On October 27, the Architectural Glass and Metal Certification Council (AGMCC) along with the Architectural Glass and Metal Technician (AGMT) and North American Contractor Certification (NACC), hosted its annual meeting at the Hilton President in Kansas City, Mo. The meeting took place in a hybrid format to accommodate in-person and virtual participants. The participant’s meeting report provided an overview on AGMCC’s structure of voting rights, some background on its two certification programs, board nominations, confirmations, and updates from the past year.

Rodney Harvey, a member of the AGMCC board of directors, provided opening remarks, stating how encouraged he is to have those in the industry in person again.

The meeting also included an AGMT update on the certification process and the increasing number of involved members.

AGMT’s program consists of a knowledge-based test (KBT) and a performance-based test (PBT); the latter is made up of curtainwall, storefront/entrances and sealing sections.

Testing resumed in mid-April, and based on PBT results, 209 candidates were certified out of 276 that were tested—a 75% passing rate. The KBT has about a 90% passing rate. Additionally, there have been 11 newly certified contractors this year.
