AAMA Hosts Webinar To Provide Overview of Training Program

As the owner and developer of the InstallationMasters Program, the AAmerican Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) is now also the administrator of InstallationMasters. To get industry representatives up to speed, an overview of AAMA’s education effort will be held Tues., June 13 at 12:30 p.m. Eastern in a webinar open to the industry. The InstallationMasters Program is designed to provide training and certification to industry professionals installing windows and exterior glass doors in residential and light commercial construction applications.

In 2001, AAMA announced the nationwide launch of the InstallationMasters program. Since that time, over 11,000 installers have achieved certification, according to AAMA.

“Construction methods have evolved as have fenestration product designs, installation materials and code requirements, so it was time to take a look at the InstallationMasters Program training content,” says AAMA Association Services Director Janice Yglesias. “Last year, the training manual was reviewed and revised, and the program was given a facelift to refresh the brand. In March, the redesigned website was launched to align with that branding, but that was just the first phase of the program overhaul.”

Due to the differences in installation practices for new construction versus remodeling and in response to industry input, AAMA is reorganizing the InstallationMasters course content into focused segments to better address market needs. This dedicated focus is represented in replacement-only and new construction-only classes. Because some installers may cover both applications, a combined class also is being developed, but the existing program will continue to be operated until the combined class is available.

During the webinar, Yglesias will provide an overview of the enhancements that have been implemented since the administration of the program was brought in-house earlier this year and those slated for future release, continuing AAMA’s strategic focus on industry education.

  • InstallationMasters Replacement Program (available now)
  • InstallationMasters New Construction Program (coming in 2018)
  • Online Bridge Programs – will allow instructors accredited for the existing program to add accreditation for the Replacement Program (2017) and, eventually, the New Construction Program (2018)

Sit in to learn how companies and individuals can benefit from InstallationMasters. Register for the webinar to secure a spot.

“After 15 years of service and dedication as the InstallationMasters Program Administrator, we would like to extend a thank you to Intertek-ATI for their commitment to the training of installers,” says Yglesias.
