Call Peter for any new car ceramic coating you may need. Purchased a new vehicle and the car dealers were overcharging by nearly 1000 dollars. After speaking to Peter, I felt confident in getting what I was paying for and the results most CERTAINLY spoke for themselves.

Had scratches and swirl marks inflicted on my car by a bad car wash and being a black beamer did not help. After restoring damaged paint from the car wash, the car was that shiny I could not help but apply a ceramic coating just to protect the new shine. Talk to Peter from Dr Buff. You will not be disappointed.

In fact, it really has nothing to do with car detailing.

It is purely paint restoration training to the max and nothing more. This is not a cheap paint correction training course, but it will pay off in dividends which will be more than worthwhile the cost to learn the art form that is paint correction.

When you understand this level of detailing training, you are truly a force to be reckoned with.

  • Car Detailing Course Two Days

  • Master Paint correction And Detailing Training 4 Days
  • One On One Focused Detailing & Paint Correction Training Program

There is no actual time limit on our course programs. Only an average. Not one Dr Buff trainee leaves our training workshop without being thorough and absolutely clear about their detailing training and we stand strongly by this belief. We back our students with our name behind them 100%


Standard Auto Paint Correction Training Duration

This training course is one full day. We eliminate all the guess work and get to what just straight works. This course is for the detailer who is already familiar with detailing, or currently provides detailing services and would like to move it up a notch and provide a complete end to end detailing service. You will not leave our training course not being sure or uncertain of how to effectively correct damaged car paint. Certificate supplied on completion of training by Dr Buff. Dr Buff is also certified by Meguiars which you can be rest assured, that you are trained by a serious professional


Master Level Paint Correction Specialist Training

In this level of training, you are taught and instructed on how the entire procedure of paint correction works. You are taught to understand, how the tools you use work, the compounds, the pads and how to put this altogether to form combinations for serious correction or high grade polishing and paint protection sealing. This course again is for the detailer who again, not just wants to be a Pro but a Master in the field of automotive detailing. This training course is not for the beginner. Although it can be provided for the beginner, we do not recommend this course as it incorporates a high level of theory and practice in understanding paint correction. Some prior detailing would be advantageous before commencing this course.



Listed below Is What Is Involved In The Master Level Course



Vehicle Preparation During The Wash Procedure

This element of car detailing or paint correction is critical. It must be carried out during the wash process to ensure that only clean paint is left with clean lines and edges. Here you will learn how to use blasters, how to clean molds, trims and badges and most importantly, how to clean paint surfaces from contaminants such as fall out tree sap or spotting or other surface contaminants.


Damaged Paintwork And Flaw Inspections

Here, you will learn how to identify what sort of damaged paint you are looking at, is it car wash damage, is it owner inflicted damage. Car washes inflict serious damage to automotive paint. This treatment alone and identifying that it is car wash damage alone will establish what combination will be required. Flaws like scratches, marring, swirl marks, stains will be evident in paint. Identifying the source is important


Lighting And Its Uses And How It Can Greatly Effect Your Results

Immediately upon completion of the vehicle inspection, wash and surface prep, next up, you will learn about lighting and how light can effect your results. After all, if you can’t see what you are looking at, how can you fix it. Here we will discuss what lighting is…” REALLY ” …necessary and how all the hype and bullshit marketing surrounding big dollar halogens is not necessary and why the simplest lighting alone can help you achieve results


Masking And Protecting Trims And Molds

Masking and protecting molds is paramount when carrying out paint correction using high speed tools or buffers, especially rotary buffers that spin at high RPMS. There is nothing worse that burnt or damaged trims to off throw an otherwise perfect paint correction finish. You ill learn how to do this, the taping that is needed and how to fully prep all molds and trims to eliminate anything damaged by buffers


Makita Orbital Buffer
Zentool Buffer
Makita Rotary Buffer
Flex Forced Rotation Buffer

Shown in the images above are four high grade professional tools the specialists and Masters know how to use to their full extent. Each of these tools will make or break your paint correction efforts. Use them wrong and you can damage paint. Use them the right way, and you too will know how to transform cars into glass mirrors. In the Master course, you will be taught which of these tools is best for a given situation and what combination to use each and every one of these tools to achieve a mirror finish. You will learn the dangers of how you can seriously damage paint work with these tools and how to best avoid them. By the time you are done with the Master course, you will know how to use these tools like anyone knows how to drive an AMG in sports mode.


Identifying Types Of Paint On New Or Old Cars

Paints have changed greatly in the last fifty years. We have gone from acrylic paints, to two pack paints and now we have paints with ceramic clear. Here you will learn also, how to identify these paints and which combination wiull be best suited with your choice of pads, combinations and polishes to best restore the paint work at hand.  You will learn about hard paints and what is also referred to as sticky paint and how these paints can cause complications when correcting paint.


Wool Buffing Pad
Finishing Pad
Polishing Pad
Foam Cutting Pad

Shown above are buffing pads used by the professionals. These pads are very much the cause of so much confusion when it comes to to correction and finishing. Which one do you use for correction, which one do you use for finishing, and on what tool, and with which polish or compound. This is what you learn in the Master class, understanding how everything works and how to put it in unison so that it all flows and produce a flawless mirror finish each and every time.


Coating Thickness Gauges
Coating Thickness Gauge

A coating thickness gauge is an electronic instrument which reads paint thicknesses to assist in establishing whether or not aggressive forms of paint correction can be applied. No professional detailer should be without a paint correction thickness gauge at any time of their business life. If you are planning on factory paint restoration or aftermarket correction work, a paint coating thickness gauge will be a must. You can not take risks on removing surface material if you are not aware of how much material you are working with.

Here you will learn how to read gauges and how to understand the differences in coating level thicknesses which will assist you in correcting damaged paintwork by finding a maximum limit that in which you will be able to work with. Paint coating gauges should be in every car detailers tool box.
