    Welcome to the forum. Are you looking to become a certified CarPro installer? Or just interested in using their products? Sometimes the best way to learn is to just jump in and try the available products.

    Right now I’d like to try the products. Currently looking at starting my own detailing business. If I could find official training I would like to.

    Detail training

    You can buy the products you are I retested and try them out. Thatís how some of us learned the products. At least thatís how I did.

    If you are not familiar with paint correction or any sort of polishing then you may want to invest in a junkyard hood to practice on.

    Rupes has a good video series right now but mostly on their product range. But it will give you the basics to understand.

    Detailing is rather easy to pick up. Just labor intensive.

    Autogeek offers classes here and there.

    Has anyone taken the Autogeek class? Worth the time and money? Would prefer a class specific to Carpro products but would consider Autogeeks class as a second option.

    I know it’s an old post but…
    Back in 2018 I did the Autogeek 3 day Boat Camp class. Mike Phillips was still there. The following year I did the Boat class, again, Mike Phillips was still there.

    IMO, the class was worth it. 3 solid days of hands-on training. Mike made you work…which was great? Friday and Saturday we started earlier than was scheduled, both days were 10 hours or so.
    Sunday we started early but was finished by 1600.
    I don’t know if it’s still done but Mike held a dinner meet and greet on Saturday. Very relaxed hang out at the hotel nearby that offered a discount rate. That was a good time.

    I know Mike is now at McKee 37 and is doing classes with Nick Rutter. May want to look into that. I haven’t done a class with the new folks at Autogeek.

    Hope this helps…

    Here's what I heard...

    About 6 years ago Bob McKee sold Autogeek to Vision Investments LLC
    Vision Investments had a 5-year lease on the AG building owned by Bob.
    Part of the sale was that Bob McKee kept McKee's 37 (with his name on it)
    Bob McKee then built a building (about 2 blocks away) for McKee's 37.

    When the lease was up on the Autogeek building (that Bob McKee owned) AG moved to another location in Stuart.
    Nick Rutter went to work at McKee's 37 doing detailing classes.

    Meghan Poirier, Mike Phillips, and Yancy Martinez may have had work contracts with Vision Investments LLC.
    When Vision Investments' five years were up, Mike Phillips and Yancy Martinez left and went to 3D Products.

    Meghan Poirier recently left Vision Investments/AG and went to work at CarCandy Automotive Detail Products.

    Recently...
    I heard the Autogeek-Autopia/Vision Investments has now moved to Texas.

    Bob McKee has started Autoforge.net and Nick Rutter and Mike Phillips are working there doing detailing classes.
    Autoforge and McKee's 37 are in the original building that Bob McKee owns (Stuart, Fl) and Autogeek started in.

    I'm not 100% sure about any of these items. Some is what I heard. Some is what I remember and some may be rumors.

    If you're interested in getting formal training on how to install CarPro products, there are a few options available:

    Attend a training event: CarPro offers regular training events for professional detailers and installers. These events cover a range of topics, including product selection, application techniques, and troubleshooting. You can check the CarPro website or contact their customer service team to find out about upcoming training events in your area.

    Take an online course: CarPro also offers online training courses for detailers and installers. These courses cover the same material as the in-person training events, but are delivered in a self-paced, online format. You can access these courses through the CarPro website.

    Seek out a local installer: If you're not a professional detailer or installer yourself, you may be able to find a local professional who has been trained in CarPro products. Contact your local auto detailing shops or search online for professional installers in your area. You can ask them about their experience with CarPro products and whether they offer any training or certification programs.

    No matter which option you choose, getting formal training in how to install CarPro products can help you achieve the best possible results and ensure that you're using the products correctly and safely.
