In 2015, the AGSC Board of Directors made it an AGSC membership requirement that all auto glass replacement (AGR) technicians employed by AGSC Registered Member Companies be AGSC certified technicians. This requirement took effect on December 31, 2018.
If you are an AGSC Registered Member Company, this means that ALL of your AGR technicians must take and pass the AGSC technician certification test. While this is not a requirement of the ANSI/AGSC/AGRSS Standard, it is a membership requirement to be an AGSC Registered Member Company. Registered Member Companies that are not compliant with this requirement will have their AGSC Registration removed following notice and an opportunity to get into compliance.
Please be sure to check the certification status for all of your AGR technicians at https://agsc.org/technicians.php. If any of your AGR technicians are not AGSC certified, they need to become certified right away. The only exception is for newly hired technicians who have up to six months from their date of hire to become AGSC certified.
AGSC does check the certification status of a Registered Member Company’s technicians at the time of its yearly registration renewal. If any technicians are not AGSC certified, the company is sent a notice of non-compliance providing the names of the technicians that need to become certified and a deadline for that certification to have taken place. Companies found not to have all of their technicians AGSC certified by the deadline will have their AGSC registration removed.
