The Auto Glass Safety Council™ (AGSC) has adjusted its certification program so the fee to become certified now includes up to three attempts by the same technician to pass the certification exam.
“The AGSC certification program is an extremely rigorous program, and we want to ensure that those who wish to become accredited have every opportunity to do so,” says AGSC Education Committee chair Jeff Olive of Glasspro Inc.
It costs $89 for technicians with AGSC Registered Member Companies to take the certification exam, and $149 for technicians from non-member companies. The fee covers up to three attempts to pass the certification exam.
The same fee applies to both the Accredited Auto Glass Technician and Accredited Master Auto Glass Technician exams, and in both cases three attempts to pass the exam are included.
The Accredited Auto Glass Technician certification test is an online examination consisting of 70 multiple choice questions, allowing an average of 90 seconds per question to answer. Knowledge in OSHA regulations, all types of auto glass replacement, and NAGS and custom-cut laminated glass parts will help in taking the examination.
The Certified Master Auto Glass Technician certification examination is an online examination consisting of 50 multiple choice questions, allowing an average of 90 seconds per question to answer. Those taking the test must have experience and knowledge in: OSHA required employee safety regulations; conducting installations according to the current AGRSS Standard; intermediate level automotive electrical testing and troubleshooting procedures and equipment; OEM sunroof repair and replacement techniques; advanced wind noise and water leak diagnosis and repair; current standards and regulations that apply to the auto glass industry.
