Teaching is hard. It takes a lot of skill. Not everyone who tries can do it well. We need to admit that and act accordingly. We should reward and respect great teachers by paying them more, and we should stop rewarding seniority over effectiveness. Betsy DeVos:Current United States Secretary of Education
There are many so-called Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) certifications and they are worthless. Ian Cordle: PDR Industry Leader, Napa Valley, CA
Paintless Dent Repair (PDR), is still a very young industry and we are currently in a renaissance of sorts. The technology which allows us to make dings perfect has arrived, but the training is still very outdated and fragmented. Many individuals within the industry have started their own schools to teach Paintless Dent Removal and the PDR Process. However, many of them have made the fatal flaw that often befalls academics in any field.
In conclusion, anyone can say they are certified by another technician or so-called dent wizard school, but really are not "certified".
90% of all Paintless dent repairs (PDR) utilizes tools from behind a panel to massage the dent out. 10% of all PDR repairs include some form of glue pulling method.
Contrary to popular belief, trying to fix your dent with an at-home kit, dry ice, blow dryer, suction cup, or compressed air, is a myth. You are putting the value of your vehicle in danger.
