Day 3: Ceramic Coating

Unfortunately, there is a lot of overblown hype and dis-information in the coating world. There are new (re-branded) coating brands that pop up all of the time, created by people with marketing backgrounds…not high-level detailing. Additionally, there are way too many “forum experts” on the subject, or those who try to teach and / or sell coatings on YouTube when they don’t do it for a living themselves. There is a big difference in understanding between hobbyists and full-time professional detailers who operate at the highest level of the trade, and as a part of our training, we strip away the hype and marketing-speak, and teach you what is really important! 

Limited to just 4 students per class, we will focus on a variety of classroom topics and discussions, as well as hands-on coating application on real cars (not just test hoods!).

Coating classroom session. 1/2 day:

  • Background / history of coatings
  • State of the industry
  • Coatings vs…
  • Prepping the vehicle for coating
  • Proper maintenance afterwards
  • How to sell coatings / pricing
  • Coating and PPF (paint protection film)
  • Matte / satin finishes
  • Coating myths (and there are a LOT of them!)
  • What to do when it is time to re-coat
  • How long do coatings really last?
  • How important is coating hardness ratings?
  • Warranties?

Coating hands-on training. 1/2 day:

  • We will do a full ceramic coating application on our class car that we did paint correction on days 1 and 2. Depending on the specific vehicle we have in for class, and the amount of time, we will at least perform a full-body coating, and perhaps plastic trim and glass coating as well. All students will get plenty of hands-on experience with applying coatings to gain knowledge and experience.

Upon completion of the course, you will have gained a very in-depth education on automotive coating processes. Whether you are an automotive enthusiast, aspiring detailer, or seasoned professional, you will find that the ESOTERIC Ceramic Coating Training provides the best education in the industry.

Elite Detailer Academy – Full Details

PROVEN DETAILING SOLUTIONS FROM YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

Over the years of writing detailing articles and educational material, we received countless requests for auto detailing training from professional detailers that were interested in stepping up their paint correction skills. Given that demand, I established the ESOTERIC Elite Detailer Academy where detailers from around the world can attend and learn not only the most modern and responsible paint correction techniques, but they will also be trained on a wide variety of products and tools that they might not have had had exposure to otherwise. 

This intensive 2-day course will be held regularly at the beautiful ESOTERIC – Fine Auto Finishing headquarters in New Albany (Columbus), Ohio.

The Elite Detailer course is recommended for both seasoned veterans, and those new to machine-polishing. The class is limited to just 5 students and is taught by a Master Detailer who still actively perfects cars using modern tools, products, and techniques. 

While predominantly attended by new detailers, or those ready to start a detailing business, we also have plenty of students who have been detailing for many years but wish to improve their skillsets.

The small-class setting allows us to closely monitor and personally educate each individual student, and when complete, you will have the machine-polishing skills to bring a car’s finish to the next level and beyond. 

Your complete guide to mastering paint polishing:

  • ½ day of comprehensive classroom time discussing a variety of Detailing Subjects, Product Recommendations, and Pad / Polish combinations.
  • 1 ½ days of hands-on machine-polishing
  • Curated product recommendations for all areas of detailing
  • Hands-on training and familiarity with a variety of Rupes D/A polishing machines
  • Process-development for effective and efficient paint correction
  • How to safely polish complex curves, contours, and edges
  • Introduction to compounding (heavy defect removal).
  • We will complete a paint correction detail on day 2
  • Training to be conducted by Todd Cooperider, Founder of ESOTERIC, and DJ Mayo of DJ Mayo Studios
  • Certificate of Completion
  • Student Wholesale Discount Program from EsotericCarCare.com
  • Recommended for both seasoned veterans, and those new to machine-polishing
  • Limited to 5 students per class
