Calgary PDR Training

It should come as no surprise that very few customers are excited about repairing small dents and dings. Traditional repairs that address hail damage, damage from small stones, and other road debris are expensive relative to the extent of the damage. These types of repairs are costly because traditional methods treat the entire body panel, not just the site of the actual damage. Why would you want to pay for the repaint of a quarter panel when there is only one small dent in one spot?

Paintless dent repair (PDR) resolves this conundrum. With PDR, it is only necessary to address the point of damage. PDR techniques provide technicians a skill set that allows them to fix only the damage, without involving the entire panel.

Paintless Dent Repair Training Is Now Available in Calgary

As you can appreciate, lowering the cost of repairing unsightly dents and dings opens up a vast market for PDR. When consumers learn of PDR, see its cost effectiveness, and understand the relative speed at which repairs can be completed, there will be a surge in demand. That’s just economics 101!

This surge in demand must be met with an adequate force of trained technicians, which is why Canada PDR has opened up its training to residents in Calgary. Those interested in acquiring the skills needed to further a career in PDR, will be interested in an overview of the process.

The Repair Process

PDR repairs result from a straightforward four-step process, beginning with:

  1. An assessment of the damage.
  2. Gaining access to the damage, specifically the reverse side of the damage.
  3. Planning a strategy for repairs, which includes selecting the appropriate specialized tools.
  4. Setting the plan in motion and making the repair.
