With so many options and different advice on training, it is vital that you research the companies offering PDR training very carefully.
The company credentials are paramount, their reputation, their success rate within the PDR industry, their attention to detail in teaching and repairs, including, the success rate of previous trainees, after all, a trainees success is the training company’s success.
If at all possible, when contacting a PDR training company, ask to visit the venue, make sure you meet the technician who will be teaching you. Ask him to demonstrate personally removing a dent for you; after all it’s his skill and experience you are paying for. A good company will offer you a taster session where you will be able to try your hand before making any decisions free of charge. Be prepared and ask all the questions and concerns you may have regarding the training course. We cannot emphasise enough how important it is that you feel comfortable and happy, before you make any decisions. Do yourself a favour, only book 1 weeks training at a time, not 2 or 3 or more.
Let’s put it like this, if you were taking professional golf lessons, would you cram all the lessons in one go? No, because to perfect, you need practice and time, take it in stages, perfect as you go, then move onto the next phase. A competent tutor will know the correct level you can personally take in, then you go and practice until you perfect, once done, you are ready to go back and move on to the next level.
In essence what I am saying is, it may take 8, 12 or 18 months to get proficient as a PDR tech, good enough to earn, so spread the cost. Only attend a 1 week course, go practice for a few weeks, attend a 2nd weeks course, go practice again for a few weeks and so on. Believe me you will know when it is time to go back or even necessary to attend further training.
Whether this is a change of career or as an add on to an existing business, choosing the right training company is vital to you being able to accomplish and master PDR in the long run.
Please take the time to find out this information, it will save you not only money but could make the difference as to whether you make it within the PDR industry.

At Dentrix we offer you time in our office to see how we run our successful PDR business. If you are seriously considering a career change or just curious, we will offer an insight as to what is involved. From the basic advertising needed to the accountancy system used daily.
All this is available at no extra cost. We want our trainees to succeed in their new venture.
We offer ongoing support after attending any PDR Training Course.
A certificate for any PDR course successfully completed with Dentrix Ltd is issued.
We at Dentrix pride ourselves on giving our students the best possible start; this unfortunately is not the case with all PDR training companies.
When you researched, were you promised a free PDR guide but on enquiry just received a list of training course prices? Were you told it was not possible to speak with the trainer, No, why not? Why are you unable to attend a taster session? Were you told, because you could learn too much and then not need any further training, seriously!!
A good trainer will be happy to answer all your questions or concerns without fumbling and will welcome you to attend a free session for your peace of mind.
Do not speak with a sales person as they will only tell you what they have been told to say and what you want to hear, not the truth. If you are told by anyone you will be a working tech at the end of their training course, avoid them like the plague!
The PDR industry is no different to any other, you cannot attend a mechanics course for two weeks and then open your own service centre the following week, the same rule applies to plumbing, carpentry, panel beating etc. Pick any trade you like, you cannot operate a successful business immediately after completing a training course. So why would anyone think you can in PDR?
Remember, if you get lies right from the start, why on earth would you give them your hard earned cash?
More and more we are seeing statements like, “we have been in the trade or in the motor trade for 15 years or 30 years”, does this mean they are good at PDR? Ask yourself, if you are a mechanic does this automatically mean you could re spray a car? Or when your car needs a service would you take it to a Bodyshop? If you are looking for experience in a PDR trainer he needs to have been doing PDR, not car sales for 13 years of his 15 years experience, or a windscreen repair man for 25 years of his 30 years experience, make sure you speak to the trainer and make him answer the question direct, how long have YOU been doing PDR.
We have had many students come to us after attending other courses; some of the horror stories are unbelievable.
Some trainers are 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.
Companies employing a local dent man, not a very good one but cheap enough, he does the training, but has no experience in teaching. Just watching someone remove a dent, will not teach you PDR, you need a good teacher, one that can explain every process of dent repair.
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 it necessary? In a word NO. If you want 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 attending a training course, you will start with the very basics. Attempting to remove a dent the size of your thumbnail, this will take you, as a new student, an hour or two to achieve.
Why pay to have someone looking over your shoulder continuously? Being checked every three or four minutes is ample time for a qualified trainer to see when and where you are making a mistake.
We have found with students who have attended one on one training, progress very slowly, they only have the trainer to compare their progress with and this can be very demoralising.
The advantages of a small group are, if mistakes are made by a student, all trainees benefit from the lesson learned. Discussion and the resolving of issues is a great benefit to all.
Usually because they aren’t a genuine training school and their facility isn’t big enough or geared up for more than one student at a time.
Here is a simple fact, some of the top old school technicians, who trained with Dent Master, Dent Wizard, Dent Devils etc trained in classes as large as 20 students per course and these guys are some of the best in the industry.
