Choosing the right PDR Training Company for you.
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.
There are many ways to complete the Dentrix PDR training course as not everyone can attend 6 weeks straight. We recommend starting with two weeks consistently back to back as this is the best most informative start we can give a trainee. We have had trainees complete the 6 week course over an eight month period coming to us one week a month to fit into their schedule. This can work well but the key is to practice hard between each course as you only get out what you put in.
In essence, it may take 8, 12 or 18 months to get proficient as a PDR tech, good enough to earn, so spread the cost. Attend a 1-2 week course, go and practice for a few weeks, attend a 2nd or 3rd weeks course, go and 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.

What you should be aware of;
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.
Why not share the cost of the trainer with other students?
We have found with students who have attended one on one training, they progress very slowly. They only have the trainer to compare their progress with and this can be very demoralising.
Working within a small group, the advantages is that if mistakes are made by a trainee, all trainees benefit from the lesson learned. Discussion and the resolving of issues is a great benefit to all.
So why do other companies tell you that one on one training is the only way to learn?
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’s 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.

The PDR training courses are specialist courses and taught with limited spaces available per week and per month. With this in mind cancelations are a issue as we often turn paying customers away for dates they would like due to being fully booked. Therefore please make sure when booking that everything is correct and you read the detail below.
To book a training course payment is required in full to complete and secure the space required. When booking please understand these spaces are in high demand and securing a space by paying in full it will become none refundable. Dentrix PDR training ltd will however offer additional dates to change the course if a unforeseen circumstance does arise. The course start date would also have to be at least 4 weeks in advance to change the date. Dentrix PDR training ltd only in very extreme circumstance does change dates with a shorter than 4 weeks time frame. Once you have rebooked if a change has been applied we do not allow a change of course date again and it will differ to a non refundable lost course space should a course date not be attended for the changed course date.
