Having been through Brian's PDR class, I highly recommend it to anyone interested in this trade. Brian brings decades of experience, plenty of common sense and a good measure of humor to his PDR training! He is able to start with you right where you are, whether you have some knowledge or experience already, or if you are a completely brand new beginner, like I was. The course is a full hands-on, practical training style that allows you to practice, make mistakes, observe and learn. Because it's a small class size you have constant access to Brian, allowing you to maximize your time by asking questions, showing your work, and gaining individualized insight. The work did not come easy for me - it felt like an uphill battle most of the week. Some of that, I'm sure, is because I didn't have the chance to pre-train; so if you go, by all means try to get some practice in ahead of time. Even still, Brian was an exceptional encourager and was (and still is) committed to my success. The biggest advice that I could give to someone, especially those starting from scratch, is to just go for it and not try to be perfect at it! I'm glad to have had the opportunity to attend this training and to have gotten a start on this trade that I can carry with me the rest of my life. If PDR is on your agenda, think SAI!
Just finished the one week course with Brian in Laguna Hill. The course was very hands on and gives you a great feel for what it is like in the paintless dent repair industry. The first day we had a tool in our hand and worked on panels. Brian would monitor my progress and make recommendations based on performance for each dent/crease. Each day we would take a lunch break to avoid stressing the eyes. After lunch we were back on panels pushing out dents. The one week course is great for an individual to get a general understanding of the challenges and obstacles in the paintless dent repair field. You will go to a body shop to perform work on customers vehicles. All in all, Brian has a structured course for one week that puts alot of information into a short period of time. If you have ample time I would suggest the 2 week course to get more practice and more professional insight. Brian is a very helpful person who goes the extra mile in teaching the fundamentals.
I decided to take the leap and go to pdr school. I'm a mobile painter, but I wanted to add to my services that I offer. I went to Laguna beach to be trained in PDR by Brian. It was a really good experience. I gained quite a bit of knowledge and understanding about the pdr business. It was a small class. Brian had us practicing on many different panels and cars. He had us work indoors as well as outdoors. Overall, training was tough. He told us that he wanted us to be good techs, and he was going to give us the training to get us there. One thing that was really helpful during training is that he asked what we saw before checking our work, then he told us what he saw. That really helped me to understand how to read the dents in the light. It seemed daunting at first, but everyday I gained more confidence and understanding. I'm very pleased with the training. The tools are of great quality as well. The whole package was an outstanding value. You're a good guy Brian. I will definitely keep in touch. Thanks!
