-- Applied Colors, the online hub for car detailers looking to learn more about detailing and find equipment, released results today of a poll in which car detailers reported how they learned the skills of their trade. The poll shows that the most common way in which automotive recondition learned their trade is through independent research and experimentation.
As of 1:15 Pacific Time on January 10th, 2012, 66 members of four online forums responded to the poll. Almost all of them were car detailers in business today. Some were former detailers, others were in the process of learning. Responses continue to trickle in on these online forums. The forums used were on Autopia, Web-Cars, Auto Geek Online, and the Auto Detailing Network.
Respondents were given four options to choose. First: I learned detailing through a school. Second: I learned detailing on my own time Third: I learned detailing by working at a detail shop Forth: I learned detailing through working at a car detailership. Some respondents chose more than one option. Many respondents elaborated on their response in writing on the aforementioned forums.
