Why do a training course?

In the automotive and furniture sectors, the use of leather has steadily risen over the past two decades. A third of all leather furniture suites sold in Europe are made of leather. A enormous proportion of vehicles have seats in leather interiors. Today, most clients expect leather seats in their vehicles. While leather is a durable material, it is all too prevalent to scratch, stain, scuff and damage. The leather repair industry, specialist stain removal and cleaning is enormous, and there is a substantial shortage of qualified and knowledgeable experts in the business.
