Earlier this month, the National Glass Association announced the opening of MyGlassClass.com courses to the entire industry for free in May on a first-come, first-serve basis. This was done through a generous grant by the Friese Foundation to help glass and glazing companies through the COVID-19 crisis.
The overwhelming response meant a temporary halt to enrolments and the start of a wait list. “Thanks to a generous, anonymous industry donor, the wait list was reopened so that many more workers could take advantage of this incredible offer,” said NGA President & CEO Nicole Harris. “It’s just this kind of spirited action that we hoped for following the Friese Foundation’s initiative to support our industry through education. The fact that it came in a time of even greater need is truly wonderful.”
MyGlassClass.com offers courses for contract glaziers, full-service glass companies, glass and metal fabricators, customer service and sales reps, and business owners that are designed to complement—and shorten—companies’ hands-on training. The full training curriculum for glaziers and glass installers includes approximately 24 hours of training and is valued at 600 USD.
