IDA Certification Skills Validated Exam

22junAll DayIDA Certification Skills Validated ExamHosted by RUPES at the US BigFoot Detailing Academy

Event Details

The CD designation is a great achievement and demonstrates a basic mastery of the knowledge and applied skills needed by the detailing professional. The pride of earning the CD designation places that detailing professional among a group at the top of their profession. Phase II (the Skills Validated tests) represents the four primary categories that each candidate must demonstrate their “hands-on” ability to perform. The detailer must perform each phase of the testing on their own, and meet the minimum proficiency expected in order to pass. The exam is presented in a scenario-type format to afford the detailer the opportunity to demonstrate the abilities expected of the advanced detailing professional.

Phase II Skills Validation testing demonstrates hands-on skills and in-person testing by an IDA Recognized Trainer (RT) in areas covered in the written exams: Wash Bay/Prep, Interior, Exterior Correction, and Finishing Steps. Each portion of the test will be a one-on-one teacher-to-student session.

This Skills Validated (Phase II) event will be led by Jason Rose, IDA CD-SV-RT / Global Director of Training for RUPES and space is limited to just 4 registrants
