THE BIGFOOT ACADEMY 1-DAY POLISHING COURSE
EARLY BIRD PRICE: Registration before 2/28/2022 is $300 per student
REGULAR CLASS FEE: Registration after 2/28/2022 is $450 per student
A one-day training designed to help technicians get the peak polishing performance out of BigFoot random orbital 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 spot sanding and high-quality, efficient, surface correction.
IMPORTANT! Students must have a basic understanding of paint correction and have some experience in the use of a machine polisher. If you do not yet own a polisher, or have never used a polisher of any kind before this class is not a fit for you. There will be a very limited amount of introductory-level review included in this course. This class is appropriate for professional technicians or enthusiasts looking to improve their paint correction processes.
