Auto Detailing School
If your primary purpose in attending our Auto Detailing School is to learn the ropes about successfully operating your own business, you’re going to have to get your hands dirty! We’re not here to show you some videos, or have you memorize details from an outdated workbook, or deaden your mind with boring tutorials. The entire weekend you will be amazed with what you learn. Whether you have been in business for several years or just starting out our goal is to exceed your expectations. And according to our student testimonials we consistently accomplish that goal.
If you’re attending a Detail King Auto Detailing Training Seminar, you’re going to actually detail a designated vehicle from tires to rooftop — all with the assistance of our certified trainers, Detail King team members and your fellow seminar students. You will be assigned to a specific vehicle along with some of the other students and a team of Detail King Certified Trainers. You will actually be detailing a pre owned vehicle that has swirls in the paint, oxidation, water spots etc. The interior will be extra dirty with soiled carpets, dirty leather, stained cloth seats, horrible headliners and miserable windows and mirrors. Your goal is to turn that dirty, dull, and stinky vehicle into a front line ready vehicle, you will actually help increase the value of that vehicle by several hundred dollars. What this all means is you will learn how to knock your customers socks off!
Our Technician Program training seminars are held almost every month. Day one is all classroom training, the intent is to teach you how to start, operate and grow an auto detailing business, basically how to run an auto detailing business. This is where you will learn about developing a sound business plan. You will also learn how to determine the demand in your area and what type of location you should choose or be a mobile operator. The course will also review the types of permits and licenses you may need. We will focus much of the Marketing & Advertising segments on how to Brand your business through the use of a web site and using the various popular social media channels. Be sure to check out our all new bigger and better Detail King Classroom where the first day of our 2 day seminar is held.
Day two you’ll have the opportunity to try out all of the various auto detailing equipment offerings and the many different detailing products and accessories that we offer at Detail King. This is where the rubber meets the road, with our certified auto detailing trainers showing you the proper methods and procedures for using high speed buffers, orbital polishers, interior carpet extractors, detailing brushes, microfiber towels and just about everything else you would need to make a dull and dirty car look new again.
To get an idea of the course agenda, take a look at the detailed curriculum offered on Day 1 and the training you will undergo on Day 2.
Why Choose Detail King for Auto Detailing Training?
What makes us qualified to dispense all this knowledge and on-the-job training? First off, Nick Vacco, our president and founder, has been conducting car detailing training seminars since 2001, educating more than 1,000 students. Today, a staff of certified instructors with more than 70 years of combined experience assists him.
Further, our programs and curriculums are approved by the Pennsylvania State Board Of Education. All of our graduates are awarded a framed “Diploma” after completing the course from Detail King Auto Detailing Training Institute LLC. That’s a far cry from the “certificate of completion” offered by other training programs. Any Tom, Dick or Harry can offer that. But very few can honestly say their programs and curriculum have been approved and certified by their state. And even fewer can match our extensive knowledge and auto detailing industry experience.
If you’re still hesitant about signing up for one of our auto detailing seminars, here’s what we’d like you to do. Shop around. Ask questions. For instance, ask how long have you been in business? Are you a private licensed school approved by your state? Upon completion of your program do I receive a diploma or just a certificate of completion? It’s your future, and starting off with a qualified auto detailing training program is absolutely essential to your success.
All Detail King Graduates will receive a special Detail King Certified eLogo that you can place on your web site. When your customers click on it, it will connect to a special landing page on our web site that explains that you have been Certified by Detail King! This will help you book more appointments.
