Choosing the right training company for you.
Whether you are considering a complete change of career or want to upgrade your existing PDR skills, with so many options and advice on PDR training, it is vital that you research any training company very carefully.
The company credentials are paramount. Their reputation and experience, their success rate within the PDR industry, their attention to detail in teaching and repairs plus the success rate of previous trainees. After all, their success is the training company’s success.
When contacting a PDR training company, it is important and if possible, to visit the training venue and personally meet the technician who will be teaching you.
A good PDR training company will offer you a taster session where you will be able to try your hand before making any decisions, this should be free of charge.
Ask for a demonstration from your trainer personally removing a dent for you. After all it’s their skill and experience you are paying for.
Be prepared. Ask questions and raise any concerns you may have regarding the training course. Taking notes can be beneficial
We cannot emphasise enough how important it is that you feel comfortable and happy before you make a commitment in booking a course.
It is so important that only the most focused student with adequate physical condition attends. This is a concentrated PDR training course, good hand-eye coordination and 20/20 correctable vision are required (glasses or contact lenses are fine) PDR is physical, demanding and requires adequate good health.
No previous experience in the motor industry is necessary for you to consider PDR as your next career choice, and if you have worked or do work in the car wash, detailing, mechanical, bodyshop, SMART repair or panel beating industry already, why not upskill and add PDR to your arsenal.
