Even if you are in the TAFE system, this professional training system will supplement your skills in similar trades. Our research suggests that more and more panel beaters and also mechanics are re-training to have this as one of their skills in the workshop. One of the reasons stem back to the standard requirement for PDR quotes from insurance companies.
What incentive is there to take up a trade as a PDR Technician?
The answer is simple – supply and demand! There is simply a lack of PDR Technicians in Australia. Even as recent as the Melbourne hailstorm in 2010, approval was granted for special working visa permits for overseas technicians to come to Australia. Once again in the Perth and Christmas Day Melbourne hailstorm more overseas PDR technicians were able to get work in Australia.
What incentive is there for companies in the automotive to train their staff in Paintless Dent Removal?
It makes sense when considering a five year business plan to incorporate trends in the industry. The trend towards the PDR industry is already happening – not only in Australia but globally. Given the insurance industry around the world are looking for more efficient methods of repair, the demands for technicians should continue to increase.
Recently, many people have applied because they have seen first hand what PDR Technicians are earning in the work environment. Very few if any career can even compare!
What are the typical earnings
Take for example a typical day in the storm. Each average dent for an average technician takes 2 to 3 minutes to complete and that charge is $60 – $70 per dent typically. On a per day basis, a car a day yields typically $2000 per day on average from what I have experienced! Yes it is a seasonal working in the summer months but there are no reasons of heading off to Europe and the United States with a work visa and earn during their summer period – our off season. Incidentally, I have seen $48000 paid for 2 months of work – for some that is almost a year’s wage!
