Ding King Paintless Dent Repair PDR Training Courses follow a State Approved curriculum.  The scope and sequence of the curriculum is precise and specific to your personal skill which means you’ll learn PDR faster; allowing you to focus on repairing cleaner larger damage in the shortest amount of time possible. 

Everybody Learning Curve is Different

Not everyone learns at the same rate of speed as another person. Likewise, not everyone has the same work experience. Some of our students come to our PDR school with 30 years experience in the paint and body business and are highly skilled and understand how to move metal and what PDR is all about. Most often these technicians select a one or two-week program to learn PDR, realizing that ongoing practice is the only way to advance from a newbie to an experienced and skilled craftsman.

We are advocates for longer training programs as our reputation relies on the success of our students, and that’s precisely why we offer State Licensed and State Approved PDR Training Courses ranging from 1 and 2 week programs to PDR Training programs ranging from 3 to 12 weeks in length.

PDR Training Courses from 1 week to 12 Weeks

As a general rule, not every customer has the ability to take a lot of time away from the family or current employment to learn PDR in our extended training programs, so that’s why we offer FREE refresher courses, as well as invite our graduates back anytime they like for FREE additional training.

Again, the more you learn, the more you earn and your success is our success, so rest assured whether you attend our PDR School for a couple of weeks or a couple of months, Ding King will always stand behind our commitment to provide only the highest quality training to insure your success.

Upon signing up for a Ding King PDR Training Program we will provide you with access to our video library for watching high quality instructional videos prior to your start date so you’ll commence your training with the proper amount of knowledge so you aren’t wasting a bunch of time when at school. This is an excellent pre-training tool only available at The Ding King Training Institute and is the reason our students have an enhanced learning curve and move from exercise to exercise allowing you to repair damage cleaner.

The Keys To Successful PDR Training

For 29 years, our entire instructional staff understands that practice makes perfect and repetition and patience are key components for each students success. Developing the correct methods for approaching each dent is key and our personalized style of teaching makes sure you focus on the task at hand which is performing quality work. We don’t teach speed. We teach the techniques which will allow you to develop you speed over time.

The key to success is personalized over-the-shoulder 1-on-1 interaction working on all types of vehicles. That is exactly what you should expect at The Ding King.

Your Success is Our Success!
