Although many successful detailers have gained their knowledge by the method of “learning by doing” we don’t believe there is a substitute for one-on-one hands on training. Here at Smart Detailing University we don’t limit our education on the techinical topics, we believe that the complete experience is part of the learning and education. For those that are interested in learning specific techniques, we have an extensive library of free educational videos on YouTube. 

We do not have any in house financing options. We accept payments in the form of any major credit card or Paypal.

Our 5 Day Master Training Course and our DIY – Intro to Buffing & Polishing Class are only limited to no more than 10 students to ensure the optimal one-on-one training.
