This annual award honours the memory of the late John Andrew who was the Association's inaugural Life Member and a winner of the A.L. Chantry Memorial Award for the Pursuit of Excellence. Eligible apprentices employed by MLAA Business members in Australia and New Zealand are invited to participate.
The test covers Picking, Impressioning, Lockfitting, Master Keying and General Knowledge.
LSC is proud to be a major supporter of the Award. The winner (and their master) will once again win a trip to Italy and Germany to visit the Silca & ABUS factories respectively.
