Tri State PDR Training

Here's a little history . . .

What's PDR?

    Paintless dent removal also referred to as PDR, is a highly skilled process that repairs dents, dings and creases without harming a vehicles factory paint or creating the costly and time consuming need for traditional body shop repairs. PDR is the best way to maintain the value of your vehicle and is required on certified pre-owned programs and lease returns.

About Us.

    TriStatePDR Training is owned & operated by several Paintless Dent Repair technicians. Our team has been intimately involved with the PDR industry for more than 25 years. Therefore, we take tremendous pride in guiding trainees with all the solutions to repair dents well in any situation. More importantly, we are confident we can help trainees master the very techniques that have consistently led our TriStatePDR training team to superior results.

    We have worked tirelessly to translate our long-developed philosophy into a practical curriculum that enables our trainees to effectively learn the process of paintless dent removal. Our curriculum is the result of lengthy discussion and debate, contemplation and collaboration, all geared towards simplifying and dissecting the PDR trade for our trainees. Just as a pro basketball player learns how to shoot a jump-shot, or pass the ball to their teammate, our trainees learn step-by-step, what it takes to be a paintless dent repair technician. They are drilled in every aspect of the PDR trade so as to perfect the basics of removing simple dents. This foundational mastery serves as a gateway to learning the necessary strategies for tackling larger, more complex repairs and for promoting the trainees style and individual growth.

Why us?

    We have a successful teaching method in which the fundamentals of TriStatePDR Training are ingrained in you unconditionally. We are aware that there are great trainers in the world worthy of instructing you. Frankly, the reputable nature of other trainers within the industry is what has fueled our teaching innovations. The scrutiny to withhold the integrity of PDR, from other technicians and trainers alike, has pushed us to create a program that will yield a fine technician. We understand that, you are asking for the essential tools to provide for you or your family's living, to send your kids to college, and perhaps even, to dish out those beloved ten dollar checks for your grandchildren. If we have the opportunity to teach you PDR, we will not take what you've asked us to do lightly.
