    Re: I Just passed all 10 of my IDA exams!!!!!!

    Congrats I wanna do this one day, had no idea there were 10 exams, and you have to do a hands on test still, good luck on phase 2. I need to research how much I'd need to read up on to be able to even attempt to take these. I like they give you 2 attempts at each exam lol. So you take them online and it's an ethic system that you don't have outside help, and you only use reference material? So like, you can write down as much as you can think of on the 10 subjects then use that during the tests? I would laugh at the thought of online testing and relying on an "honor system" for most certifications. But Detailers tend to be really stand up people, so I think this is a pretty cool setup they have.

    I just quickly read over IDA's page so maybe I'm off base here, but that's what it sounds like to me any ways. I can really take these tests at 3AM in my room while I'm eating tacos? I'm there :D

    Re: I Just passed all 10 of my IDA exams!!!!!!

    That's a great question. Being a member, so far, has gotten me access to some of the best detailers in the world. And for someone just starting a new small business, like myself, being able to reach out to any member for mentoring, or just random questions is an invaluable resource. As far actual customers go, It's kind of like being an ASE certified mechanic. Most customers don't know what ASE actually means, but by seeing the logo, they at least know their mechanic went through the proper training. The detailing industry isn't there yet, but it should be in the near future. I want customers with cars that cost as much as a house to have a little piece of mind,knowing that the guy spending hours upon hours in and out of their car, at least has clue what they are doing.
