The PDR 40 (1 Week) PDR Training Course Curriculum

Our Paintless Dent Repair PDR Training Curriculum is the most comprehensive class in the PDR Training industry. It is taught and packed with all the necessary foundation building exercises to teach you all facets of PDR in the shortest amount of time possible. Students graduating from our PDR Training course should expect to continue practicing their newly learned skills until they achieve the speed and proficiency desired.

Graduates of the PDR 40 PDR Training Program will have the knowledge to properly access and remove all types of damage, including hail repair. Remember, “Practice makes perfect” so continued practice of your newly learned skills when you get home is highly encouraged so you can develop your speed and ongoing quality of your repairs.

The Ding King Paintless Dent Removal Training Institute teaches step-by-step how to remove small dents on top and side panels, and how to tackle more elaborate repairs such as hail damage, large dents and vertical and horizontal crease dents. In addition, students learn advanced techniques for removing more complex damage on all areas of the vehicle, both foreign and domestic. Glue pulling, tool selection, access, brace configurations and the inner workings of side panels are taught in great detail. Our PDR training program also covers the use of all your PDR Tools and we will make sure you know how to use the LED dent light and portable reflector boards while working outside.

The PDR 80 (2 Week) Course Curriculum

Designed for individuals who have an extra week to develop their newly learned skills with the supervision of their instructor. Benefits of this program include increased speed, confidence and overall proficiency. You’ll repair more severe damage and develop specific techniques for repairing more challenging dents.

Our PDR 80 training course is extremely beneficial for any individual who has no prior automotive experience. Expect your speed and confidence to dramatically increase during this second week of PDR Training. The objective of this course is to provide an on-going lesson plan which will assist in the reduction of time needed to practice when you get home. While it doesn’t eliminate the need to practice, it will shorten your learning curve dramatically and provide you with the foundation to repair dents faster. The main benefit on these programs is the length of time you get to spend repairing dents side by side with your instructor. You’ll repair more severe types of damage and train on many makes and models which will help you to develop specific techniques for removing more challenging dents.
