James “Jim” Ashley


Started in the electronics field in 1978 while taking classes from George Mann, the author of the textbooks for ITT Tech at the time. He got his start in the safe and lock industry in 1986 while stationed at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, TX., volunteering as an apprentice for B&P Lock Shop. James is an educational sponge, and being a musician is the only thing that can eclipse his love for electronics and technology. He started Ashley Safe & Security in 2001 in Indianapolis, IN and has expanded his coverage area into 3 states. He is 3-term President of Associated Locksmiths of Indiana. In addition to assisting in the development of the Electronics program for ALOA, he has been certified as a Microsoft Technology Associate, and has been CompTIA A+ Certified.   James joined the Lockmasters Instructor Team in the fall of 2023 as our Access Control Technical Instructor.
