THE MEMBERSHIP SITE
Upholstery Courses UK has a thriving community that take their Upholstery Skills to a whole new level through our Continuous learning Program and AMCMU standards.
Completing one our our courses is the start of your learning journey. You go from your course full of knowledge and enthusiasm and, like taking a car out the first time on your own after passing your test, it can be scary!
It’s in your hands to hone your new skills, practice, make mistakes, take on challenges and get the job done.
"I Love love love my new skills" but ...
What shall I do when I hit a challenge?
If it’s simple question I might feel a bit daft asking?
What if I am asked to do jobs I haven’t done before?
What pricing jobs? No one is going to tell me that surely!
How do I put things right without starting all over again?
How do I know when I’m good enough to charge for my work?
Bags of confidence!

The Association of Master Car and Marine Upholsterers (AMCMU)
Upholstery Courses UK is launching an Association to recognise the car and boat trimmers of the UK . Registration will be dependent on reaching certification of each standard and by being a fully paid up member. You will be able to hold your own alongside the best of the best because you will be!
A Shelf with your name on it!
No joke - Our members have a storage area at Undacover and the shelves are labelled with your names!
The goal - to have somewhere that all your favourite supplies go to and you pay ONE lot of
postage to get them delivered…. Simple but a big gripe in the world of car upholsterers.
How brilliant would it to be able to have a purchaser for you? Someone that hears what your
fav supplies are then uses the power of their brand to get you the best price?
Tools that will change the way you work
Do you need help setting up your social media?
In fact, the way we see it - If we’ve got it you can have it.
We have been there done that and are happy for you to have it!
A bit of fun
Sam and I like fun - we don’t take life too seriously, we don’t like stressing and we don’t like the thought that you might.
We are massively proud of our community and grateful that our students want to keep this skill alive in the UK. So to keep you motivated we organise events, freebies, and tests on stuff thats new.
