AGRSS Council Acquires Auto Glass Technician Certification Programs from NGA (Joint Press Release Issued by AGRSS Council and NGA)

Date: 8 September 2011
The National Glass Association (NGA) announced today that it has sold its industry-leading auto glass technician certification programs to the Automotive Glass Replacement Safety Standards (AGRSS®) Council.

NGA Certification has been the gold standard for auto glass technicians for more than 20 years. Its transfer to AGRSS has been in discussions for months, as the two organizations considered various options for improving their respective service to the North American auto glass industry.

“Our acquisition of this program is a reflection of the important role certification plays in ensuring the quality, professionalism and safety of auto glass technicians across the country,” said Debra Levy, president of the AGRSS Council.  “It complements the services that AGRSS provides and expands our offerings to this market, and we intend to invest substantially in the program’s value and expansion over the coming years.”

The sale was executed on August 30, and operational transfer is expected to be complete by September 30, 2011.

“This transaction is all about providing the best service possible to the auto glass market,” said Phil James, president of the NGA.  “We believe that focusing our resources and attention on our world-class auto glass training programs is better for our members in the long run, and it enables the NGA and AGRSS to do what each organization does best.”

The NGA will continue to promote the importance of AGRSS Technician Certification and the AGRSS Registered Company Certification to the industry, while investing in an expansion of its auto glass replacement and repair training modules offered through and its other training vehicles.

Information about the auto glass certification program, will be available on the AGRSS website at beginning October 1, 2011.
