AGSC Spring Training Sessions Offer Certification and Invaluable Opportunities

The Auto Glass Safety Council (AGSC) is offering in-person training sessions for technicians who wish to become AGSC certified in two locations next month.

The first session will take place on March 9, 2024, in Clearfield, Utah. The second session is on March 20, 2024, in Uniondale, New York.

Each session will be approximately two to three hours long and contain a review course and the credentials needed to take the AGSC certification test. Participants must pre-register for the sessions, which are free for technicians from AGSC registered member companies and $39 for non-member company technicians—a substantial discount off the normal $149 non-member price. Each participant may then sit for the AGSC certification test there or take the test online within a month at no additional charge.

Jacques Navant, technical director for Don’s Mobile Glass and an AGSC board member, says being AGSC certified provides technicians with education and external validation that helps them take better care of their customers.

“When it comes down to it, if you’re not doing it right, if you’re not educating yourself, you’re not staying up with what’s going on with changing technology, then you’re doing a disservice to your shop and a disservice to your customers,” he says.

Navant adds that in-person training sessions such as these allow attendees to interact with other people in the industry in person rather than just virtually.

“When you’re behind the keyboard you don’t always think of everything, but someone’s reaction (in person) might spark another question,” he says. “So I think face-to-face meetings like this don’t happen nearly enough in our industry.”

The March 20 training session is being held in conjunction with Glass Expo Northeast and offers the same training as the Utah meeting.
