    Call Andre at,

    1-800-869-3011 x1244



    These are the MOST HANDS-ON TRAINING classes on Planet Earth.


    My classes are also the most photo-documented classes on Planet Earth showing and proving that instead of sitting in chairs - you are on your feet working on multiple, multiple cars.

    The only time you GET to sit - is a very short and quick lunch break. Like 20 to 30 minutes. That's it. If you really want to get your hands on tools and products then there's simply no time for sitting.




    The price for this class is $1,495.00 that's basically $500.00 per day.



    If you want to sit more and enjoy a long, catered breakfast and lunch - look for a different class.

    Here's Christabel's review for the 3-day class she took here at Autogeek in Stuart, Florida



    Quote Originally Posted by Detailchick View Post

    Hi, this is Cristabel and I completed Mike's 3-day Autogeek Detailing Boot camp.

    I have detailed for a while now about 9 years , I started by learning the wrong way in dealerships but this was something I knew I liked from the start, I became obsessed with learning more and more. Soon I was picking up things as time passed by. I tried many things out but life always brings me back to detailing.

    Meeting Mike Phillips was on my bucket list, Mike taught me more about detailing through all those years of being on the forum (since 2012) than anybody else did.

    I have read many of his articles, books, videos and loved his thorough explanations etc. He was my teacher before he was my teacher. So to me there were no other detailing classes to compare to what Mike's class could offer me.

    Mike's class was an awesome experience, It's extremely hands on and full of tips, tricks, and techniques.

    To know how to detail you don't only need to know how to do it, you need to have hands on experience and believe me you will get it here. I wish I took this class many years ago, it would of saved me a lot of time and money.

    If you are new to detailing take the shortcut I didn't take believe me you will learn so many things in 3 days that can take you years to figure out on your own.

    Even if you don't plan on making a business of detailing but love cars it's worth it, you will learn everything you need to know.

    If you already have detailing experience trust me you will still love the experience, and will pick something new up. If you are an over-thinker like me you will learn about time management, how to speak to customers, customer expectations, try out new products, tools etc., you get to learn from Mike and be around people that speak the detailing language.

    Detailing can be a money pit sometimes, I don't know how much I've spent just on trying things out.. a new polisher, polish, compound, products, tools etc.. most of the time I don't even finish what I buy, because I'm on to the next .

    Imagine if you got to try out thousands of dollars worth of the best machines, products, pads, tools etc. for every level of detailing before choosing what you like! I don't know where else you get to do that!

    We worked our way from entry level DA's all the way to rotary's, for some cars we had-free-for-all which we got to try out the machines we wanted, I got my hands on the new Griots, Rupes Nano, Flex Cordless machines etc.

    Marcus Parsley from IGL was nice enough to educate us on ceramic coatings and we applied them to a few cars.

    We worked on amazing cars which we wet sanded by hand and by machine, compounded, polished, did one-step polishing, did headlight restoration, steam cleaned, used the carpet extractor, did engine bay cleaning etc.

    Are you guys still reading this?

    lol I don't know if I'm getting my point across but we did a lot in 3 days and it's money well spent!

    Don't pay to sit down, you can do that at home for free.

    I don't want to end this review without thanking the man the myth the legend Mike Phillips. Thank You for everything you do, for taking your time to Help and educate us in the industry, you make the world a better place, and most of all for offering this class that has helped me gain the confidence to elevate my detailing to a higher level.

    I could keep going but as Mike would say

    "You could've spent all of that time working on a car" lol


    Thank you Detail Chick!

    I'm working on the cars for this class right now. I have some really nice training cars confirmed. As I get pictures I'll start to share.

    We do have an original paint 1968 Cadillac Eldorado!





    For this car we'll be learning,

    1. How to restore and protect vinyl with 303 products
    2. How to do the #7 Rub Down Technique
    3. How to do Production Detailing
    4. How to machine polish chrome
    5. How to machine clean vinyl
    6. How to machine clean tires



    And depending upon the interior? We may use for the interior detailing class. Might also use it for GLASS polishing.

    Won't know until I see the car in person.
