Crack Doctor Opens Repair Training Academy

The San Diego-based Crack Doctor Windshield Repair has opened its own training academy at its headquarters. Classes began January 22.

Crack Doctor president Gene Henderson, one of the two first National Windshield Repair Association-certified technicians, says class sizes will include eight students per course. The three-day training course is designed to provide windshield repair technicians with both practical and hands-on experience.

The training academy also is one of the NWRA's Practical Assessment Administrators for its certification program. (CLICK HERE for more information.) The course curriculum is based on the Repair of Laminated Auto Glass Standard (ROLAGS). Those who complete the course will be certified by the company, but also can take the NWRA exam to become NWRA-certified, based on the information they've learned.

"We'd like to have two to three classes a month," Henderson says.

Currently, the company is recruiting students from around the country, and hopes to eventually travel to various cities.

"Our program is national in scope,," Henderson adds. "We plan on doing what I call city fairs, where we fly into different cities and do a one-day class, probably toward summer."
