Smart Express Scuff and Scratch Training Course

Duration: 5 days

If we do not have a training course available on the dates you wish to book, please send us an email and we can either try and arrange something, or will let you know when one becomes available. 

Express repairs are a growing profit opportunity for bodyshops and mobile repairers who want to tap into this lucrative revenue stream. Fleets, insurance companies and private vehicle owners are all prospective customers that will recognise the benefits of having cosmetic repairs to minor dings and dents at a fraction of the cost of traditional repairs… if carried out professionally.

We provide the most extensive and intensive programme available in the industry. It includes comprehensive training covering all the skills for smart repair, painting techniques and highlighting the best equipment to use.

Our programme also provides some basic business skills including advice on marketing and setting up your smart repair business. We always allow sufficient time for personalised tuition to ensure each technician reaches the required standard, and where there is a need for more detailed knowledge in any particular area of interest we can focus on this.
