About Auto Detailing

Auto detailing is an amazing business opportunity with features and benefits that makes car care, a career opportunity worth investigating.

We know there are many choices when it comes to getting trained and certified in the automotive appearance business. However, there are many “so called” schools and trainers that offer nothing more than deception, misleading information, and education that only ends up setting you up for failure and disappointment.

My name is Mel Craig. I’ve been in the auto detailing, car care and automotive appearance business for now, almost 50 years. I want to set the record straight on what your training programs should offer you to ensure you have a chance at success in a very competitive business.

Let me start by saying there is nothing like hands on training and here at The Ding King and The Detailing Pros, we make sure you get the training you’re looking for in a State approved vocational program. This means you’ve been trained “legally and professionally” by some of the best in the industry, in a real working detailing shop and not some set up classroom environment. This is what hands-on training is all about.

Did you know that these types of training and professional certification schools need to be approved by BPPVE, (Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education) which is of course a US Government run program?

When you attend anyone of our training programs, we are a State Accredited and Licensed Training Facility. This means that when you get your certification, its real, its legit and it’s a certification you can truly be proud of.

Car Care Training
Auto Detail Training

There are very few of these types of auto detailing training schools here in the USA. Why? because they do not have the credentials through the US Government or their State Certification Vocational Programs to offer you a real certification or a real credential for completing your course or training programs.

Another fact in car care is there are many types of tools, supplies and chemicals needed to be a success in car care. There are many, many variables in paint, vehicle conditions, climates, and environments. This means that there is no “One Product” that works in all conditions. This is where you’re training truly makes a huge difference and, in our training programs, we introduce you to all the differences in the supplies, products and tools you may need to have total success.

When it comes to deciding on who, and where, to take your training class or get the training you need to truly be a success it’s important to follow the guidelines I’ve listed below.

What to look for first:

  1. Does your school or training facility have Evidence of accreditation?
  2. What are they offering you for the fees they are charging?
  3. Does the training have an official training curriculum?
  4. Are you being trained with selections and choices of tools, supplies and chemicals?
  5. Are you going to receive your official training manuals along with your training?
  6. Are you being trained in a certified, and real working training facility?
  7. Are you being trained by a State certified training professional?
  8. Is your instructor experienced in training and dealing with multiple students?
  9. Does your instructor have evidence of his ability to train you to success?
  10. Does your school and your instructor have ongoing support after training?
  11. A copy of the institution’s catalog and legal enrollment agreement before paying?
  12. Does the school comply with the requirements of the Student Tuition Recovery Fund?
  13. Is the school recognized by the Unites States as an “Accredited School?
  14. Are they approved by the BPPVE, (Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education)?
  15. We instruct you on many types of chemicals, tools and supplies to help you make the right decisions on what you’ll need going into your new or existing business.
