The Auto Glass Safety Council™ (AGSC) will hold a number of regional certification training courses throughout the year across the United States.
Each session will include a three-hour training course, along with time to take the certification exam. The courses will be led by Bob Beranek, owner of Automotive Glass Consultants and chair of the AGSC AGRSS™ Standards Committee.
The training program and certification tests are free for technicians who currently work for an AGSC Registered Member Company. For technicians who do not work for an AGSC Registered Member Company, the training program is free and the cost to take the certification test is $49.
The first course will be held on June 1 at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue in Bellevue, Wash. (suburban Seattle).The training course will be held from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and the exam will be given at 12:30 p.m. (Click here for more information and/or to register for the Bellevue session.)
