AGMT Certification Program:
The Architectural Glass and Metal Technician (AGMT) Certification Program, currently in the development stage, is being guided by steering committees made up of a balanced voice of industry experts from the three primary stakeholder segments of the glass and glazing industry:
– Glazing contractors
– Glazing technicians/installers
– User Community, including manufacturers/suppliers, architects, specification writers, consultants, and miscellaneous industry
