Learn More About Our Training Mission
UK Detailing Academy is the result of a collective vision to provide advanced and structured detailing training to those seeking a career in detailing or looking to expand their current business.
Since inception in 2016, we have aimed to eliminate the issues we commonly see with detailing instruction – such as; product bias, self-serving promotion, and “have a go” detailer-come-trainers. Courses are designed and planned from the ground up to give you all the information and skills you need to grow and excel in your career, using the latest techniques, chemical knowledge, and equipment. We focus not only on the practical skills, but also on understanding the theory that underpins those skills, so you know not only why something works, but why something may not be working.
We also offer a range of business and marketing courses that complement the technical foundation of our detailing training, and are crucial for the commercial success of a car care operation.
Our main aims are:
- To enhance a career in detailing as a recognised career path for school and college leavers.
- Unify standards across the industry with the goal of a national recognised qualification framework.
- Provide a clearly identifiable badge of quality the public can use to identify those who truly excel at their career.
