Phase I (CD) certification evaluates and affirms an experienced detailer's technical knowledge and proficiency.  It consists of 10 exams, 10-20 questions each, in these subject areas: Equipment, Chemicals, Windows, Trim & Metal, Floors & Carpets, Seats, Paint Correction & Protection, Wheels & Tires, Prep Wash/Wash Bay, Detailing Terminology, and Safety & Compliance.  Successful completion of the ten written exams will grant the detailer the title of IDA Certified Detailer (CD).

The IDA Certification Event - Phase I (CD) will be held on Thursday, September 5 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.

Phase II (SV) tests represent the four primary categories that each candidate must demonstrate their “hands on” ability to perform (Wash Bay/Prep, Interior, Exterior Correction, and Finishing Steps).  Successful completion will award the detailer a title of IDA Certified Detailer, Skills Validated (CD-SV).

Note: To take the SV exams, the applicant must have already completed Phase I Certification (either prior to or at the show), having passed the 10 written exams, to fulfill the classification of Certified Detailer.
