There’s no question you need education and training to successfully operate in any trade or profession, whether you’re studying to be a doctor, lawyer, construction worker or auto detailer.
And don’t think for a moment that your auto detailing customers aren’t interested in where you obtained your skills and knowledge. Just as you want assurances that the doctor performing surgery on you has a medical degree, your customers want to know that you have received auto detailing training from a private licensed school with a curriculum approved by the State of Pennsylvania.
With a framed diploma awarded at ceremonies marking the end of the Detail King training program, graduates now have tangible proof that they went to school in order to learn the proper way to satisfy your customers’ needs. Being a graduate from our auto detailing school should be a benefit that extends far beyond what the on-the-job training detailer has to offer. We leave no stone unturned when it comes to our hands-on training.
Here at Detail King, our auto detailing training program begins with the basics — things you must know in lieu of grabbing a rag and bucket of soapy water and going at it. First off, it’s important to know which detailing tools are available to you as well as how to use them properly, when to use them and where to use them. It’s also wise to know what precautions you must take before starting to work with these tools, and our auto-detailing training program will show you how.

And, we teach you to respect these chemicals in safety classes presented by our staff.
On the business side, we teach our students how to determine what to Continue reading…

What’s the difference between auto detailing and auto reconditioning? The simple answer is this: Auto detailing is the complete cleaning and preservation of a vehicle. Auto reconditioning takes that concept further, stopping just shy of total auto restoration.
