Would you like to offer Paintless Dent Removal at your existing auto body repair business?

Come and learn from one of the best professionals in the country, Eddie Martin, owner, and master PDR technician with more than 39 years of experience in the autobody repair industry.

Classes are individual and focus on step-by-step processes. You can learn how to work in a wide variety of scenarios, from small dents on top and side panels to more complex repairs like hail damage, crease dents, body lines, and dents on the edges of panels (see examples). Classes also focus on selecting the proper tools, access dents without drilling, brace configurations, and detailed secrets of inner panels.

We also offer additional advanced training, where we cover more complex damage in all areas of the vehicle, both foreign and domestic.

Advanced Paintless Dent Repair training Patrick A Paradiso


I’m not one for writing long stories or even putting posts on forums. But I had to write this cause I do like to give credit where credit is due! So here it goes. About a little more than a year ago, I decided to learn the art of PDR. I grew up in the car business, so I had seen it done, which interested me quite a bit. So I started doing some research on Paintless Dent Removal Training. After a few days, I learned not to go to one of the large training mills. Over the next several months, I started looking at different places to train. Until I came across a post on from a guy named Peter (pzmotorsports) who had written about his Paintless Dent Repair Training experience with Eddie Martin of The Dent Devils in San Diego. It sounded like just what I had been looking for, so I called Eddie at The Dent Devils and asked him some of my questions. I liked what he had to say, and luckily he had an opening for the time I needed. Once I got there, we got right to business with training. Luckily I could find my tooltip right away with Eddie’s help. In the 2 weeks, I was there, Eddie covered everything with me. From small dings, dents, bigger dents, glue pulling, bumper reshaping, headlight restoration, and even how to chase cougars and have a good time at the San Diego nightclubs. I definitely got my money’s worth out of the 2 weeks. The pace was good if I didn’t get it we stayed on that subject till I did. He even took me to Ultra Tools and Dent Gear, about 2 hrs north of San Diego. That was great having him and the owners of the companies help me hand-pick out my tool and accessories in person. It also gave me insight as to what goes into tool making. I left there feeling confident. Luckily my family is in the car business, so I had plenty of cars to work on when I returned. Too many, actually, as my dad and uncle were liking it too much having a dent guy in the family. I think they were abusing me for a bit, giving me collision work. So a year later, I decided it was time to open my own mobile dent repair business. But before I did that, I went back down to see Eddie just to get some final things worked out and have him see my work in person for approval. After 2 more weeks of hanging out and doing some dents with Eddie looking over my shoulder, I’m on my way home to open my own successful dent business. Thanks, Eddie (The Dent Devils PDR One-on-One Training), for everything I couldn’t have done this without all your help!!!
