5K Professional Car detailing studio provides the industry’s most comprehensive, auto detailing and reconditioning hands-on training programs, seminars, and classes available anywhere.
If you’re attending a 5K Training Seminar, you’re going to actually detail a designated vehicle from tires to rooftop — all with the assistance of our certified trainers, 5K car care team members and your fellow seminar students. You will be assigned to a specific vehicle along with some of the other students and a team of 5K Professional Trainers. You will actually be detailing a pre owned vehicle that has swirls in the paint, oxidation, water spots etc. The interior will be extra dirty with soiled carpets, dirty leather, stained cloth seats, horrible headliners and miserable windows and mirrors. Your goal is to turn that dirty, dull, and stinky vehicle into a front line ready vehicle; you will actually help increase the value of that vehicle by several thousands.
