Course Overview

When picking a training program there are a few things you should consider:

Who are your training instructors?

Our team has a combined experience of over 45 years in the industry where they are still actively involved in running their own successful car detailing businesses. In other words you learn from the pros with real success, real life experience and passion for this industry (not your usual salesmen that are masked as trainers).

Why get professionally trained?

Some people know something but no one knows everything!  The great thing about learning is that it is never ending.  We are always evolving and adapting to overcome new challenges in our personal as well as professional lives.  Smart Detailing University provides hands on, one-to-one instruction both in the classroom as well as in our amazing training facility that is suited for both beginners and novices alike.  Even detailing professionals that have been in business for many years can benefit from our course.  As a Certified School, the Smart Detailing University course provides attendees with the certification and licensing necessary to start their own lucrative auto detailing businesses.

They are however taking better care of the vehicles they have because they know it may have to last them a while.


There are not many jobs or careers available, so it’s time to create your own opportunity. Some of today’s professionally trained auto detailers are making six figure incomes and keeping their nights and weekends free.


Make the right choice and take a look at what the auto detailing industry can offer you in a stable career and business opportunity. Act now by starting your very own auto detailing and reconditioning business today.



Why Professional Training is Necessary for Running a Successful Business ?
  • Improper use of buffers and polishers could result in damaged paint

  • Improper use of detailing chemicals could cause damage to the vehicle

  • Using the 10 steps incorrectly could result in lost time and money

  • Without professional training some of these steps may become difficult to perform

  • Lack of knowledge can usually result in poor work, upset customers and lost time and money.


"What I needed to change to take my business from where it is to where I want it to be. The hands on tools I learned with the trainers at SDU was extremely helpful, but what I could have never imagined is how important that in class marketing part was. Thank you SDU!"
