Due to current Social Distancing regulations and Government guidelines, courses will be strictly 1 on 1 only for the forseeable future, and a thorough risk assesment will need to be carried out to ensure both the candidate and instructor are safe......as operating in a training environment will break the set '2 metre spacing' as stipulated, due to tuition needs and requirements to impart correct methods during instruction.
*So, to book, follow 1 on 1 booking information whereby dates are flexible and to be coordinated to fit both student and instructor......we are taking enquiries to secure course dates from Mon 1st June 2020.
Basic & Intermediate 5 day courses
Train exclusively on a ‘one to one’ basis or as part of a small class (up to 2). Tuition is available with iDENTified PDR, for students who are starting out in dent repairs for the first time, or who have little previous knowledge and experience in this field.
These courses are split into 2 set 5 day schedules, allowing the individual time to go away and practice in between, basic: day 1-5 and intermediate: day 6-10 (optional as a one-off 10 day hit if you wanted as a one on one student and as scheduled on planner on occasion for 2 man courses - see dates below) providing 100% focus and dedication to the trainee, to achieve the daily goals set out in the programme, culminating in a theory and practical test to identify the level and understanding attained by the student.
Paintless Dent Removal is often referred to as an 'art' and is most certainly a refined skill once picked up and honed, but it is not for everybody and is nothing without a clear business plan and vision to back up your newly acquired skill.
Basic and intermediate dent removal course one on one and 2 students
The cost of 5 day......'one to one' tuition is £1375 (£275 per day) - dates for these are flexible and will be coordinated to suit both trainee and instructor. As part of a small class £875......(2 students) - refer to the booking calendar, see below.
All fees are payable in advance (no later than 7 days before) and 10% deposit due with confirmation of booking, with balance payable with cash, card, PayPal or BACS on or before arrival/start (day 1). If you are paying by cheque (to identified PDR) then to be received no less than 10 days before start date.
In response to customer demand, iDENTified Dent Removal continues to offer advanced training opportunities, designed for those who have previously undergone dent removal training and/or have a basic knowledge and experience of the business.
The course will provide further background and skills training to enable you to set up your own career in Paintless Dent Removal, (PDR), or as part of your Franchise package*.
Training is carried out in a live environment on the road (hence the need for previous experience), and is aimed to give you a full insight into the day to day management and the typical range of repairs, covering aspects previously taught or learned plus more challenging fixes, to include 'glue pulling'. Class numbers are still limited to one candidate to ensure the full benefit of hands-on personal instruction. Dates for these are flexible, looking to accommodate trainees where possible, submit enquiry outlining requirements and these will be coordinated as best possible suit.
An ability test will be carried out on day one to assess students' capability and suitability.
Course length is variable and can be booked to suit individual needs, from a minimum of 3 days to a full 4 weeks (20 days - Monday to Friday).
As previously mentioned you will be operating in a live environment, confronted by all types of damage and experience all aspects associated with the daily operation of a PDR business.
The relevant daily rates will apply, fees payable in advance ( no later than 14 days before start date) and 10% deposit with booking confirmation.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
WHERE - Located on a quiet working farm in close proximity to Stafford and it's amenities, easily accessible from both the North and South via M6 motorway. Plenty of hotels and B&B's all within close commute and details/recommendations can be readily offered should you commit to train with us.
AGENDA - The courses run Mon-Fri 9.30am to 4.30pm (flexible days/times for 1 on 1 training), with a 15 min morning, afternoon and 45 min lunch breaks - all beverages/drinks and lunches (usually sandwiches and snacks) laid on.
CONTENT - Basic, progressive step by step coaching to get you to identify position and movements with and without visual aides, working in open access areas of the panels. Familiarisation with tools and equipment (all provided), understand the different panels on vehicles and their accessibility - how to assess for damage. Be able to track and locate target areas and develop technique and apply the basic processes to repair small dents and creases. Recognise and correct high spots, 'brows' and displacements. Working with control and how to achieve the best finishes possible for presentation. The week culminates in a theory and practical test to determine level achieved and what to concentrate on once you head back to practice.
Intermediate - following on from your basic training and continued practice, repairing small coin sized dents and short creases, the second phase focuses on these 'self same' types of damage but with concentration on areas that are now restricted, both by external position or by internal obstructions. You will, once again, learn how to approach and target these zones using the correct tools and equipment, understanding the potential limitations and difficulties. These 2nd week challenges will include - boxed sections, suage (body) lines, double skins, seamed edges, bracework/strengtheners & side impact bars, as well as sound proofing! Again, the week rounds off with an ability test, both theory and practical, to ascertain your level and what to work on moving forward.
