Training

I'm wanting to improve my detailing skills and really begin to lean paint correction skills. Can anyone recommend anywhere to relieve professional training? Preferably within the Yorkshire region?

Andrew

Andrew I wouldn't bother mate, get yourself a polisher and a scrap bonnet and have a go yourself. A pro would be able to show you the ropes but you are still going to want to practice practice practice.
I asked a load of questions on here, watched a bunch of videos and then just got stuck it.

Its a nice idea.

There is an NVQ in car valletting to two levels so presumably there are training courses available. The NVQ is organised through City and Guilds.

Matt (AKA stangalang on here) trading under Obsidian Detailing based in Saddleworth does one to one training and is a great professional. I did a day with him and it gave me the confidence to put a DA on a new car....lol. See some of his work under The Studio and The Showroom its outstanding.

I agree you can learn a lot from videos and demos but good training from someone like Matt (stangalang) will give you individual feedback on your technique and help overcoming issues and understanding what you are trying to achieve with each stage. But it is really down to how you like to learn (and what your budget is)!

How does Stangalang do his training? Structured days or lessons as required?

I've managed to get myself a job one day a week working with a mobile valeter so hopefully I can learn on the job.
