“Shops can be overwhelmed by technicians at their door after a hail storm," said TopTech Finder CEO Jeff Herman. "Now they can take control of the situation and find their own Vale certified techs via our website.”

Shops can post their jobs for free to nearly 200 techs across the nation. Shops can also choose their facility fee, and impact a tech’s reputation through a five-star review after the job.

“Vale offers the only independent certification of a technician’s expertise, and they’ve been doing it for nearly a decade," said Herman. "We’re very happy to be partnering with them to offer this simple way for shops to find Vale certified techs.”


Added Jon McCreath, president of Vale Training Solutions, “We recognize TopTech Finder’s commitment to helping repairers find the best techs in the industry. It only made sense for Vale certified technicians to promote their hard-earned certifications on the website.”

Vale’s PDR Technician Certification Program tests and evaluates a dent technician’s skill using measurement tools and instructor evaluations. Participants can demonstrate their competence by testing for one of three levels of certification which include Journeyman, Craftsman or Master Craftsman.

The certification evaluations are structured as a timed event with participants completing repairs of various dent size depending on level of certification sought. Results are evaluated using surface measurement technology to a specified tolerance. Surface level variation, as well as finish appearance and texture, are both electronically measured and visually evaluated.


Testing procedures for all three levels are endorsed by the National Association of PDR Technicians (NAPDRT).
