If you have ever wondered how to spend money growing your business, one of the best things I could advise you on would be to attend the Esoteric Elite Detailer Academy at Studio 47 located in New Albany (Columbus), Ohio. The auto detailing training is put on by Todd Cooperider, owner and operator of Esoteric Detail and Esoteric Car Care. Todd is recognized as one of the top professional detailers in the United States and arguably in the world. If you are going to take notes from anyone, Todd Cooperider is the one!
Auto Detailing Training Overview
The academy is broken up into two full days. The morning of the first day was a classroom like experience. You’ll spend a little bit of time getting to know one another then dive right into some subject matter. If you are in the beginning stages of your auto detailing business, one of the most valuable things covered is understanding the various services Todd offers to clients, how he prices them and most importantly, what product and pad combinations he uses on various types of paint. Being able to properly pitch your services to potential customers is half the battle and knowing proven product combinations saves you a lot of time and money by taking the guesswork out of things. I know that I got a lot out of this part of the auto detailing training as did the students who attended the class with me.
The second half of the day was spent going over advanced polishing techniques. Todd thoroughly explained the importance of each step being covered then made sure each student in the class was able to properly perform what was being taught. Having a professional critique your polishing technique can be intimidating at first, especially in front of other detailers. However, as you implement Todd’s suggestions and you instantly see better results, you selfishly don’t want the buffer to leave your hands! Many techniques were taught that I felt would bring a good detailer to a great detailer and as we delve even deeper, perfecting these suggestions would take your from great to exceptional. By dinner time, I know I was anxious to put everything I learned into practice.
The second day of the auto detailing training was spent with more hands on training and one on one time with Todd. Even though the class was done in a group setting, you walk away feeling that you took a personal training class catered to your needs. Todd graciously answers any questions you may have on all aspects of detailing and running a successful business. I encourage all future attendees of the class to come prepared with questions and topics you feel you can benefit from. Also, be attentive in what other people in the class have to share, they can shed light on different topics or points of view. Some of my questions were triggered by what the other detailers said.
One of my favorite parts of the trip was getting to know the other detailers and continuing the auto detailing discussion around a good meal. Even though I shared less than 48 hours with the other class mates, I couldn’t help but feel like I knew them much longer. It must have been that we shared that same passion for detailing and the eagerness to push their detailing to new levels. Even though it’s been almost 5 months since I attended Todd’s class I am still in contact with 3 of the 4 other detailers who attended the October auto detailing training.
