Master Glazier Program

The Master Glazier Program is run by AGWA as a stand-alone scheme that is available to all active or in-training glaziers, whether they are employed by a member or non-member company. This is to encourage a larger proportion of the industry to participate and more companies to be involved with the glass industry's development and growth.

The program provides a defined career path that starts as an Apprentice Glazier, moves on to becoming a Foundation Glazier, with the aim to achieve either Certified or Master Glazier status.
