Level 2


Continue your development


For existing candidates: Expanding upon the foundational knowledge gained in Level One, you will delve into advanced machine polishing and cleaning techniques, propelling your detailing career, skills, and service offerrings to new heights. Seasoned valeters and detailers who feel confident in their proficiency aligned with Level One’s curriculum may qualify to directly access this level – and can contact us to discuss fast tracking. Such candidates can demonstrate their qualification by successfully passing our Level One assessment with a comprehensive understanding. This will also enable us to spot any potential gaps which may need filling.

This advanced level has a primary goal of correction technique, and introduces a range of machines, including forced rotation dual action polishers and various iterations of dual action polishers, characterized by their throw and size. Exploration extends to diverse pad types, heavy cutting options, and meticulous defect identification, enabling precise assessment and rectification techniques.

Further, interior detailing is elevated with an emphasis on high-yield services employing “dry” steam cleaning techniques, effective odour elimination, comprehensive leather protection and treatment protocols, and targeted stain removal utilizing specialized chemistry. The inclusion of small area sanding and isolated correction techniques adds a high end specialiam to this level, empowering you to achieve remarkable results even in cases of seemingly irreparable damage.
