Event Details


A one-day, intensive, no-nonsense, training designed to help technicians get the peak polishing performance out of BigFoot polishing systems. In our years of supporting professional detailers, bodyshop technicians, and other professionals who polish daily, we’ve learned that while most users are getting deliverable results out of the system, they haven’t unlocked its full potential. In this course, you’ll work with our team of trainers to understand the dynamics of surface correction and how to adjust variables to deliver optimal performance, improved results, and do so more efficiently! This class will focus entirely on our flagship polishing system, BigFoot random orbital, for use in sanding and high-quality, efficient, surface correction.

THIS CLASS IS RECOMMENDED FOR PROFESSIONALS. Students must have a working knowledge of paint correction and be proficient in the use of random orbital polishers at the very minimum. There will be a very limited amount of introductory-level review included in this course.




  • Machine spot sanding for isolated defect removal
  • Proper application of the BigFoot Random Orbital System

  • Jason Rose, Global Director of Training
  • Dylan von Kleist, North American Marketing Manager



HEALTH AND SAFETY – Taking into account recent changes in local regulations regarding COVID health and safety, masks will be optional for the training event. However, if participants wish to tour any part of the facility outside of the BigFoot Detailing Academy, such as the manufacturing floor, a mask must be worn. If you have not been vaccinated we strongly encourage you to wear a mask. Students will be expected to make reasonable efforts to maintain social distance for the duration of the training and communicate to the RUPES team if they develop any COVID-like symptoms leading up to, during, or after the training.

TRAVEL & LODGING – The class fee does not include hotel or airfare. All students traveling by air should book flights to arrive at Denver International Airport which is approximately 40 minutes from the RUPES facility. Rental car, cab, or rideshare will be required. RUPES provides access to our corporate rate at the nearby Omni Interlocken Resort, and there are several hotel options nearby.

FOOD – RUPES will supply coffee and snacks in the morning, beverages throughout the class, and lunch each day. Dinners are on-your-own, but we encourage students to connect and coordinate dinners to strengthen their professional network and exchange ideas.

*Note – classes at the BigFoot Detailing Academy are technically focused and do not include business management, marketing, or operational coaching. 100% of the training is spent on the technical applications of sanding and polishing procedures.
