By September 19 , 2016

The National Glass Association (NGA) is pleased to announce it has partnered with the Australian Glass and Glazing Association (AGGA) to provide MyGlassClass.com students access to a number of new online educational courses.

“AGGA is dedicated to elevating the glazing profession not only in Australia, but around the world, and has invested substantial resources in the development of high-quality training materials,” said Jenni Chase, NGA’s content director.  “The addition of AGGA’s training materials to the new MyGlassClass.com online course curriculum will benefit the entire U.S. glass and glazing industry as it seeks to add skilled glaziers to the workforce.”

NGA’s MyGlassClass.com will relaunch in October 2016 with a new user interface and interactive online courses specifically designed to meet the training needs of contract glaziers and full-service glass companies.

“The Australian Glass & Glazing Association is delighted to be working alongside NGA in the MyGlassClass.com online training and development,” said Patrick Gavaghan, national training manager for the AGGA. “We look forward to building on this initial collaboration as both associations continue to support our members’ access to quality training and professional growth.”
