Glazing, which derives from the Middle English for ‘glass’, is a part of a wall or window, made of glass. Glazing also describes the work done by a professional “glazier“. Glazing is also (less commonly) used to describe the insertion of ophthalmic lenses into an eyeglass frame.
The Glazier who works in Australia had better hold certificate III in Glass and Glazing at least, The AGGA(Australian Glass and Glazing Association) provides this authentication service.
Individuals and the companies they work for can benefit from a Master/Certified Glazier in a number of ways:
- It enables a company to reward and recognise those staff who wish to progress their careers
- As less than 30% of ‘glaziers’ are suitably qualified this helps to differentiate in a competitive market
- Provides career development opportunities and a clear pathway of progression
- Helps to counter the perception of glazing as a ‘lesser’ trade
- Potential to reduce injuries and fatalities in the sector through better training
- Gain better knowledge of products and materials that are available in the market and thus improve ability to sell to clients
The Skills program recognises four key status levels – Apprentice, Glazier, Certified Glazier, and Master Glazier.
