The Dent Devils Training: Where new PDR masters are created!

Paintless Ding Removal (PDR) Training

Would you like to start your own Paintless Ding Removal business?

Come and learn from one of the best professionals in the country, Eddie Martin, owner and master PDR technician with more than 33 years of experience in the autobody repair industry.

Classes are individual and focus on step-by-step processes. You can learn how to work in a wide variety of scenarios, from small dents on top and side panels to more complex repairs like hail damage, crease dents, body lines, and dents on the edges of panels (see examples). Classes also focus on how to select the proper tools, access dents without drilling, brace configurations, and detailed secrets of inner panels.

We also offer additional advanced training, where we cover more complex damage in all areas of the vehicle, both foreign and domestic.

Please keep in mind that learning the art of Paintless Dent Repair is an ongoing process. The longer your training is the more details we can get into, and therefore the shorter it will be before you are ready to go out on your own.
