The Do's, The Don'ts & The Facts
We at Dentrix pride ourselves on giving our students the best possible start; this unfortunately is not the case with all PDR training companies.
We have had many students come to us after attending other courses; some of the horror stories are unbelievable.
Trainers only at the course for a couple of hours a day, after setting a task, They leave to go and earn more money working mobile, coming back at the end of the day to see how you got on.
Being left with someone other than the experienced trainer they were led to believe would train them, this is usually an inexperienced technician still in training themselves. This is what they call one on one training. These people were not informed of these situations prior to the start of the course.
A good dent man should be earning around £2000 to £3000 per week, if you have paid him let's say, a maximum of £1500 for a week he is still short of the total he is used to earning, the extra must come from somewhere. If he tells you a good dent man earns between £1000 to £1500 per week, although he may think he’s a good dent man he most probably is average.
One on one training is unnecessary, we have tried it. This is very costly as stated before, if you are to be trained by a top dent technician you will need to pay him at least £2000 per week, and for the best as much as £3000 per week. When on a training course you will start at the very basics, by attempting to remove a dent the size of your thumbnail, this will take an hour or two for a new student. So, why pay to have someone looking over your shoulder continuously. Every three or four minuets will be enough for the trainer to see when you make a mistake, why not share the cost of that trainer with other students. What we have found with students who have attended one on one training is, they progress very slowly, they only have the trainer to compare their abilities with and no one to compare their progress with, this can be very demoralising. Within a small group it is far better to see that you are progressing at the same rate as others, the talking and exchanging of ideas is of great benefit.
Tools are another great way for them to cash in, instead of purchasing the latest top quality tools made by reputable tool manufacturers; they make very poor quality tools themselves, usually replicating tools to make it sound better or do deals with cheap tool manufacturers. You've all read it, "Our professional 60 piece kit", and then charging you £1500 or more. This enables them to make vast profits from very poor quality cheaply made tools usually packaged in a fancy impractical case in an attempt to make them look good, or maybe you get a free tool kit with your training, there's no such thing as free, you get what you pay for. Good tools cost money, thus, not allowing them to make enough profit.
Fact is, most good dent men use the same few bars to do most of their work, maybe just 5 or 6 rods, the rest are there for the odd occasion if the 5 or 6 can’t get on the dent, it is vital that you piece together your toolkit yourself. The reason for this is simple, if you were starting out as a mechanic you wouldn’t walk on to the Snap-On van and ask for a mechanics kit, you’d probably get done for about £25,000, and sold a load of stuff you don’t need, we are all individuals and all work slightly different, we are different shapes and sizes and we all use our own eyes. It’s the same in every trade, plumbers, electricians, panel beaters etc all slowly piece together their own kits over the years and PDR is exactly the same, to put it in simple terms, what’s the point of having 30 PDR rods if you can’t take a dent out with 1.
At Dentrix we lay our cards on the table, right from the start
You will be in a class of 4 students sharing the cost of the trainer. You have bought the trainer for the week, no need to gain revenue elsewhere.
Complete honesty regarding tools, we supply tools to trainees if they wish to purchase them from us. We tell all trainees where we purchase these tools, allowing them to purchase them direct. We also tell our students where not to buy, Yes we have been ripped off too, with tools that look great on the web but go rusty, bend or even break within days of purchasing. You don't have to take that chance.
If you think that four students per class are too many, please read our feedback page. Our success through training speaks for itself; some of the top names in PDR were trained by our trainer.
The most important part of becoming a competent PDR specialist is, The Trainer. If you are considering a complete change of career don't compromise on the training or venue, a training school maybe closer to you but it doesn't mean you are going to save money. If the venue or teachers are inadequate, you will not get the head start you need. The money you spend on a good B&B and travel can easily be saved by not being conned into unnecessary PDR tools.
Many people attend a PDR training course and come away believing they are unable to move forward and develop into a competent PDR technician. This is primarily because of the inadequate training provided and the PDR tools they are talked into buying. We have had people contact us after attending training courses with other companies, asking for pointers on where they are going wrong. Sadly, on many occasions this problem is just down to the PDR tools they have been sold. On inspection of the PDR tools, we are finding PDR tools for side panel/door damage are not made to actually reach the dent in need of repair; these tools can be completely rotated within the door skin. Tools being unnecessarily replicated, and tools of poor quality manufacturing not suitable for removing the dents as promised. Ask the PDR trainer/company you buy tools from if they use these PDR tools themselves, whilst repairing for car dealerships and retail customers alike. Ask them to demonstrate all the tools, on a real life repair, the complete kit if you intend to buy in kit form. Importantly, research as many PDR tool companies as you can. The best PDR tool companies are owned and run by ex PDR Techs, they know what we like and specialise in making PDR tools just for PDR technicians, many to custom requirements. It is not uncommon for a PDR technician to have a selection of tools from various outlets in his tool bag. Remember, quality not quantity.
Always research the PDR training company you are interested in. Talk personally to the PDR trainer, ask if it will be him training you or will it be an employee. If you can, visit the venue and watch him removing dents prior to booking on any PDR course. Check feedback from previous trainees. This should not cost you a penny.
Do not be fooled into believing that you will be an earning PDR specialist after any PDR training course, this is a skill that requires: Self motivation, time, patience, concentration and dedication and plenty of practice. Do not waste your money on any 2, 3 or 4 week PDR training courses all at the same time; you will only be paying for someone else to watch you practice what you learnt in the first week. A 5 day PDR course is sufficient for teaching the basics in PDR.
Only re-book a 2nd PDR training course once you have practiced the basics and feel confident to move on, this should take at least two months and then, only book a subsequent PDR training course if you really feel it necessary. A good PDR training company will be happy to offer ongoing support and help with any problems.
