Brandon Woo’s Detailing Qualifications:

Teaching Car Detailing

Car detailing comes down to the fundamentals of proper technique, product, and skill. To avoid wasting time or money:

  • avoid consumerism: purchasing the right products and tools are the first steps, you need to practice the right skill and technique
  • preparation of the vehicle surface is essential: decontaminating, polishing, and cleaning lead to better protective results
  • always keep an honest & open perspective: there is no “correct” or definite way of detailing, we always take cross industry practices for a better result and avoid improper harmful practices
  • find something you like and use it: product recommendations should work and live up to the hype, avoid “flavor of the month” products or techniques, paying a little more for abetter product is always worth it.

Class Info: For the individual who wants to advance their skill at any level and learn how to detail their vehicle. This is intensive, yet basic explanation of a base detail. This does not explain how to run a detailing business, tackle every detailing problem, or provide a show car shine at the end of the day. You will work side by side a madman and be engulfed by a huge stream of information. Best for individuals with a history of detailing their vehicles.

How do I schedule a class or training day?
