The training part of the program will be held from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 30, and then the exam will be given at 7 p.m. On Friday, March 31, the training course will be held from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. and the exam will follow at 11:30 a.m.
In October, the AGSC will again offer a training course on Friday, October 6, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. in conjunction with Auto Glass Week™ in West Palm Beach. The exam will follow at 2 p.m. that day. Auto Glass Week will be held at Palm Beach County Convention Center and the Hilton West Palm Beach.

The training programs and exams are free for technicians who currently work for an AGSC Registered Member Company. The cost is $49 for technicians who do not work for an AGSC Registered Member Company.
The courses will be led by Bob Beranek, chair of the AGSC AGRSS™ Standards Committee and president of Auto Glass Consultants.
“We are pleased to be able to offer multiple training and certification opportunities in 2017,” says Beranek. “We hope technicians from throughout the country take advantage of these regional opportunities.”
