Justin "JL" Labato (CD, SV, RT) of Melbourne, FL was elected president of the International Detailing Association (IDA) in January. He is a dually certified automotive detailer — by the Detailing Success Network and the IDA — and is an IDA Recognized Trainer (RT). He has officially launched one of only four Detailing Success "Extreme Detailing" Training Centers in the country, at his Melbourne location at 515 S Wickham Road.

The first training date is set for Saturday, July 7. Sessions are expected to be held quarterly thereafter. Detailers from the Eastern Seaboard are welcome to attend and receive their certifications.

The IDA is the leading industry association for professional detailing operators, suppliers, and consultants. They are dedicated to promoting the value of professional detailing services to consumers, while making it easy for customers to contact an IDA-certified detailer in their area. Labato’s RT designation qualifies him to train and certify new detailers according to IDA standards.

Labato has also been selected for his fourth term on the 2018 Air Force One Detailing Team by master automotive and aircraft detailer and trainer Renny Doyle of Detailing Success, making Labato the first president of the IDA to serve on the prestigious team.
