A total of seven Techna-Glass technicians from Taylorsville, Utah, took and passed the Auto Glass Safety Council™’s (AGSC) Accredited Master Auto Glass Technician exam during the month of May. This is the highest number of technicians from one company ever to pass the Master exam in one month.
The Techna-Glass technicians who received their Master Accreditations included: Jon Barney, Joshua Burke, Scott Fullmer, Brett Pierce, Ben Rorick, Mitchell Trujillo and Zachary Bullock.
The company has been in the business for more than 25 years. “[Company founder] Troy Mason got into the business because his father had always been in the glass industry,” says Haley Mason of TechnaGlass. “Both Troy’s mom and dad ended up working for him for more than 20 years and now have recently retired.”
When asked how the company chose to seek the Master Certification for these technicians, Haley Mason says, “TechnaGlass is committed to training all of their technicians to the highest standards, making them true auto glass professionals.”
The Accredited Master Auto Glass Technician exam is an online test consisting of 50 multiple choice questions. Those who apply to become Accredited Master Auto Glass Technicians must have experience and knowledge in: OSHA-required employee safety regulations; conducting all installations according to the current ANSI/AGSC/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; and current standards and regulations that apply to the auto glass industry. To be eligible for this exam, technicians must also have 3+ years in the auto glass industry, hold an unexpired General Auto Glass Technician certificate, and be an employee of an AGSC Registered Member Company.
