Paintless Dent Repair Technician Training

Car sidepanel before and after paintless dent repair

This certified training course is the only one of its kind offered in Northwest Arkansas. It is designed for individuals who want to develop a practical, specialized skill set in a field that is not saturated, but rather is in demand every day. Through this training course, participants will learn and practice the fundamentals of paintless dent repair for both automobiles and motorcycles. This course will expose attendees to hands-on application that, with practice, can develop into a lifelong, lucrative skill set. Participants will learn how they can make a great income by mobilizing to areas reporting hail damage (chasing hail) or by connecting with local businesses and individuals needing dent repair services in Northwest Arkansas.

Upon successful completion of this course, participants will receive a certificate from the University of Arkansas' Global Campus. This course is limited to 12 participants. Register now to reserve your spot.  Upon completion of the course, one participant may be offered an extended apprenticeship opportunity to work with the ProviDENT team, where they will learn to hone their skill set and become a master of the art.
