The Auto Glass Safety Council™ (AGSC) is in the final stretch of the harmonization of its Registered Member Company program and its Certified Auto Glass Technician program. The programs will be joined together by the end of December 2018.
This means that all Registered Member Companies will be required to have all their technicians certified by AGSC by December 31, 2018. New technicians of Registered Member Companies will be required to be certified within six months of their hire date. If the technician is AGSC Qualified or AGSC Certified when hired, then he/she will be still be considered certified at your company.
“There will be a number of benefits as AGSC expands its message to say ‘By using an AGSC Registered Member Company you can be assured all technicians are AGSC-certified,’” says AGSC education committee chair Jeff Olive of Glasspro Inc. “We will also be able to expand our message to fleet, insurance and governmental entities.”
So what happens if your technicians aren’t certified by December 31? “Your company will be removed from AGSC’s list of Registered Member Companies,” says Kathy Bimber, AGSC director of operations.
