What a past student had to say:

"The Smart Detailing University sells itself. This is a statement that I never thought would come out of my mouth. I am not a person that enjoys spending my money. Whether it be buying a car, a new computer or even a good steak I always have my reservations. I decided to take a chance though and I signed up for the Smart Detailing University. It was a decision that has positively changed the direction of my life forever.

From the moment you step foot on the SDU campus you are a welcomed guest. You are greeted with breakfast and coffee to help fuel what is about to be a very educational day. The SDU instructors are always energetic and upbeat, possibly even crazy. Paul was always trying to find ways to make everyone laugh, even dressing up Greg in a panda suit and having him teach the class. As silly as that sounds it did set the pace for the week.

Smart Detailing University teaches you so much more than how to clean a car. They give you all the necessary tools that will help you start, build and maintain your new business. The skills are an extremely important and integral part of running a detailing business, but so is having the confidence and knowledge to do so. I learned that success is a mindset. If you doubt yourself then so will your customers. When you exude confidence and intelligence there is no stopping what you can achieve. When you invest in Smart Detailing University you are investing in YOU."
