Vale certification is a hands on timed evaluation of a technicians skills. It is the only true certification for PDR recognized nationally by insurance companies, Body Shops and Technicians alike. It will challenge a technicians skill on steel panels as well as aluminum panels. A picture of very high magnification is taken of the panel by their “dent reader” and is then downloaded into their computer system. Then using their “dent cannon” with specific amount of air pressure, they shoot a dent into the panel at the same spot where the picture was taken prior to the dent created. The technician then has a certain amount of time to complete the dent to an extremely minimal tolerance level. There are several levels of certification with “Master Craftsman” being the most elite (and by far the hardest to pass). We insist on our technicians testing and passing the Master Craftsman for PDR certification. Upon successful completion of testing, the technician is then awarded a certification number that is then recorded at www.valetrainingsolutions.com making it easy for the consumer to validate authenticity.
