Frequently Asked Questions Regarding PDR Training.
There are a few common questions that are asked so here is a summary on how courses work
First and foremost! Our courses are:
- One-on-One Hands on
- NO theory – We have separate online theory available – please ask us for this – it’s free for anyone who signs up for the PDR courses!

PDR Training Australia strictly adheres to privacy of applicants and graduates.
Some PDR courses offer accommodation packages.
Unless two or three applicants apply, all our courses are one-on-one training.
Our trainers encourage questions from applicants as it helps enrich the PDR course experience.
Our hours unless varied by trainer and trainee are 8am to 5pm and the trainers are dedicated to your training full days.
We do offer group courses including one-on-two and one-on-three but the overwhelming demand is for one-on-one pdr dedicated training.

Our support extends to providing work incentives as an additional to their developing business. As graduates, they can join out hail dent repair network and get work in their local area through our advertising programs and website exposure.
No way. Trainers are dedicated to training the whole day. There are a few instances in the advanced training courses 12 Day and 28 Day where the trainer and trainer work on a customer’s vehicle as part of the curriculum.
We certainly do and have had the pleasure of sharing our experience, skills and training with international trainees from South Africa and Asia and another soon coming from the Middle East later this year. They are doing providing services in a niche market in their countries.
