FenestrationMasters is a new, nationwide program for professionals in the window, door, skylight, curtain wall, storefront and sloped glazing industries, with training content based on consensus-based AAMA standards.To gain the AAMA FenestrationMasters professional certification, coursework is accessed through MyWindowClass.com, which is owned and operated by the National Glass Association. The online education format allows professionals to complete the required coursework at their own pace and convenience, simply through access to any computer with an Internet connection. This professional certification covers a wide range of subject matter, including performance standards, product and material types and code requirements.

Previews of courses from the FenestrationMasters certification curriculum will be offered each day of the GlassBuild America show at 1:00 p.m., in the theater area of the Industry Pavilion (booth 1751). Individuals at the show are encouraged to attend a demonstration and learn more about this professional training and certification program.
