One important requirement of AGSC membership is 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, a condition of membership, to be an AGSC Registered Member Company. AGSC has made it easy for technicians to certify. Online training is available and up to three free certification tests per year are included with your membership.
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 who 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.
