AF Courses: Detail What You Bring

Our very own in-house master detailers head up a number of courses out of our state-of-the-art Detailing Academy in Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire. The site covers more than 4,000 square feet and is home to two specialist, fully-equipped detailing bays that have been designed specifically to showcase every aspect of a full vehicle detail.


Our Detail What You Bring course is an intimate offering that allows you to learn the art of detailing on your own pride and joy. This one-to-one detailing course allows you to fully soak up the detailer training provided. You and one of our master detailers will work together to methodically go through each step of the detailing process in depth, beginning with the wheels and engine bay and taking it right through the paint correct and finishing stages. All while working on your own vehicle! Not only will you drive home with all the knowledge and skills you've learned during the day, your vehicle will never have looked so good doing so!


During the day, one of our master detailers will work with you and guide you through every aspect of a full detail. You will start with the wash stages of both the wheels and the engine bay, moving onto paintwork, trims, as well as the interior and other materials. You'll then go on to tackle the decontamination stage and finishing stages, as well as any other intricate detailing aspects. You will be taken through each valeting stage in depth on your own vehicle, with explanations on products as to why and how they're used. Naturally, products will be specific to your vehicle's paintwork colour or finish, along with the wheels, but our master detailer is at your disposal for the day so ask away if there's anything more you'd like to know in regards to other paint colours and finishes. We will essentially show you everything you need to know to put your vehicle through a full detail. As you can imagine, there is a lot to cover, so do make sure you're on time for the course. The focus of the day is not necessarily to get your whole car done, but to train you up on every stage so you can go on to apply that knowledge and new-found skill set.


Once you've completed our Detail What You Bring course, you'll receive an Auto Finesse certificate certifying so. As you'll be on your own with one of our master detailers all day, you'll have the whole duration to ask any questions about what he's doing and also bring anything you want to the table. Food and drink is included. There's our very own coffee bar on site, as well as catering from a fixed menu - can be altered to suit dietary requirements and allergies. We've even got a shop on site so you can purchase some of the products you've used and learned about during your day.
