Level 1

£1,140.00

Level One is ideal for those just about to enter the detailing industry, or those who wish to reset, update, and refresh their skills. The aim is to familiarise the candidate with the processes and maintenance of vehicles from a professional and business view, teaching the foundations of correct vehicle cleaning up to the final familiarisation of entry-level dual action machine polishers. Business practices and health and safety are explored covering areas such as pricing, marketing, target clientele, SDS and environmental conformity. This is much more than just a “how to wash a car” course, and gives your business the best possible start, optimising it for success. Full course guide book, ongoing support and certification exam fee are all included in the cost.

The Level 1 Course is available as either a standard vehicle course, or alternatively a motorbike focused course. You can also book the Motorcycle Detailing 1 Day course as a bolt-on day, if you wish to cover both aspects.
