Getting trained by a Certified Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) school offers several advantages over training with a Non-Certified PDR training company. Here are some reasons why:

  1. Credibility and Quality Assurance: Certified PDR schools have undergone a rigorous evaluation process to meet specific industry standards. They are recognized and approved by relevant industry organizations or associations. Choosing a certified PDR school ensures that you receive training from a reputable institution that meets established criteria for quality and professionalism.
  2. Comprehensive Curriculum: Certified PDR schools typically follow a structured curriculum that covers all essential aspects of PDR techniques, tools, and methodologies. They provide a comprehensive and systematic approach to learning, ensuring that you receive a well-rounded education in the field.
  3. Experienced and Qualified Instructors: Certified PDR schools employ instructors who are experienced professionals in the industry. These instructors have extensive knowledge and expertise in PDR techniques and can effectively convey their skills and knowledge to students. Their expertise helps you develop a solid foundation and learn from the best in the field.
  4. Hands-on Training and Practice: Certified PDR schools emphasize hands-on training and practical experience. They provide ample opportunities for students to practice their skills under the guidance and supervision of experienced instructors. Hands-on training is crucial for mastering PDR techniques, and certified schools prioritize this aspect of learning.
  5. Networking and Industry Connections: Certified PDR schools often have established relationships with industry professionals, including PDR shops, technicians, and associations. This can provide valuable networking opportunities and potential job placements or apprenticeships after completing your training. Building connections within the industry can enhance your career prospects and open doors to future opportunities.
  6. Ongoing Support and Resources: Certified PDR schools often offer ongoing support to their graduates. They may provide access to additional resources, continuing education opportunities, or mentorship programs. This support helps you stay updated on industry advancements and further refine your skills as you progress in your PDR career.
While non-certified PDR training companies may offer training, choosing a certified school provides an added level of assurance in terms of quality, credibility, and industry recognition. Certification ensures that the training program meets certain standards, increasing your chances of receiving a comprehensive education and acquiring the necessary skills to succeed in the field of PDR.

Meet "The King"

My name is Todd Sudeck, I’m the founder and President of The Ding King Training Institute. I want to thank you for taking the time to learn more about The Ding King Training Institute and tell you a little about how I got started.

After getting a dent in my car and taking it to the body shop for a quote, I figured I’d give it a try myself, as the thought of painting my brand new car made me ill. I took my Snap On screwdriver and wrapped the tip with lots of duct tape and tried to pop the dent out, all with no luck. My neighbor was watching me and told me about a PDR tech that he used. I called him up and watched a trained professional take the dent out in less than 10 minutes, saving me a few hundred dollars. All I can remember thinking was “that didn’t look so hard” and “I could make a lot of money doing that.”
