AGMT Program Officially Live – Now Accepting Applications

The Architectural Glass and Metal Technician (AGMT) Certification Program has completed its final phase of development and is excited to announce it is now accepting applications for live testing.

In development since early 2017, the certification program was created with the help of numerous professionals (subject matter experts) from within the glass and glazing community, including: glazing technicians & contractors, architects, engineers, general contractors, construction managers, industry consultants, manufacturers, suppliers, and professional exam developers to produce an impartial, effective test.

With the goal of minimizing installation related defects and failures within the industry, the Program provides an independent assessment of an experienced Glazier’s fundamental knowledge skills and abilities.  To become AGMT-Certified, Candidates must meet program prerequisites and pass both a knowledge-based and performance-based test.

While testing location dates and times are still being lined up, first stops are scheduled for: Philadelphia, Baltimore, and the California - Bay Area, with more locations to be scheduled in the coming months.

To allow interested glaziers across North America an opportunity to sign up for the certification, the Program will run testing in the coming months, and will begin issuing Certifications to those who qualify on an initial “sunrise” date later this year.

For more information about the Program, including how to apply, fees, and study material please visit agmtprogram.com.

For any additional questions, please reach out to the Administrative Office at staff@agmtprogram.com or (315) 646-2234 ext. 214.  You can also reach the Program Managers, Ben Beeler at bbeeler@amscert.com or Josh Morehouse at jmorehouse@amscert.com.
