AAMA now scheduling instructor accreditation classes for InstallationMasters programs
Aug. 31, 2017 - The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) currently is planning instructor training classes for the InstallationMasters program. Those interested in becoming accredited instructors are encouraged to contact the association now, so that as many schedules as possible may be accommodated.
The original InstallationMasters Training and Certification Program, prompted in the 1990s by the Building Environment and Thermal Envelope Council (BETEC) through the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and developed by AAMA, is a nationwide training and certification program for installers of new construction and replacement windows, and exterior glass doors in residential and light commercial markets. More recently, AAMA released the InstallationMasters Replacement Program, which focuses specifically on replacement and retrofit applications. Both programs 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.
Since the program's inception, industry professionals ranging from fenestration product manufacturers and dealers to building material retailers and consultants successfully have completed the Instructor Training program. Accredited personnel are able to train their installation teams on the industry's minimum requirements. Having an in-house trainer allows for more flexibility in scheduling installer classes and can reduce costs associated with those classes.
