It all began with a dream to merge cutting-edge detailing solutions with hands-on detailing training. During our time working in the auto detailing industry, we unfortunately witnessed an obscene amount of preventable damage caused by process error and lack of education in the auto detailing world. Sadly, this is still common throughout much of the industry to this day.
Throughout nearly 50 years combined between us working in retail and dealerships, we saw firsthand just how much conflicting information there was around auto detailing. We read information from detailers both offline and online, insisting you must spend valuable time and money trying out their methods for yourself, all with limited success for the client.
It wasn't long before we identified this large gap in the industry with regards to trade school education and certification within the auto detailing training industry. For us, we understand that you must prove your methods and quantify your results; "put your money where your mouth is" so to speak! Which is why we favour hands-on training above all other methods.
Together, we established AUTOPRO Detailing Training, a company dedicated to providing cutting-edge solutions and professional detailing training for the average Joe (or Jane!). Through our six unique detailing training courses, we educate and train auto enthusiasts how to detail cars, providing real-life hands-on experience using our equipment, tools and products.
Student satisfaction is our absolute TOP priority. There's nothing you can't learn with AUTOPRO Detailing Training.
We are proud to offer our certified detailing training services in the heart of Victoria, BC.
AUTOPRO Detailing Training is run by car lovers who are obsessed with auto detailing.
