What does this course cover
This course can be used as a guide to provide practice for those who don’t have either the financial resources for a full hands on PDR course or are simply looking at this course as an organised system to see how PDR is done.
Particular attention is taken into how tools are held, leverage, introduction to access points, remove and replace possibilities, safety aspects, use of lighting, tap downs, and removing dents using both pushing and glue pulling. We also have introduced some more modern techniques such as using the hot box and shrinking machines.
So far we have just over 40 videos are provided but this will expand over time in phases including more detailed in depth videos on specific techniques as well as more advanced pdr techniques into the future! These online videos are meant to facilitate but not replace a true hands on PDR course. It can also act as a reminder for those who already completed the course.
What this course does NOT cover
Let us make it quite clear that this course does NOT provide any form of official qualifications in either paintless dent removal and in particular removal and replace process involving car parts.
What you shouldn’t do!
Please note that it is essential that any pdr techniques discussed in these videos and within this PDR online course are not practised on vehicles that are of substantial or sentimental value. If you have a vehicle available such as hail damaged including if it is written off, or a vehicle that panels are going to replaced or sprayed, then sure you may then consider.
We also discuss some safety aspects of what you SHOULDN’T do in terms of safety. If you are NOT qualified such as with qualifications acquired by panel beaters and mechanics with the latest updated training in terms of airbag technologies and sensors, you should seek assistance from a qualified repairer.
Although paintless dent removal overall is considered relatively safe as a career compared to other trades, it is important to wear protection which may include heavy duty shoes and ear protection for example.
Your Eyes are your tools
Although not safety oriented, it is important to get your eyes checked for perfect vision. There is nothing more frustrating than being an excellent hands on person and then not getting dents out to near 100% because of poorer eye sight. And no we don’t recommend just going to the chemist and getting a set of reading glasses. Please get your eyes checked for prescription glasses.
Please seek advice from the relevant safety and motor vehicle bodies in your state or territory as to such advice and licensing.
