Among topics discussed is the fact that the Council has moved from a few selected audits of random companies to audits of all companies. As a result of this, one company has, in fact, had its AGSC accreditation removed, indicating that this auditing move is better upholding technicians to the best industry practices.
Council members also commented on some of the changes planned for the year ahead. In 2013 the board hopes to roll out an additional segment for retailers, a marketing component to that will help retailers to fully realize the benefits of AGSC accreditation. In addition, it was announced that the AGSC board has voted to begin issuing continuing education units (CEU) credits to AGRSS-Certified technicians. Installers who have been certified will be able to keep that certification alive not only by taking another test, but also keeping up with those CEUs.
