The Architectural Glass and Metal Technician (AGMT) Certification Program is a personnel certification process featuring a third-party, independent assessment of an experienced glazier’s knowledge of, and ability to properly perform fundamental glazing procedures.  The program has been designed for, and is accredited by, the ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB).
