Additionally, an instructor training class for the InstallationMasters Replacement Program is scheduled for Jan. 15-18, 2018, at the same location. The fee to participate is $1,250 and registration can be completed by emailing

"The quality of the installation is a significant factor in the overall performance of fenestration products, which is why firms are anxious to have their teams trained and certified – it's a great competitive advantage and gives customers confidence in the end result," said Janice Yglesias, AAMA's association services director.
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 have successfully 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.
