GENERAL

How many students will there be at one time with me?

You might be the only one, but there will not be more than 2 students per session. This is important because Mike spends a lot of time helping each individual.

How long is the training?

We have three choices available, depending on your needs. You will progress through planned steps designed to develop maximum skill as quickly as possible.

Can I split my training days up?

Yes.
We realize some people cannot attend on 5 consecutive days.
Just give us a call and we will work that out with you.

The Weekend and 3 Day classes cannot be split up.

Is the training focused, with a dedicated instructor?

Absolutely.

From the time you arrive at Smooth A Dent, Michael Parks is working for you. You are paying for both his knowledge and time.

What time do we start?

The 5 Day class begins at 9 AM. Due to the heavy focus and concentration needed, you will be ready to stop at about 3-4 PM for the first day or two (pushing beyond that is not productive). As the week progresses staying later until 5 PM is not unusual, and you will have plenty to do.

The Weekend and 3 Day class is from 8 AM - 4 PM, with only minimal breaks to give your eyes and muscles the rest they might need. 

Will I be working on real cars?

Yes! You will work on every panel of a car as the week progresses except the roof.
The program is designed to begin developing your skills on a hood.
We then move to dents on a real vehicle for you to practice those skills and address things like access, dent location, tool selection, etc.

This is true for all classes.

Will you help me get started?

Yes, you will be given ideas on where and how to get and keep customers, how to keep costs low and stay profitable. After your training you will also be given ongoing support as needed for 1 full year at no additional charge.

Will I be certified?

You will receive a certificate of successful course completion.

ABOUT MONEY

Do you offer financing?

Sorry, no we do not offer financing at this time.

Is income in this business guaranteed?

The income opportunities in PDR can be substantial however no one can guarantee what an individual’s level of income will be. As with most things, your success will depend a lot on you and your own drive and perseverance.

We’ll help get you started and offer 1 full year of support after training at no additional charge.

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS

I wear glasses. Is that ok?

Corrected vision is fine. You need to be able to see fine detail to at least about 4 feet.

Can I do this if I have back or neck problems?

You should be in generally good physical condition. You will have difficulty doing Paintless Dent Repair especially if you have physical issues. Issues that prevent you from griping tightly with your hands, bending low, twisting, or moving your head, neck, or shoulders at different angles and then holding in those positions.

TOOLS

Are tools included with the training?

To keep things simpler for us and keep your cost down we do not include tools, but will offer recommendations.  

Will I need my own tools?

It is best if you bring your own tools and accessories to training.

Some students borrow our tools during training to help them determine what they would like to buy at a later time.

Mike will make a recommendation if you want.

Do you offer tools for purchase?

Yes. We have a quality set of tools available for sale that you may purchase at the time of your training.

We really do want you to be successful, both financially and as a PDR technician. So you will not feel any pressure to buy tools or accessories from us.
