Our PDR Training Course Curriculum

Having trained so many students from all over the UK and Europe we have learned that not everyone needs, or wants, the same course, and not everyone is a beginner - maybe you are at an intermediate level and are looking to improve your finishing skills, or maybe you want to specialise in hail, or learn how to work on aluminium.  So the curriculum below is based on a 5 day beginners course.

Course Duration:

Our courses usually run from a Monday to a Friday, but each course is a minimum of 40 hours irrespective of the days, and we can often include a Saturday and/or a Sunday if taking time off during the working week is difficult.  We adapt each course to individual needs - not everyone we train is a beginner, maybe you are looking for a more advanced course on aluminium for example, or you are just wanting to improve your finishing.  Contact us and tell us what you want to do and we will work with you to achieve that.


A lunchtime meal and drinks throughout the day are included.  Let us know if you have any food allergies or preferences and we will be pleased to accommodate.


Where will I be trained ?


At our new spacious and modern workshop in Maidstone, Kent. We have a comprehensive range of PDR tools and equipment to meet the needs of each course. Over many years we have developed unique secret training tools and methods that accelerate faster than before the learning of paintless dent repair.  We have wi-fi and parking on-site, a dining/relaxation area and heating in winter months.

Please note: we politely request that all students turn off their mobile phones during the course in order to ensure 100% concentration.

We provide everything you need during the course, so you do not need to bring anything specific with you, we just suggest casual comfortable clothing and don’t forget your glasses or contact lenses if you wear them.  Also a camera, or mobile phone with camera, so you can look back at photos of your progress throughout the course.
