Register now to become an accredited instructor, allowing for more flexibility in scheduling in-house installer classes and reducing the costs associated with those trainings.

“Since the InstallationMasters® Training and Certification Program’s inception, industry professionals ranging from fenestration product manufacturers and dealers to building material retailers and consultants have successfully completed the instructor training program,” said FGIA Education Manger Kaydeen Laird. “Although the manufacturer’s instructions should always take precedence, accredited personnel are able to train their installation teams on the industry’s minimum requirements.”

There are currently three separate segments of the InstallationMasters® program available, all of which address water management, installation materials and components, installation practices for various fenestration frame styles and shapes, job site safety, product performance and operator types and more through classroom training.

Released in 2021 and previously referred to as the “Original Program,” the updated Combined Program covers both new construction and replacement window and door installation, and its content was developed from the following consensus-based industry standards:

  • AAMA 2400Standard Practice for Installation of Windows with a Mounting Flange in Open Stud Frame Constructions for Low Wind/Water Exposure
