Updated Courses and Platform Now Available for FenestrationMasters Version 2.0

An updated portion of one of AAMA’s flagship education programs is now available. FenestrationMasters® version 2.0 offers an update and re-design of the current coursework, first launched in 2012. Beginning today, FenestrationMasters 2.0 includes re-packaged course segments from Group 1, with Groups 2-3 scheduled to be available by the end of the month. Groups 4-6 will follow shortly in January and February. The first opportunity to sit for the online final 2.0 exam will be February 2020.

New Platform

The program’s new modernized platform allows for more interactivity and engagement than its former counterpart, as well as responsive design elements to improve functionality across all devices.

“It was key to have a platform that encouraged engagement, since hands-on training is crucial to learning and retention of information,” said Kaydeen Laird, AAMA Education Supervisor. “We are thrilled to have an updated tool for the industry to use for their professional development and knowledge certification.”

Updated Courses

The FenestrationMasters program provides training content based on consensus based AAMA standards. Version 2.0 includes updated document references, incorporating new information from any documents that have been updated and/or published since the program launched, such as the latest version of the North American Fenestration Standard (NAFS-17) and AAMA PSSG-19, Selection and Application Guide for Plastic Glazed Skylights and Sloped Glazing. New documents have been added since the original version as well, including the AAMA Curtain Wall Manual (CWM-19) and AAMA 1506-18, Voluntary Test Method for Laboratory Heat Build-Up Effects on Fenestration Products, the latter of which was not included in the original coursework.

“AAMA recognizes the importance of including the most up-to-date information in its continuing education programs, and we are proud of the updates made to FenestrationMasters 2.0,” said Janice Yglesias, AAMA Executive Director.


For those currently certified, the online recertification coursework is available in the original format and platform. Recertification coursework will be available in the new format in 2022. Those who are not yet certified and are on a strict timeline for 2019 would do best to enroll in the original FenestrationMasters program now by contacting However, if a company’s training budget and timeline allow, they may consider taking advantage of FenestrationMasters 2.0.
