My journey into car detailing started when I wanted to improve how I polished panels, from there I discovered a vibrant detailing scene around the world which has led me on a journey of discovery in areas of car care I never knew existed.

Detailing is vast. It is not just process driven, it is all about understanding the different surfaces on a car and how you clean them properly, what you should use to clean them, how you improve the appearance of these surfaces, and how you can protect them going forward. There is also a thriving industry which makes all this possible, focused on understanding what is on offer and what products perform best.

I have created a course that takes all the information I have learned in the five years since I entered the world of car detailing and lays it out in a structured course which is easy to understand and fun.

After spending so much time growing a successful detailing channel on YouTube, Forensic Detailing, I also understand what areas people struggle with, the anxiety around machine polishing a car for the first time or feeling overwhelmed by all the jargon! This course will guide you through all areas of detailing and the knowledge gained will provide a platform for you to be able to confidently detail any car - your own or a clients.
