeks before the class will receive a 100% refund. Cancellations more than 1 week before the class will receive a 75% refund. Cancellations more than 2 days before the class will receive a 50% refund. Cancellations 2 days or less before the class will not receive a refund.

Please call or text Cary (American Key Supply) at 650-243-1784 or call Dustie (Instructor) at 888-366-BENZ for any more details.

By the end of the weekend, you will be confident not only in making keys but diagnosing and repairing all functions of the immobilizer systems on Mercedes. You will learn what not even Factory Mercedes Technicians know! Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned pro, you will walk away with a wealth of knowledge that you can immediately start making money with.
