    Autobrite bring you The Back To Basics Tuition Valeting Courses!:thumb:

    Hello there Bimmer!

    We introduce to you The Back To Basics Valeting classes! With the success of the Autobrite Valeting Classes throughout 2009/2010 & 2011 we are proud to announce our new official Autobrite Back To Basics Classes LIVE on Bimmer Forums and other popular forums!!
    This follows many requests asking if we could run a ‘basics’ course by members of different forums!

    Something really different here guys, we have completely gone back to basics with this one!:thumb:

    Learn the techniques, experience the knowledge and achieve amazing results!
    All of The Autobrite Valeting Training courses will be based on a combination of discussing the topics covered and putting them into practise! Yes you will be involved in all aspects - Its all “hands on” at The Autobrite Car Care Centre, we want you to experience the knowledge of our professional team and take your skills further and becoming more confident in your Car Care.

    Just some of the Key Points about the course

     Want a shiny and gleaming car but don’t really know how to achieve this?
     Get your car looking at its best but not take all day!
     Learn about the correct and most effective way to look after your cars condition
     Not inflict the nasty swirl marks in the ‘normal’ wash routines
     Using the quality Range of Autobrite Car Care Products to achieve the best results
     Trained by the professional s with over 20 years in the car care industry
     Up to date and professional Valeting training practises
     Everything you need to look after your car – the less confusing way

    As some of you may know I have personally been in the car care business now for approx 15 years. Starting out as a Mobile Valeting Business right through to Autobrite Direct UK! With all the experience and advice we have and can offer we have decided to launch a brand new course where we aim to train our customers all about the basics in looking after your car and getting the finish you want with the right products in less time! We will be passing on our extensive knowledge to help you to achieve the finish you require on your car - The easy way!

    We will be hosting a number of calendar events throughout the 2012 period where we will be hosting a class of approx 15 candidates that will be based with 3 Autobrite Car Care Trainers (a nice low trainer to ‘pupil’ ratio!). Here we will be thoroughly covering the whole procedure from the simple wheel clean right through the protecting stages of your precious pride and joy. The day will be 6 hours starting from approx 10am to 5pm (allowing time for lunch) covering techniques, product instructions & application, demonstrations and q&a’s taking us right through the day learning about the one thing we love – looking after our cars! We will be using a wide selection of the Autobrite Car Care range throughout the day ensuring the easiest of application and the best finishes. Simply the best products to use giving you a easy application and a excellent finish – everytime!

    The stages we will cover throughout the day!

    Preparation Stage

    This is a very important stage which includes applying various products to the car before washing it. The aim is to remove as much of the dirt and grime so that the chances of inflicting minor scratches and defects is minimised when you wash the car. We will be showing you the easiest and safest way to do this.

    Decontamination stage

    Here we will be using a selection of products and tools to decontaminate the paint surface ensuring a clean and contaminant free surface. We will be using our very popular “Purple Rain” decontamination product to show you the effect on iron deposits on the paint and wheel surface. Also tyres and wheel arches will be cleaned along with door shuts and body hinges, boot and other areas with various cleaners, degreasers and Tar Removers.

    Pre - Wash

    The best product we released back in 2005 – The Autobrite Foam Lance! Here we will be practising the methods of snow foaming in the pre-wash stage using again our very own special Foam Lance along with our Magifoam, various valeting brushes and tools. Seeing the dirt being lifted from the car ensuring a safe foam bath. A shampoo stage is also included with some quality shampoo products, wash mitts and tools and of course some very high quality drying towels! We will be demonstrating the safest way of using all the products and achieving a clean and dirt free finish.

    Lunch will be 1pm – approx 130pm

    This is where you will have the opportunity to pick yourself up a meal from our local eating restaurant and shops. We would like to ask if the 30 minute break time can be adhered to, to ensure the smooth flow of the training day.
    Ahh a break at last! Time to break for lunch for a variety of choices we have close to our premises. We have a McDonalds, Sub Way, KFC and a local pie and sandwich shop so we’re sure there is something to get stuck into before we return to the afternoons session.

    Paint Preparation

    Here we will be going through the techniques such as decontamination with a clay bar/lubricant and what it does, removing old wax protection from the paint surface using our very own “Wax Off” wax remover and making the paint on the car very silky & smooth ready for the cleaning and polishing prep stages.

    Paint cleaning, Polish and Wax

    On this most important enhancing stage we will be going through a range of Autobrite products from Paint Cleansing to a protective wax coating. We’ll use AIO polishes, sealants and Carnauba Waxes to get the best and most durable finish. Again a selection of soft towels will be used.

    Dressings and Protectants

    There are typically a lot of rubber, vinyl and plastic surfaces on the vehicle. Whether its tyres, trim or vinyl coverings here you will be shown how the Autobrite dressings & protectants work on all the surfaces, leaving the finish you require using the best application. To use the dressings you also need the right applicator, we will also show you how to apply the products using the different applicators in store.

    Glass cleaning and protection

    Glass cleaning is an art and to many of us glass cleaning can prove a bit of a painstaking task! Well not today! Here we will show you about the right glass cleaners, the methods of applying glass cleaners and the correct way to remove to leave a streak free finish – everytime! Protecting your glass is a very good way of enhancing your visibility through the weather we have here in the UK. Repel Rain Repellent will be used to show you the benefits of glass protection, easy to apply and the results are superb! And you’ll be driving more ‘safely’ as a result.

    Wheel/Metal polishing and protecting

    Dull and lifeless wheels are most annoying when the rest of the car is looking great! Here we will teach you how to polish your rims and protect them from the harmful elements and heat making cleaning them very easy to do next time around. Exhausts always tend to look dull and stained! Well today is your lucky day, we will be showing you how to clean and polish all your metal/chrome parts and trim to get them clean and shiny!

    Interior Cleaning and Protecting

    In this part there is a lot of interior tuition we will be covering. A demonstration of “Carpet Extraction” to remove dirt and grime from seats and fabric surfaces. Roof linings are always a chore especially as they are so fragile it’s difficult to know what to clean them with! Well your in the right place as there will be a roof lining cleaning demo and also interior glass, plastics, leather surfaces including dog hair removal, odour removal and interior dressings . The complete car interior!

    PLEASE NOTE

    If there is additional time towards the end of the training programme if any pupil would like to gain some basic tuition on Machine Polishing or want to try any products (we have been using on the day) on our training car there will be a opportunity to do so, simply please ask.

    So a full day of quality training from the Autobrite Team with excellent Car Care Topics covered from 3 expert trainers! Get your knowledge, advice, hints and tips, and product information from the The Autobrite Back To Basics Tuition Valeting Courses!

    What will it cost me?

    We will be charging a fixed fee of £50 per person for the full days training programme. You will learn the full techniques of our team and gain valuable but very simple “Back To Basics” training. We will cover all the topics mentioned in our itinerary and work together through the day! Also on the training day you will also be entitled to a special Autobrite discount on all products that are available in our shop.

    Once we announce dates, please add your name to the list at that point, however, we will require a £20 non-refundable deposit at the point of booking. I’m sure you can understand the reason for this.

    Important rules of the day!

    Please can we ask all candidates to adhere to the rules and regulations on the day .

    No Speeding
    No Rubbish Tipping – Use the bin provided!
    Non Smoking inside the premises

    Great idea

    Too far for me but I think many of us would benefit from a back to basics approach.

    £50 sounds reasonable.
    I'm loving it
