Detailing course

Hi there,

I'm a weekend warrior detailer with a reasonable amount of knowledge and skill. I want to know more and I want to improve my skills in detailing. I would like to detail for a living. In order to further my knowledge/skill set, I'm thinking of doing a course. I assume there are good and bad courses out there. Would any of you guys out there be able to point me in the right direction? I would be grateful for your help. Also, is it essential to have a qualification at the end of the course? Thanks guys.

I follow Perfectionvalet on twitter and he's just opened a premises and is offering courses.
No clue as to the quality but given his experience and client base, I reckon they'd be quite good.

Have a look at Autobrite - they do back to basic course as well as 1 2 1 training.

Second Autobrite.

Depending on your budget you could do the Back to Basics Course or spend a full day/multiple days with their top valeters.

I spent a day with Robin and I learnt an immense amount of advanced skills.

Depends of course where you are based.
Matt at Obsidian Detailing, Saddleworth near to Oldham is a Master at the art of Detailing and does 1>1 training courses.
I did his course a few years ago and was very impressed
