The Architectural Glass and Metal Technician Certification Program (AGMT) is designed to provide an independent assessment (written and practical) of the knowledge, skills, and abilities of the experienced glazing technician in:
Glazing theory and the ability to practically apply that knowledge
Utilization of tools of the glazing trade and demonstration of safe work practices
Demonstration of competency in interpreting construction drawings and ability to lay out and install various types of glazing systems for glass and architectural panels
Application of sealants, gaskets, and barriers to weatherize those systems
Understanding and possessing a working knowledge of quality controls and assurance.
The emphasis of this assessment will be directed toward factors that will tend to minimize construction defects and failures, and conform to customer requirements. The Program is not a training program, nor intended for inexperienced technicians.
