Auto Glass Repair Certification: Why It's Important
Centennial Glass technicians are fully licensed and certified to work on all vehicle makes and models, as well as all types of auto glass. Each technician undergoes comprehensive training to ensure quality service and products.
We are committed to keeping you safe while driving in your vehicle. We achieve this goal by hiring the best technicians in the business who adhere to Minnesota regulations and codes.
It would help if you only chose a certified technician to work on your windshield or auto glass repair. Here’s why.
Eliminate the Risk
An auto window repair mechanic who is not licensed or certified is also not held accountable. If you hire an unlicensed technician to repair your windshield, you are risking your safety and the safety of others riding in your car.
Centennial Glass specialists eliminate the risk, by hiring the most highly trained and skilled auto glass repair specialists in the industry. We only hire experts that deliver superior results with every car they work on.
Certification is a safety issue. You may find a friend or family member who has experience repairing or replacing a window in your car. However, there is no guarantee that the job was completed according to industry or manufacturer specifications.
Our auto glass repair technicians replace your broken windshield with OEM or equivalent window parts and install them according to exact manufacturer specifications. If you collide with another vehicle or an object impacts the windshield, a professionally installed OEM windshield will provide a higher level of safety for all passengers in your car.
How Do Auto Glass Technicians Become Certified?
An individual who wishes to pursue a career in auto glass repair, replacement or installation takes the first step by attending a certification program at a specialized vocational school. Courses cover auto glass removal, replacement, alignment, repair, and adjustment. In addition, they learn damage assessment, welding and cutting, dent removal, painting, and frame repair. Higher-level courses include auto glass properties, removal and installation methods, tools, adhesives, and glass safety standards.
Upon completing the necessary courses, the graduate can find a job, acquire the certification, or both. Although certification isn’t mandatory, obtaining certification demonstrates a high level of knowledge, competence, and professionalism. Certification is available from both the Independent Glass Association (IGA) and the NGA.
