Canadian technician, Yannick Poirier knows he can repair a damaged car so the dent becomes invisible to the naked eye, but can he do it better than anyone else?
Vale visited Canadian Hail Repair to train and certify several of their employees in PDR. We ended our session certifying 23 PDR technicians and another 21 in R&I.
The PDR certification is a timed evaluation of work on steel and aluminum panels, using a state-of-the-art, digital-optic surface measurement device.
