I just finished my 5 day intensive training with Tony, and I have to say it was an amazing experience. I looked around for a long time trying to find the best training program, and I have to say I truly chose the best. The training if 100% hands on, which means you get a lot of confidence and experience working with the buffer, and all the other equipment and products that AutoShine provides. Tony is an excellant trainer who provides tons of knowledge, from which products to use to applying different pressure on the buffer to get the best results. I have to say that I grew a lot in terms of detailing experience in the past week and now I?m ready to take to the next step and start my own detailing business back home in Romania. I really recommend the course to everybody from the inexperienced detailer who wants to start out to the professional who is looking to truly take it to the next level. Tony is a great professional and choosing his training courses will definitely be a great investment in the long run.

If, like me, you have a passion for specialised detailing in real detail or want to start up a new career in this field, then this is the course for you. I did the 5 day course one to one with Tony &, for somone who had never picked up a buffer, now feel confident to take on paint correction to bring out the best possible sparkle. Not only that, but most importantly, you get to learn which tools & products are needed as well as the tricks to achieve the best results. A complete procedure step by step from beginning to end. Tony?s the man to show you the magic!
I did the 5-day intensive course with Tony and I have to say it was great. I did not have any experience in detail but with this course and with the help of Tony I learned a lot. I had the opportunity to work in a Porsche GT3 and it was beautiful.

I just wanted to say a big thanks for all i have learn't on my recent course, i can't believe how much i have grown in confidence since i completed my training with you, and this is reflected most in the quality of my rotary polishing and correction work. I did the 3 day course with Tony and was very impressed with the amount of knowledge and practical skills i aquired in such a relatively short time. The course covered numerous aspects of professional detailing and i came away with a much greater understanding of methods and techniques. Tony built my confidence from day one and we soon got onto working with the rotary correcting swirl marks and scratches! I always felt at ease and comfortable whilst on the course and Tony was always willing to share his wealth of knowledge. I picked up some fantastic time saving tips while i was there. If you are looking to learn about all aspects of detailing from a Pro who has taught some of the countrys leading detailers in a relaxed but informative atmosphere then i would highly recommend this course.
I have just got back from a two day training course with Tony at autoshine.wow what a course Tony's training is one on one and he show's you how to correct the paint work from swirls and scratches and more.
You are hands on with all the ways that Tony knows and using all the good types of products that Tony uses in his day to day work.
I would highly recommend Tony's training course to anyone, i have been in the valeting trade on and off for 20 years but have never got to grips with the finer detailing of machine paint work correction like what i have been shown.
So if you are just starting up or you have been valeting for years you will improve to a high level on Tony's training course.
Many thanks Tony keep up the good work
Very good training course, very hands on training. More confident with machine polishing, but best of all was to see the finished car .
Ive ran a top end valet service for over 13 years and decided i wanted to take my business to the next level. I did a correction course with Tony , i managed to correct a 5 year old black 3 series BMW to a perfect finish, so will be adding paint correction - detailing to my services. Thanks to the expert training i received from Tony. I would have no hesitation in recommending his training course.

Having only started my business recently, I wanted to make sure I was able to give the best possible service to my existing and future clients.
Tony’s 3-day course has certainly given me both the confidence and the knowledge to make that possible.
The wealth of tips, advice and product knowledge Tony has to offer is second-to-none, and he will tell you what actually works in the real world, rather than trying to get you to use something because it’s the ‘latest in-thing’.
The informal atmosphere made learning fun, and I felt like I had achieved a substantial improvement in the way I work by the end of the course.
I would recommend Tony’s course without hesitation for anyone who wants to raise their game in the detailing business!

I looked forward to this professional training for weeks and it exceeded all my expectations.
Tony's practical knowledge and experience is second to none. He dedicated every minute of the 3 days to my training and I sincerely consider it was every penny well spent.
He is truly a master craftsman in his profession.
Hi, i have just completed the 3 day course with Tony and what a 3 days it was, i have learnt so much in the short space of time i had with Tony and his wealth of knowledge on detailing has helped me perfect what i do and i have grown in confidence ten fold. Tony is very hands on and isan't afraid to tell you like it is which always helps with someone being honest, i carn't recommend Tony and his course enough to anyone. You wont be disappointed. Cheers Tony
Just want to say a big thank you, for all your help and training in my three day course which I enjoyed every minute, I have taken away with me a whole new level of skill, you explained everything in full detail, and showed me the products to get the best out of the job from start to finish. The finished project was amazing and don't think I would be able to get that without your training and knowledge,
Thank you very much.

I Just completed a 3 day training course with Tony, very hands on got straight on with the work. I learnt how to get rid of correct paint work on cars, getting rid of swirl marks and fine scratches. Would recommend to everyone whether just starting car detailing or just to brush up on your skills you will definitely learn alot.

I have recently completed the 3 day course with Tony and I can surely say his the "Master". Through the 3 day course Tony has given me the confidence and the knowledge using the rotary with the right products with the right combinations and all put into practice made me to achieve an amazing goal on paint correction and detailing taking it to a higher level. The knowledge of Tony in the valeting and detailing world is truly exceptional and the reflections of his work not just known worldwide but as well reflects on the work of people who have been on his training courses which I highly recommend who wants to fall into this business. Tony I want to say a Big Thanks for the great time up there and for all the support and help through the entire course Thanks Tony Orlando (TCDetailing
Good afternoon Tony Just a few lines about the training i received last week.
Having decided to leave the Royal Navy after 25yrs i decided to get into the valeting a detailing business. Having spent many hours on the computer searching for a course that would provide me with the quality of training i wanted. The one name that came to the fore time after time was yours. Having spoken to you on the phone and looked at the brochure you sent to me. I took the plunge and booked the course.
The course is run a one to one basis to ensure you get Tony's undivided attention and all of his knowledge is passed on to you in a very professional and interesting way. His knowledge is second to none and he has taught me a few tricks of the trade that can only be shown to you by some on that has spent over 20yrs in the trade.
Tony also shows which are the best cleaning methods and chemicals available i was surprised at some of the the things he uses as they are very affordable and readily available and do the job better than the so called expert items that cost a fortune.
The course was run in a very relaxed manner with Tony keeping the tea coming all the time he is very patient man and is willing to explains the whys and wherefores about what you are doing and the best methods to use.
I have gained a wealth of knowledge in a very short time from a man who is first class in his field and takes great pride in what he does.
Thank you very much Tony with out your little extra snippets of knowledge cleaned over lunch at the sandwich bar around the corner ( A Must visit place) it would have taken me considerably longer to get my business up and running.
In my opinion the best detailing course available.
Many Thanks Tony
Just completed my 5 day detailing course with Tony. And I can honestly say I have learnt a hell of a lot from him, his knowledge and expertise in the industry is second to none! And I would highly recommend anyone wanting to learn the art of detailing to get in touch with him.
