Training at West Midlands Car Detailing

We’re thrilled to be offering training courses suitable for different skill and knowledge levels.
Our aim is to pass on all of the knowledge and experience that we have built up from running our own detailing business. The training comes directly from those who have been there and done it and will provide sound and real-life experience not only on detailing itself, but also on what is needed to run a car detailing business.
All of our courses are carried out in person on-site at West Midlands Car Detailing and are run on a 1-2-1 basis to ensure you get dedicated time and access to the instructor.

Car detailing is a passion and requires dedication. We aim to pass on our passion and dedication to others to ensure that the detailing industry is full of quality, well-trained detailing businesses who put the car first every time.
