The Architectural Glass and Metal Technician (AGMT) program has partnered with Prometric, a provider of test development, test delivery and assessment services. The partnership helps AGMT expand access to its Knowledge-Based Test (KBT).

Officials say the partnership makes it easier and more convenient for glaziers to test on their own schedule and closer to home. Prometric’s secure online scheduling system allows candidates to book a test center at their preferred time and location.

Officials explain the need to shift the testing format resulted from two factors: an increased volume of first-time testing candidates and the requirement that glaziers retake the KBT every four years.

“As the program reaches its four-year milestone this year, our testing volume will shift from hundreds of initial test-takers annually to over 1,000 new and recertification testers by 2025,” says AGMT program manager Scott Kennett. “Prometric’s geographic reach helps us to meet the needs of candidates everywhere better, offering access to individuals who may not have ever had a proctored location nearby.”

The English and Spanish versions of the KBT are now available at Prometric testing centers in all 50 states and eight Canadian provinces. Many of the testing locations have evening and weekend hours to accommodate candidate needs.
