AAMA to offer FenestrationMasters training demonstrations at GlassBuild America

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) will be demonstrating the new FenestrationMasters™ program curriculum at the upcoming GlassBuild America show held in Las Vegas, Sept. 14-16.

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.

“Participating in GlassBuild America as a partnering organization is a valuable opportunity for us to keep in touch with our members and industry representatives, as well as to engage in discussions about current industry issues and technologies,” says Rich Walker, AAMA president and CEO. “We’re very pleased to launch FenestrationMasters at this year’s show and offer demonstrations of this unique industry training program. Additional education and certification is an effective way to ensure that employees are well-trained and knowledgeable, which puts companies in a strong position to compete for business by offering customers the benefit of a well-trained staff with a broad knowledge base.”
